Introduction

This is a unique experience that will take you to one of the most remote places on earth - the coldest, highest, windiest, driest, and most inhospitable continent - Antarctica.

Unlike most Antarctic cruises, Epic's offering flies over the Drake Passage, avoiding what can be an uncomfortable couple of days.

Aboard the expedition vessel, Ocean Nova, we will ply the waters of the Antarctic Peninsula for 5 nights/6 days.
