Antarctic semi-circumnavigation: Ross Sea expedition

It is more than 13 months ago that I have been to Antarctica. Time to get back, no doubt. Today (Friday, January 09) we are starting in Ushuaia with MV Ortelius. Tonight, we will get the two helicopters on board, and then we’ll cross the beloved Drake Passage, heading for the Antarctic Peninsula. But we want to get much, much further than that: Peter I Island, the Ross Sea and Campbell Island are on the wishlist for the next couple of weeks … advanced Antarctica, as one might be tempted to say.

Follow us on my regular blog on antarctic.eu – almost daily news from the very deep south. And keep your fingers crossed for good weather and ice conditions!

Treasured memories from the Ross Sea trip in early 2013: curious Emperor penguins in McMurdo Sound. See what the next weeks will bring 🙂
