Ross Sea Region

Ross Sea Region

Discover the pristine Ross Sea Region of Antarctica, a remote and unspoiled part of the world’s oceans. Limited to a few hundred visitors each year, this region offers unparalleled opportunities to witness abundant wildlife, including Adélie and Emperor penguins, South Polar Skuas, Snow Petrels, Southern Fulmars, whales, and seals. With its rich waters and dramatic landscapes, the Ross Sea is best explored via small ship or expedition cruises, which provide access to historic huts from the heroic age of Antarctic exploration, such as Borchgrevink’s Hut, Shackleton’s Hut, and Scott’s Huts. Despite strong katabatic winds and challenging conditions, the summer months reveal a vibrant ecosystem, making it a once-in-a-lifetime destination for adventurous travellers. Wild Earth Travel offers expert guidance on choosing the perfect cruise, drawing from our team's extensive personal experiences.
