Antarctica map v2

Embarking on a journey to Antarctica with Viking is not just a trip; it's an expedition into the heart of nature's most untouched landscapes. This adventure offers a chance to experience the majesty of towering glaciers, expansive snow-covered terrains, colossal icebergs and an unparalleled opportunity for wildlife viewing, where the quiet of the ice fields meets the chorus of nature's most robust inhabitants. 
The ships themselves are marvels of modern engineering and design, crafted not just for luxury but with a keen eye on research and education. They serve as working research vessels, equipped with the most advanced learning venues at sea and a fully outfitted science laboratory. This commitment to discovery is further enhanced by the presence of leading expedition experts and distinguished scientists offering a hands-on experience that is exclusive to Viking. 

Viking redefines the concept of expedition cruising by offering an experience devoid of the usual distractions found on conventional cruise ships; no kids and no casinos. Instead, Viking introduces an industry first with The Hangar, an internal marina that allows guests to embark on Special Operations Boats in comfort, shielded from the Antarctic elements. This innovative feature ensures that every excursion begins with an ease and sophistication unmatched in the world of expedition cruising. 

Viking's Antarctic expedition provides more than just a journey; it presents a gateway to understanding the planet's most pristine wilderness. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, where luxury meets discovery in the heart of the Earth's final frontier.
