Ross Sea with Helicopters - Ortelius
Travel with a group of fellow active adventurers to the farthest reaches of Antarctica. This ship has helicopters which make landings more accessible in rough seas.
Antarctica: Drink It In
Experience some of the far south’s most scenic locations on both sides of the Antarctic circle, including Macquarie Island, Campbell Island, and Antarctica’s seldom-visited Ross Sea, which we plan to explore with helicopters. Sail to the southern parts of the Antarctic Peninsula, Peter I Island, the Bellingshausen and Amundsen Seas into the Ross Sea. Visiting the Ross Ice-shelf, Dry Valleys, McMurdo Station, Macquarie Island, Campbell Island and the historic huts of Scott and Shackleton.
- •Visit some of the most remote areas of Antarctica that hardly anyone gets to see and use helicopters to fly to shore when seas are too rough for zodiac landings.
•See the Ross Ice Shelf, the largest ice shelf in the world that's constantly changing with the receding ice masses.
•This operator has a reputation for offering consistently great, active trips on more basic ships. This voyage to the farthest reaches of Antarctica will be no exception.
