Antarctica is the last wilderness, an untamed and uninhabited continent that promises to dazzle even the most world weary traveller with its stunning glacial landscapes, unique and prolific wildlife and the feeling that comes from experiencing nature at its most extreme. Stepping foot on the Antarctic Peninsula for the first time is an incredible experience and one that we recommend for everyone.
Most of our expeditions start and end in Ushuaia, Argentina, although there are also options that involve either one way or roundtrip flights from King George Island, cutting out the infamous crossing of the Drake Passage. For those who set out from Tierra del Fuego, the Drake Passage crossing is punctuated with sightings of albatross, sea petrels and cormorants along the way. Zodiacs (rubber boats) on board each ship make it possible to access the shores and walk upon the spectacular Antarctic continent. More adventurous passengers may like to try sea-kayaking, mountaineering or cross-country skiing. And for the truly daring- an Antarctic plunge!
Antarctic expeditions range from 8 day fly in/ fly out trips, to full on 20 day expeditions of the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctic Peninsula. If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, contact us for more options!
