After a four-day voyage through the Strait of Magellan, the Beagle Channel and the most turbulent waters on earth - the Drake Passage, Bulgaria's polar explorers will reach Livingston Island, where they will prepare the Bulgarian Antarctic base "Saint Kliment Ohridski" for the new Antarctic season.
