Up-close encounters with Antarctica's incredible wildlife, from playful penguins to fur seals basking in the sun, magnificent whales frolicking in the water and soaring albatrosses and petrels skimming the waves, are experiences every bit as incredible as they sound. But it's not only wildlife that will be behind the memories you'll forever carry from this magnificent part of the world: camp under canvas and watch the stars shine more brightly than you can imagine, enjoy thrilling zodiac cruises through this icy wonderland, hop into a kayak to carve your own watery path through towering icebergs, and those feeling really adventurous can even try mountaineering. Selected cruises also offer the chance to climb aboard a helicopter and witness the breathtaking landscape and its many amazing inhabitants from the skies.
The classic Antarctica itinerary departs from Ushuaia, Argentina - commonly regarded as the southernmost city in the world - for the Antarctic Peninsula. But if you are after a more in-depth exploration, there are many options that also take in any number of the regions other highlights, including the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the Ross Sea, the Weddell Sea, the Antarctic Circle and the South Pole.
