Santiago — Antarctic Dream, experts in the polar regions, is launching their new program, Antarctic Polar Circle Crossing departing from Ushuaia on January 6, 2012 and returning to Ushuaia January 19, 2012 with the main goal to cross the Polar Circle at 66°33’44”S (subject to weather and ice conditions).
The Antarctic Dream will be visiting places seldom seen by human beings, a true first-hand experience with nature and its spectacular fauna. This is an extension of the Antarctic Dream Expedition Program from 11 days to 14 days in order to achieve the main destination, “to cross the Polar Circle”.
The Antarctic Dream will go across the narrow Lemaire Channel, whose high cliffs and narrow waterway make it one of the most beautiful passages in the world, and provided weather and ice conditions are good enough, passengers will be able to visit Petermann and Yalour islands. Adventurers will celebrate its arrival within Antarctica’s “inner circle” with a well-deserved glass of champagne, and then continue exploring the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula.
