Dear Adventurer

© Peter Harrison

Our Antarctic expedition is ideally timed during the height of the austral summer and presents an unparalleled opportunity to discover the multi-faceted treasures of the world’s southernmost realm. Weather and ice conditions will determine our path and landings, just as they governed the voyages of Antarctic explorers in the past. We take full advantage of our fleet of Zodiacs to reach remote shores and to cruise among stunning formations of grounded icebergs. The long daylight hours mean we can affect several landings a day. And, as always with Zegrahm, you’ll travel in the company of veteran leaders and renowned lecturers, who provide insight into the natural wonders and historic legacy along our route.

From Ushuaia we set sail for the beautiful Falkland Islands and their extensive populations of rockhopper, gentoo, and Magellanic penguins, as well as the regal black-browed albatross. We then cruise to South Georgia, made famous by explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. During our three days here we observe the largest concentration of wildlife anywhere in the world. Walk beaches covered with elephant and fur seals and watch penguins tending to their chicks. The rocky shores and pristine coves harbor thousands of king penguins, the second-largest and perhaps the most beautiful of all penguin species—a photographer’s dream. South Georgia is also home to gentoo, chinstrap, and macaroni penguins, and four types of albatross, including the majestic wandering albatross.

During five days of expeditionary landings on the Antarctic Peninsula and its adjoining islands we explore remote areas not possible on shorter visits. Here towering icebergs of all shapes and sizes; Weddell, leopard, and crabeater seals; Adelie and chinstrap penguins; and a bewitching landscape that defies imagination—create impressions that will last a lifetime.

For Antarctica history buffs, birders, photographers, and lovers of wilderness areas, this voyage should be one of life’s mandatory travel experiences. We hope you will join us.

Warmest regards,

experiences. We hope you will join us. Warmest regards, Peter Harrison & Shirley Metz Zegrahm Cofounders

Monday & Tuesday, January 31 & February 1

Cruising the South Scotia Sea

Our lecturers recap our experiences and prepare us for our visit to South Georgia. On deck, join naturalists in search of seabirds and marine mammals that flourish in these nutrient-rich waters.

Wednesday – Friday, February 2 – 4

South Georgia

Flexibility in this area is a must. Many of our leaders have been to South Georgia numerous times and, if the weather is in our favor, we may want to make a landing before breakfast or even after dinner. We call at some of the many islands, bays, and coves where we can see outstanding birdlife and elephant and fur seals close at hand. The following is a list of places we plan to visit on South Georgia. Some of them are pending final government approval.

Elsehul Bay – This beautiful bay is home to thousands of fur seals as well as macaroni penguins, the most numerous of all penguin species. Listen for the high-pitched trumpeting of king penguins amid the magnificent sounds of marine mammals that echo the bay.

Salisbury Plain – Two glaciers flank Salisbury Plain on South Georgia’s north coast.

WANDERING ALBATROSS

Here, more than 200,000 king penguins congregate and breed, and we are greeted by one of the more remarkable sights—and sounds—on Earth.

Stromness Bay – Site of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his party’s arrival after their harrowing crossing of the island’s glaciers on foot, Stromness offers views of cliffs and a glacier from which the adventurer and his companions descended.

Grytviken – We go ashore and explore here, discovering the old ruins of this once- active whaling station. The cemetery holds a special fascination, as it is here that Shackleton is buried. Walking along the coast, we spy seabirds, penguins, and marine mammals.

Gold Harbour – At the foot of the Bertrab Glacier, Gold Harbour is often referred to as the “jewel in the island’s crown.” In addition to a large king penguin colony, we are likely to see elephant and fur seals, gentoo penguins, giant petrels, and perhaps even some light-mantled albatross.

Saturday, February 5

South Scotia Sea

Our lecture series continues as we venture south. Naturalists recap our memorable visit to South Georgia and introduce us to the history, geology, and wildlife of the Antarctic Peninsula and its surrounding islands.

Sunday, February 6

South Orkney Islands

These mountainous islands were once known as “The Inaccessible Islands.” In winter a solid sheet of fast ice joins this island group to the Antarctic Peninsula, some 450 miles away. A scene of unparalleled beauty awaits, with penguins everywhere, including Adelie, chinstrap, gentoo, and the occasional macaroni penguin.

Monday, February 7

Elephant Island

This morning we arrive at Elephant Island, made famous by the Shackleton expedition. Awesome glaciers, speckled with pink algae, create a dramatic backdrop. Weather permit- ting, we enjoy a Zodiac cruise around the island and have an opportunity to view a thriving chinstrap penguin colony.

