The Ross Sea became the starting point for expeditions to the South Pole. Shackleton’s hut at Cape Royds and Scott’s hut at Cape Evans have become two of its main attractions for visitors on the Ross Sea cruises.
Getting to one of the windiest places on Earth, where Antarctica is at it most raw, is no easy feat. Given the remoteness of these regions there are very few expeditions and access is normally from either Australia or New Zealand. For a true epic voyage you can travel down from Ushuaia on the tip of South America to the Antarctic Peninsula passing though both Bellingshausen’s and Amundsen’s sea before arriving into the Ross Sea and ending your voyage in New Zealand or vice versa.
