Antarctica: Expedition cruising in Antarctica

Visit Us

Expedition cruising in Antarctica

Visiting the vast polar wilderness of Antarctica is the ultimate privilege. Following in the wake of explorers like Scott and Shackleton, whose names resonate with romance, triumph and tragedy, your expeditionary vessel will be dwarfed by yawning ice fields, jagged mountains and fathomless waters reflecting the ever-changing moods of the southern sky.

Antarctic travel may be easier and more comfortable than ever before, but it remains every bit an adventure. The thrill as you set sail from the tip of South America towards the planet’s frozen extreme is only the start of what must surely be the most extraordinary voyage modern travellers can experience.

Antarctica is accessible between October and March, when you can choose from an expanding variety of routes. Thankfully, such are the challenges of exploring Antarctica most expeditions barely scratch the surface of this pristine continent: where you go, when, and in what order is ultimately at the mercy of nature.

The on-board camaraderie among passengers and crew can be an especially memorable aspect of Antarctic travel. Whether it’s the euphoria of seeing a whale breach in iceberg-choked waters or the biting cold of a sudden blizzard – it’s all part of a shared adventure.

What our experts say

There's nothing like speaking to someone who has been there to get a real feel of what it is like to travel on an expeditionary ship on one of the various Antarctic cruise holidays we offer. I myself and a good dozen of our staff have taken complete cruises on a variety of craft and will be more than happy to inspire you with personal information and anecdotes.
