Swan Hellenic Presents Antarctica 2024-2025

Swan Hellenic has unveiled and opened bookings for Antarctica 2024-2025, a season of extraordinary cultural journeys ranging from 9 to 21 days exploring the White Continent aboard SH Diana and SH Vega.

The first departure is set for November 13, 2024, aboard SH Diana, with an exceptional 20-night expedition from Cape Town to Ushuaia, discovering Tristan Da Cunha, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula. The offering also includes a wide selection of expeditions of 9, 10, 11, 12, and 17 nights departing from Ushuaia. SH Diana’s season will conclude with a 21-night semi-circumnavigation at the end of February 2025, returning to Cape Town.

SH Vega, on the other hand, will commence its season with a 17-night journey along the eastern coast of Argentina from Buenos Aires to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula before crossing the famous Drake Passage and arriving in Ushuaia. SH Vega offers a diverse range of cultural expedition trips of 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13 nights, all departing from Ushuaia, during the austral summer of 2024 through March 2025.

Both ships will provide the opportunity to explore the Antarctic Peninsula from both sides, including the Weddell Sea, as well as the Falklands, South Georgia, and the South Sandwich and South Shetland Islands.

Swan Hellenic’s CEO, Andrea Zito, stated, “We are very proud of the depth and breadth of choice offered by Antarctica 2024-2025, the travel season designed by leading experts, to give our guests, as always with Swan Hellenic, the opportunity to have unique experiences in one of the last wild lands on Earth and one that, for this reason, changes lives.”

The ships stand out for their outward focus, with lounges offering expansive views, cabins and suites, nearly all with balconies, numerous observation points on the deck, including the distinctive platform called Swan’s Nest positioned above the bow.

Additionally, Citizen Science, a panoramic sauna, a state-of-the-art gym, top-notch beauty and wellness treatments, and excellent gourmet cuisine complete the extraordinary onboard offerings of Swan Hellenic ships.
