Advan­ced Ant­arc­ti­ca: with MV Orte­li­us to the Ross Sea

The Ross Sea is a remo­te part of a remo­te con­ti­nent: Ant­arc­ti­ca. Most tou­rist voya­ges visit the Ant­arc­tic Pen­in­su­la, whe­re­as the Ross Sea area sel­dom sees crui­se ships. You may call it “Ant­arc­ti­ca for advan­ced lear­ners”: For “begin­ners”, it means main­ly a long, expen­siv ship jour­ney over often stor­my seas. But for tho­se who know more about it, it can be a dream of a life­time to sail the­re in the wake of Scott, Amund­sen and Shack­le­ton (who was the­re befo­re he famous Endu­ran­ce-expe­di­ti­on).

“Begin­ners” do not need to read any fur­ther, but “advan­ced lear­ners” who can make such a voya­ge on rela­tively short noti­ce have now got an (almost) afford­a­ble oppor­tu­ni­ty to join an expe­di­ti­on to the Ross Sea with MV Orte­li­us, as the owner com­pa­ny Ocean­wi­de Expe­di­ti­ons is offe­ring attrac­ti­ve dis­counts for the voya­ge star­ting on Febru­a­ry, 18, from New Zea­land, and ter­mi­na­ting March, 20, in Ushua­ia (Argen­ti­na). For more infor­ma­ti­on, plea­se visit the web­site of Ocean­wi­de Expe­di­ti­ons.

Final remark: this page is not used for adver­ti­sing for any third par­ty, and the owner does not recei­ve any pay­ment (neit­her direct nor indi­rect) for pos­ting this note, but finds the voya­ge abso­lute­ly worth sprea­ding the word here.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
