Almost 24 hours of sunlight during the summer months means that wildlife is kicked into action, making the most of the more favourable conditions. Watch playful gentoo, chinstrap and adelie penguins, fur seals basking in the sun and numerous species of whales frolic in the water. It’s also a bird- lover’s paradise with soaring albatrosses and petrels skimming the waves.
There are plenty of ways to get more active on our range of expedition cruises. Choose to camp under canvas and watch the stars shine brightly, or hop into a kayak to carve your own watery path through icebergs. Those with a head for heights can try mountaineering, or on selected cruises can fly high above the landscape in a helicopter.
All of our Antarctic cruises depart from either Chile or Argentina. If you would like to explore South America before or after your cruise, be sure to mention it to one of our Polar Specialists as they will be able to extend your trip through our sister company Latin Routes.
