Solar Eclipse Antarctica 2021

Witness the 2021 total solar ecplise in Antarctica on board an expedition ship.

Solar Eclipse Antarctica December 2021

Join a once in a lifetime journey to witness a total solar eclipse in Antarctica. The solar ecplise will be visible on Saturday the 4th of December 2021 from the ocean in between the South Orkney Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. There you can only witness this solar eclipse if you’re on an expedition ship near Antarctica on the edge of the Weddell Sea.


Around day 12 of your expedition cruise the captain will head for the exact location where the total solar eclipse will occur. This will likely be on the edge of the pack ice in the Weddell Sea, a magnificent location. In the early morning everyone will gather on deck, hopefully under a clear sky, to view this special solar eclipse.


Depending on which expedition cruise you take the voyage will either continue south towards the Antarctic Peninsula, or North to South Georgia.

Please note this is a sample itinerary. The route of your voyage depends on which expedition cruise you choose.
We do our utmost to guarantee the best experiences, however we have no control over the weather and the wildlife behaviour. Ports of embarkation and disembarkation and excursion sites may change depending on sea-, weather- and ice conditions.

  • Embark in Ushuaia

    All solar eclipse exepdition cruises depart from Ushuaia. From there they either sail northeast toward the Falkland Islands followed by South Georgia and then South towards Antarctica. Or the other way around, departing southbound to the Antarctic Peninsula and then followed by South Georgia and the Falkland Islands.

  • Antarctic Peninsula

    We will continue the journey to the Antarctic Peninsula. The landscape here is impressive, consisting of bays and narrow canals surrounded by snowy mountain peaks and giant glaciers. Huge icebergs slowly drift past and provide a resting place for seals. The sea here is rich in krill and is home to various species of whales. We will go out in zodiacs to look for penguins colonies that live in various places and make their nests on sheltered beaches.

  • Solar Eclipse

    As we approach the day of the solar eclipse we cross the Scotia Sea towards the ideal location for observing this natural phenomenon. The captain will position the ship exactly in the shadow of the moon so that you will see the total eclipse of the sun. This location will probably be close to the Weddell Sea's pack ice, which makes this experience even more special.
    Please note we are dependent on clear skies and calm weather to observe the solar eclipse.

  • Falkland Islands & South Georgia

    On this solar eclipse expedition you will visit some of the most admirable places in the Antarctic polar region. You will make landings on the Falkland Islands, which are rich in animal life and culture, a paradise for photographers with many species of exotic birds. Another highlight of this voyage is South Georgia, a rugged island bustling with wildlife. Here you'll find huge numbers of penguins, fur seals and giant albatrosses all living in a breathtaking landscape of fjords, glaciers and snowy mountains.
