See the Solar Eclipse in AntarcticaAntarctica
A total solar eclipse only occurs every one to two years, and to witness it in Antarctica is without doubt a rare occurrence.
On this unique voyage with Aurora Expeditions, you will visit Antarctica and experience this incredible, isolated continent in late spring where you can photograph glistening icebergs, witness penguins nest building and whales feeding.
In South Georgia, encounter elephant seal beach masters guarding their harems, walk among some of the largest king penguin colonies on earth; and retrace Shackleton's epic crossing from King Haakon Bay to Stromness.
Perched on a favourable vantage point, the hope is for clear skies and good weather to witness the spectacular full solar eclipse, which is only visible from a small area on earth.
Those who are able to see the total eclipse are in the center of the moon’s shadow when it hits earth. A total solar eclipse is in itself spectacular, but to experience it in Antarctica is truly a once-in-a-lifetime, wondrous event.
