Early explorers didn’t have the luxury of booking their expeditions online.

These days it’s a bit easier: we run a variety of Antarctica tours between November and March each year, cruising in comfort on well-equipped polar vessels, offering three course meals, onboard ammenities, and expert leaders. But don’t be fooled: as adventures go, this is the big one. You’ll cross the infamous Drake Passage and set foot on the Antarctic Peninsula, explore ice-dotted bays by zodiac and get up close with gentoo penguins and migrating blue whales. Because you're travelling with Intrepid Travel, you'll experience this incredible part of the world in a way that builds human connection, supports local communities, and respects the environment. 'Antarctic tours' doesn't really do it justice. These are Antarctic adventures

Onboard experts

There's only so much you can read in a guidebook, especially when it comes to such rare and extraordinary locations. That's why we have a range of specialists on board Ocean Endeavour for every polar journey, from historians to marine biologists and hiking guides. With experts at hand, you can be assured that no question will be left unanswered. 

Todd the Quark leader

Todd - Naturalist

"I’m a firm believer in conservation and creating awareness through education and sharing our experience. I love sharing the polar regions with guests, connecting people to the environment and using my job as a platform to teach people."

Annie the Quark Leader

Annie - Marine biologist

"I love my job because everyday you don’t quite know what’s going to unfold. For me, a big part of it is about being able to educate and shift people's understanding of wildlife, and to give them an experience that will last in their memories for a lifetime"

John - Eclipse chaser

“I have been involved in the planning and escorting of groups to view solar eclipses since the early 1980s and am looking forward to travelling on the Antarctic Solar Eclipse Cruise.”

Intrepid is committed to travelling in a way that is respectful of local people, their culture, local economies and the environment.

How we're helping to protect Antarctica

Tourism in Antarctica is overseen by the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO). They work alongside the Antarctic treaty to register tour operators and maintain strict environmental standards and Intrepid are registered through our Antarctic partner, Chimu. We’ve always believed in the power of travel to educate and inspire people, so will continue to do everything we can to help preserve this environment for future generations.
