Set off on an expedition inspired by renowned polar explorers leading to the Great White Continent.

Cruise by glittering icebergs as you make your way to the shorelines of Antarctica, offering some of the world’s best whale viewing, seal gazing and penguin watching, all against a spectacular backdrop of ocean and ice. This mountainous southern land even has its own modest history, with British outposts – The Falkland Islands and South Georgia – exuding warmth from their pubs and old-world hospitality.

Highlights of the Antarctic

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.

View trip

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.

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.

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.

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 onboard 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. 

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 underdstanding of wildlife, and to give them an experience that will last in their memories for a lifetime"

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."

Wayne – Expedition guide

"The most important piece of advice I can give is to come here with an open mind and open heart. Take the whole experience in, from the vast landscapes, to the glaciers and the incredible wildlife that lives here." 

Activities
