Solar Eclipse in Antarctica – Book now and save 10%

Departs 24 November, 2021 | 22 days

A total solar eclipse occurs only every 1-2 years, and to witness it in Antarctica is without doubt a rare
occurrence. Perched in a favourable position, and with clear skies and good weather conditions, you will witness the full solar eclipse, which will only be visible from Antarctica. Taking place in the early hours of December 4, 2021, (approximately 07:34) the Greg Mortimer will be in prime viewing position in the Weddell Sea to see the moon transition in front of the sun, shrouding the white Antarctic wilderness in a surreal darkness.
