Spirit of Antarctica
Embrace the spirit of polar exploration on this classic expedition to the coveted white continent.
Sail across the famed Drake Passage, admiring spectacular seabirds and approaching the ice as the explorers of old did, by sea.
With a chance to Zodiac-cruise through pack ice, set foot on the continent, choose from a range of adventure options and even perhaps camp under pastel polar skies, this is the quintessential Antarctic voyage for adventure lovers.
Across the Antarctic Circle
Venturing below the Antarctic Circle is about more than just earning bragging rights. It is the chance to enter a different world more rarely seen, it feels more isolated and colder than further north, with great swathes of pack-ice and dreamlike icebergs.
Thread through pack ice and narrow channels where scenes of ice-clad mountains, feeding whales, and lively penguin colonies become lasting memories.
Early Antarctic explorers returned from their voyages to the deep south with tales of a magnificent, ice-covered land teeming with life.
Experience the awe-inspiring immensity of Antarctica and immerse yourself in the unimaginable beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula, where vast glaciers tumble into the sea, penguins are dwarfed by soaring peaks, and humpback and minke whales feast on abundant krill.
Reduce your time on the high seas by flying at least one way across the Drake Passage.
Famed for its tremendous tabular icebergs, year-round sea ice, fascinating fossils and the pivotal role it played in Shackleton’s Endurance expedition, the Weddell Sea offers unsurpassed opportunities for exploration.
Embark on a true Antarctic expedition as we not only explore the West Antarctic Peninsula, but also attempt to venture east towards the icy perimeter of the Weddell Sea, often guarded by impenetrable pack ice and home to awe-inspiring tabular icebergs.
Steeped in history, the Falklands~Malvinas is also a beacon for bird lovers.
Discover an incredible diversity of charismatic penguin species including king, macaroni, rockhopper, Magellanic and gentoo. Watch as black-browed albatross wheel overhead, with approximately 65% of their global population returning to the precipitous, craggy bluffs of the Falklands~Malvinas to breed.
In South Georgia, jagged peaks and glaciers create a breathtaking backdrop for beaches crowded with elephant and fur seals, and countless penguins.
