World Penguin day: head on a penguin safari with Quark Expeditions
Antarctica awaits, with its geographic contradictions, overwhelming enormity and adventure. Passengers on this expedition will enjoy the Argentinian capital’s heavily European-influenced heritage before being whisked away on a private charter flight to explore Ushuaia. At sea, guests will view massive albatross and pintado petrel as they swoop and soar around the ship. Beaches teeming with king penguins and elephant seals will greet guests on this fabled island, where they will pay their respects to famed explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. Guests will then relax on a Zodiac ride, hike glistening glaciers, share comical moments with inquisitive penguins, or witness the rugged peninsula from a sea kayak. Antarctica will surprise and delight, and never disappoint.
