On Saturday, December 4, 2021, a total solar eclipse will run over the South Atlantic towards Antarctica. The Ocean Victory will be in place exactly at the center of the eclipse during this once-in-a-lifetime expedition cruise to South Georgia and Antarctica.

The eclipse begins early in the morning east of the Falkland Islands. From here the moon shadow speeds south at 10,000 km per hour towards the South Orkney Island and Antarctica. The expert team has selected the best possible observation position east of South Orkney, where the sun is 11 degrees above the horizon. This magical phenomenon will last for almost 2 minutes.

The solar eclipse is just one out of several highlights of this 15-day Antarctica cruise. From Ushuaia to the wildlife paradise of South Georgia. From here to the eclipse path and onwards to South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. You will outline the borders of the Weddell Sea, birthplace of the mighty Antarctic Sound, and cruise close to famous explorer, Shackleton’s harsh winter-camp on the shore of Elephant Island.

The Antarctic Peninsula are a nature photographer’s paradise, and your guides will attempt as many shore landings as possible per day, weather conditions permitting, bringing you close to Antarctica’s draw-dropping beauty. During your days at sea, enjoy a variety of onboard educational activities, from lectures to workshops, wildlife spotting and eclipse photography.
