Ross Sea: The ultimate Antarctic odyssey


10 thousand and one reasons why you should explore the Ross Sea

A landmark deal reached in Hobart on Friday means that the Ross Sea in Antarctica, one of the last unspoiled ocean wilderness areas on the planet, will become the world's largest protected marine park.

The Ross Sea covers more than 1.55 million square kilometres of ocean – an area nearly twice the size of NSW – and is home to unparalleled marine biodiversity and thriving communities of penguins, seals, whales, seabirds, and fish.

And with World Expeditions offering massive savings of up to US$10,000 on its Ross Sea Explorer voyages to the Polar continent, this landmark deal means there are now ten thousand and one reasons why you should explore the Ross Sea in 2017.

One of World Expedition's most adventurous Antarctic itineraries, the 32-day Ross Sea Explorer voyage is a true voyage of discovery. The Ross Sea Explorer voyage follows the paths of the early explorers, offering a rare insight into the history of Amundsen, Shackleton and Scott's expeditions as well as abundant wildlife encounters including the magnificent King penguin colonies. It is a complete Antarctic odyssey.
