Your Expedition Experience

What will you experience?

This expedition includes ALL of the experiences in The Ultima Day, plus far more. In addition to your visits to the Antarctic Ice Wall, the Antarctic Ice Tunnel, the Continental Ice Shelf, this is your chance to take to the skies above Antarctica, in search of the Emperor Penguins colony. Our ski-equipped aircraft will fly past Queen Maud Land’s mighty mountain ranges, the Antarctic Ice Cap, deep crevasses and icebergs on the horizon. 

The Highlight

Visit the emperor
penguin colony

Your expedition flight will land at a remote penguin colony where the majestic Emperor Penguins spend the early Antarctic Summer. Within the strictest guidelines to protect these creatures, a short walk will take us to within sight of the largest of all penguins on Earth, measuring up to 122cm in height, and 40kg in weight, the size of a small adult human.

The colony consists of fluffy chicks, awaiting their parents’ return from the ocean with a fresh meal, couples re-uniting with each other and huddling against each other for warmth, or occasionally bathing in the Antarctic sunshine.
