During the long days of Antarctica’s austral summer, you will enjoy superb observation and photographic opportunities of abundant seals, whales, and sea birds, including hillsides teeming with penguins. Admire blue Antarctic waters and the dramatic play of light on icebergs, glaciers, and towering mountains.
Enjoy the affable company and fascinating insights of AIA lecturer/host Jim Delgado, an expert in exploration history and marine archaeology.
While not usually considered an “archaeological” destination, the artifacts of Antarctic exploration are now over a century old and qualify as archaeological. Dr. Delgado’s lectures will address subjects such as the preservation of the huts and debris from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. He will be joined by other guest lecturers plus a seasoned team of expedition leaders and naturalists who will share their firsthand knowledge of Antarctica.
Under construction in Finland and launching in October 2021, Minerva is designed specifically for polar exploration. Enjoy the luxurious amenities of this new, state-of-the-art expedition ship with just 76 staterooms and suites for 152 guests. The ship’s size; limited guest capacity; superb accommodations and public spaces, facilities, and services; advanced technical and mechanical systems; and a complement of experienced officers and crew make Minerva the ship of choice for exploring Antarctica in safety and comfort. A fleet of Zodiac landing craft will bring you into
intimate contact with this incredible continent.
We hope you will join us on this once-in-a-lifetime travel adventure to the “White Continent.” This program is co-sponsored by other organizations, so I encourage you to contact AIA Tours today to reserve your preferred
