Experience the White Continent: A scientific expedition with Scenic and Cosmos

Visiting Antarctica is a journey into the heart of scientific exploration and environmental stewardship. But the continent’s importance as a place set aside for scientific study isn’t just about understanding the past and present; it’s also about shaping the future. Antarctica visitors have the privilege of connecting with this heritage, and of gaining a profound appreciation of the need to protect this extraordinary and fragile place.

Travelling aboard the magnificent Scenic Eclipse, Ian and Gail will cast off from Ushuaia, Argentina, for an unforgettable 11-day voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula. There’ll be a special emphasis on science for the voyage, and you’ll have the opportunity to participate in wildlife and other surveys, which Scenic Eclipse’s on-board 20-strong Discovery Team will co-ordinate, with Ian and Gail’s assistance.

The Discovery Team will also lead guests to continental landing sites and in the footsteps of renowned explorers. You’ll travel by Zodiac, kayak and stand-up paddleboard to experience the icy landscape and enjoy up-close encounters with Antarctic wildlife. If you’re game and want to take your Antarctic visit to the next level, Scenic Eclipse is equipped with two helicopters and a custom-built submersible, the Scenic Neptune.

Among other on-board experiences, you can join the lectures and education program run by the Discovery Team – with Ian and Gail as special guest presenters.

Scenic are also offering a $500 per person exclusive saving to Cosmos readers. Visit www.scenic.com.au/cosmos to learn more about the trip and secure the offer.
