COLD AND BEAUTIFUL




ADVENTUROUS travellers can join a cruise to Antarctica with a marine expert from Sydney's Taronga Zoo next year.

The 10-night expedition on the Akademik Sergey Vavilov departs from Ushuaia in Argentina next March. At this time of year penguin chicks are almost fully grown and there is great activity above and below the water. Travellers will visit penguin rookeries and crabeater, weddell and leopard seal colonies during shore excursions on Zodiacs and are likely to encounter humpback and minke whales.
