Eclipse Antarctica 2021
In 2021 , the Total Solar Eclipse will be like no other – as it will only be seen over ANTARCTICA. What an amazing opportunity to combine this and fulfill an ultimate Bucket Wish List. Our cruising itinerary will include iconic sights and places – the Falkland Islands (Malvinas Islands), South Georgia, the Weddel Sea, Drake Passage and much, much more.
Our plans for Eclipse Day – December 4th 2021 are to be in the Pack Ice of the Weddell Sea.
We will position the ship in the center of the Moon shadow, if possible some way into the drift ice of the Scotia Sea. The ice edge can be expected at about 60°S, 41°W.
