(Dec 6, 2011 – Jan 5, 2012) This 31-day adventure explores the rarely-visited Antarctic east coast, directly south of Australia. One hundred years ago this remote wilderness was first charted by Australia’s revered polar explorer, Sir Douglas Mawson, on the ill-fated 1911-14 Australasia Antarctic Expedition. In 2011 we celebrate both Mawson’s bravery and the final Antarctic journey of distinguished Russian icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov. Be part of this historic event!
