antarctica

Leave the rest of the world behind and travel to the most distant and extreme destination on the planet.

Untouched for millennia, tourism on the White Continent is steadily growing for those who want to witness nature in all its unsullied beauty, from vast open ice plains scoured clean by the katabatic winds to its bountiful marine life and towering icebergs. The only way to visit this incredible place is on an Antarctic cruise, and it’s no ordinary cruise. Most cruise ships to Antarctica are ex-scientific vessels that have been adapted to the luxury travel market so that when the ever changing weather closes in, you can enjoy its facilities, join a naturalist lecture or savour a hot drink in comfort. There are many amazing sights to behold in Antarctica: get up close to the huge penguin colonies that dot the shoreline along the Antarctic peninsula, behold majestic glaciers at Paradise Harbor, take in the spectacular mountain peaks towering above the Lemaire Channel, and in some cases, take to the water in a kayak trip to experience nature up close. Incredible, luminous and definitely unforgettable, Antarctica is like no other place you have or will ever visit, and we’ll deliver it to you with our expertise at the best cost.

things to do

  • Vast penguin colonies dot the shoreline along the Antarctic peninsula and South Georgia, with giant Orcas lurking beneath the waves.
  • The glaciers at Paradise Harbour are nothing short of spectacular, with dramatic ice cliffs dotted along the dramatic shoreline.
  • The Lemaire Channel is one of the most scenic areas in the continent, with its exceptionally calm waters earning it the title of “Kodak Gap”.
  • On Deception Island, powerful geological forces have created thermal pools that are perfect for a less cold dip in the ocean.
  • Nothing comes close to open air camping underneath the Antarctic stars in comfortable tents supervised by an experienced field guide.
