Antarctica Ross Sea Cruise Contest:
Ever wanted to visit the visually stunning and remote continent of Antarctica? Check this out! Until February 29 Oceanwide Expeditions is offering a unique chance to win a trip of a lifetime 30-day cruise to Antarctica (cruising the spectacular Ross Sea). This trip would be in 2017 from February 15th through March 17th. It would leave from Ushuaia (the southernmost city on the planet) and end in New Zealand.
Any trip to this little visited continent would be a memorable one, however this trip is extremely unique. Oceanwide Expeditions is the only company in the world to use this sailing route and part of this trip includes the use of helicopters for additional exploration.
This trip include visits to areas that see very few people including the The Ross Ice Shelf (the largest ice shelf on Antarctica) Dry Valleys (the world’s most extreme deserts), Borchgrevink’s hut (the first man made structure on Antarctica), the historic expedition huts of Shackleton and Scott and a visit via helicopter to Peter I Island, an uninhabited volcanic island.
