A cruise to Antarctica is a magical experience, 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 Adélie 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.
Our team of Antarctica specialists are on hand to help you find the perfect cruise for your requirements, taking into account when you want to travel, the wildlife you want to see and the type of ship you want to travel on.
The classic Antarctica itinerary departs from Ushuaia for the Antarctic Peninsula, but if you are after a more in-depth exploration, you can also visit any one of the following including the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the Ross Sea, the Weddell Sea, the Antarctic Circle and the South Pole.
