Travel Beyond the Polar Circle with Andrew Daddo

Join Andrew Daddo, on a journey to the White Continent as he discovers, what he describes as, “a land beyond description”. Watch the below film to follow Andrew’s adventure through Antarctica with PONANT.

Filmed in early 2019, Andrew’s journey began in Ushuaia, Argentina, the world’s southernmost city and gateway to this polar wonderland. His two-week expedition with PONANT then took him to the Sub-Antarctic Falkland Islands and South Georgia, steeped in exploratory and whaling history, as well as being home to vast, mind-boggling breeding colonies of King Penguins, seals, sea lions, dolphins, and sea birds.

Then came the destination that looks like something out of an icy dream – the Antarctic Peninsula. With the flexibility of PONANT’s small ship Le Boréal, and expert captain and crew, the itinerary seeks out the best spots in line with the weather and accessibility. Immense icebergs that change their hue in the day’s shifting light, sparkling inlets with apt names such as ‘Paradise Bay’, never-ending expanses of white and all manner of penguins, seals and whales going about their daily life in the water and on the ice – all explored with an expert Expedition team aboard small Zodiac® boats to get up close and personal.

Follow in Andrew’s footsteps on your own Antarctic expedition of a lifetime.
