Scenic Eclipse II - 228 Guests

MAWSON`S Antarctica: Along The East Coast

25 Day Queenstown to Hobart


In the footsteps of explorers (and penguins) around the icy southern continent

There are few destinations that spark travel wanderlust quite like East Antarctica. From penguins, whales and seals to icebergs and glaciers, see the southern continent and re-live the stories of those who first navigated it in 6-star ultra-luxury on a Scenic Eclipse Expedition Voyage.
For centuries, avid travellers and explorers have been fascinated by the world’s most southern continent, a place where penguins congregate in the thousands and people are few and far between. With an ever-changing landscape of glaciers and icebergs, Antarctica’s realms are wild - particularly along the East Coast, where Australia has a rich history of exploration thanks to the pioneering efforts of explorer Sir Douglas Mawson. You’ll have the rare opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Mawson and his team, navigating remote bays and ravishing coves and islands where wildlife rules supreme. And you’ll see it in 6-star ultra-luxury on board Scenic Eclipse, in the company of only up to 200 guests. The itinerary provided is an example of what you may experience. Antarctica is an incredible destination, and you will be exposed to the unpredictability of the region. The expert team on board will work with the weather and ice conditions to deliver a wonderous voyage.
