Explore the place that feels like another planet on our classic Antarctica voyages

There aren’t too many places left on Earth like this. Once you’ve seen a calving glacier, a King penguin up close, or a humpback whale rearing from the ocean like some great unfathomable beast from the television screens of your youth, needless to say you come away from it humbled. Whether it’s the wildlife wonderland of the Subantarctic Islands or the great continental ice cap down south, this region has something nowhere else has. Antarctica is real, and it’s waiting for you.

Highlights of Antarctica

Take your first steps on Antarctica

Antarctica is so far removed from most people’s reality that it may as well be on a different planet. While it’s a mesmerising travel destination, it is also an interactive experience for travellers. Step from a Zodiac onto land and into the world of bustling penguins.

Kayak around the White Continent

Glide across glass-like water with nothing to disturb you but the pull of your paddle and the anticipation of your next wildlife encounter. All equipment is provided and the excursion is led with an experienced cold-water guide. Some kayaking experience is essential for this optional activity.

Meet penguins on Deception Island

Deception Island, a haunting environment set on a sunken volcano, is the prime place to encounter gentoo, chinstrap and Adelie penguins. While the port has a dark history as a former whaling station, these days it’s used as a scientific outpost and the launching point for expeditions.

Witness the wildlife of South Georgia and the Falklands

Savour wildlife encounters while exploring the islands dubbed the “Galapagos of the South”. Venture to the site of black-brown albatross colonies and the breeding grounds for thousands of king penguins. Visit the old whaling settlement of Gritviken and follow in the footsteps of the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.
