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 🙂
