Experience the pinnacle of expedition travel – Antarctica. It’s a place of extremes, where wildlife and landscapes unfold like nowhere else in the world. The extraordinary islands around the Antarctic peninsula provide a stunning reward for those who conquer the Drake passage. Be among orca and humpback whales, hear cracking glaciers pierce the Antarctic silence, and experience, with all the senses, scenes that seem windows to another world. Regular excursions by Zodiac, plus a state-of-the-art ship with health and wellness facilities, ensure this 10-day Antarctic voyage will be a talking point with friends and family for years to come.

Why you'll love this trip
This is our classic Antarctica cruise, perfect for first-time explorers or seasoned adventurers, with several days to explore on the Great White Continent. For the extended 11-day version of this trip (with an extra day on the Antarctic Peninsula) see trip code PPDAE.
Enjoy the freedom to customise your trip with a wide range of optional activities. Choose to explore the water on a kayaking expedition, sign up for a photography masterclass, or camp out overnight like a true polar explorer.
Whereas most polar expeditions of this kind have a crew-to-passenger ratio of ten, 15 or 20 to one, Peregrine expeditions on the Ocean Endeavour have an expedition crew member for every eight passengers for a greater personal touch
Our experienced leaders have made hundreds of polar voyages. Learn about the history, geography and wildlife of the Antarctic from experts in marine biology, glaciology and history.
Rest assured you will leave only footprints behind. Your Antarctica expedition is carbon offset, and we serve only sustainably-sourced seafood, avoid single-use plastics and use biodegradable and phosphate-free cleaning products on board.
