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.

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.

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.