Tuesday – Saturday, February 8 – 12

Antarctic Peninsula

As we cruise the waters of the Antarctic Peninsula and its adjacent islands, our daily schedule of landings are dependent upon weather and ice conditions. There is the possibility that we may visit a research station and witness the scientific activities conducted by the multinational community of scientists working there. The expeditionary nature of our voyage precludes guaranteeing specific stops; in the past we have visited the locations

below. This list serves as a guideline only of the places you may experience.

Brown Bluff – Located on the Antarctic continent, the volcanic promontory of Brown Bluff rises 2,450 feet above an ash beach littered with huge and bizarrely shaped boulders. Some 20,000 pairs of Adelie, and hundreds of gentoo penguins, make their home here. Skuas and pintado petrels nest near the top of the cliff and kelp gulls fill the air with perpetual sound and motion.

Deception Island – As we approach

Deception through Neptune’s Bellows,

a channel just wide enough for our ship

to navigate, southern fulmars and pintado petrels soar overhead. Our anchorage is inside

a volcano whose collapsed cone was filled by rushing seawater.

Lemaire Channel and Pleneau

Island – Cruising the beautiful Lemaire Channel, we keep watch for the humpback and minke whales frequently spotted here. This narrow channel is one of the most visually impressive areas of the Antarctic Peninsula. Steep mountain peaks jut out of the sea on both sides, and the waters are often choked

with icebergs and frequented by crabeater seals.

A stunning labyrinth of grounded icebergs lies

in the shallow waters west of Pleneau Island, presenting a superb Zodiac cruising experience.

© Shirley Metz

HUmPBAcK WHALE

Crabeater and leopard seals haul out on the ice, and elephant seals and gentoo penguins occupy the island itself.

Petermann Island – Discovered by

a German expedition in 1873-74 and named

after geographer August Petermann, the island

is home to the world’s southernmost colony of

gentoo penguins. Snow-capped and small at just a mile long by half a mile wide, it offers close-up, picture-perfect scenes of penguins— both gentoo and Adelie—as well as skuas and blue-eyed shags.

Sunday & Monday, February 13 & 14

Drake Passage

During our Drake crossing, we have opportu- nities to see and photograph wandering and black-browed albatross, sooty shearwaters and white-chinned petrels. We keep a lookout for whales often seen in these waters.

Tuesday, February 15

Ushuaia, Argentina / Disembark / Buenos Aires

Disembark in Ushuaia and transfer to the airport for your flight to Buenos Aires, connecting with your independent overnight flight to the USA.

What to Expect

For most activities, a relatively moderate level of exertion is required. You will need to climb into and out of Zodiacs for excursions ashore. Ashore, you must be able to walk moderate distances, unaided, over rough terrain (rocky, uneven beaches in the sub-Antarctic islands, and occasional ice and snow on the Antarctic Peninsula.) Temperatures will range from 45º – 55º F in the sub-Antarctic region, and may get as cold as 30º – 40º F on the Antarctic Peninsula itself, although sunshine and low humidity will create a very temperate atmosphere. We will mail a complete list of recom- mended clothing and a suggested reading list to you approximately five months prior to departure. Participants will most enjoy the remarkable opportunities this expedition offers if they travel with a spirit of adventure.

Patagonia & Torres del Paine

Optional Pre-Voyage Extension | January 21 – 28, 2011

Encompassing 615,000 acres of expansive grasslands and the fantastic pinnacles of the Andean mountains, Torres del Paine National Park is a stunning UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and Chile’s premier Patagonian destination.

Here peaks of twisted, snow-dusted granite—endowed with waterfalls, emerald lakes, and verdant valleys—tower above the plains of Patagonia. During our three days in the park, accompanied by our leader, we take every opportunity to observe the unique flora and fauna of the region. Nearly 150 native animal species reside in the steppe and forested areas, including Patagonian foxes, vicuñas, and guanacos. And among the 100 species of local birds are the high-stepping lesser rheas, the New World’s largest bird, and the elegant Andean condors that soar high above the landscape.

In addition to our time in Torres del Paine, we enjoy a stay in the colorful village of El Calafate, our base for exploring Argentina’s Glacier National Park.

Please contact our office or visit our Web site for a detailed itinerary.

Extension Price: $3,380 per person, double occupancy; $980 single supplement.

Note: For terms and conditions, baggage restrictions, cancellation policies, and air fare, please refer to the main voyage.
