Our experienced leaders have made hundreds of polar voyages. Learn about the history, geography and wildlife of the Antarctic from experts in the field, including naturalists and ornithologists who are always at the ready to answer questions.

Twice daily excursions

We run frequent excursions to get up-close to wildlife, allowing you to experience what it’s like exploring onshore. Each day includes two excursions with our leaders exploring the sea ice, ready to encounter any wildlife that may waiting. You’ll be given life vests and waterproof boots for each excursion.

Your home on the sea

We know you want to be as comfortable as possible while onboard, which is why we’ve chosen vessels equipped with modern conveniences like LED televisions and internet connectivity, along with luxurious touches that make each voyage a true pleasure. Each ship boasts onboard chefs to prepare a range of hearty, quality meals, and onboard experts to ensure you spend more time seeing the sights and less time thumbing through a guidebook.

Leave only footprints

‘Sustainable cruising’ might seem like a contradiction in terms, given the history of the big mega liners. But it’s a side of the industry we want to change. Voyages are carbon offset and we refrain from single-use plastics on board, recycle, cook with sustainable seafood, and use biodegradable cleaning products in bathrooms. It’s all part of our commitment to being a carbon neutral company and, since 2018, a certified B Corp (Benefits Corporation).

We also give back to the region by supporting such organisations as the Mawson’s Huts Foundation. Established in 1997, the foundation conserves the fragile and historic buildings at Cape Denison, Commonwealth Bay, East Antarctica, which were built and occupied by the legendary geologist and explorer Sir Douglas Mawson.

 

Highlights of Antarctica

Hikers at Danco Island in Antarctica

Take your first steps on Antarctica

It’s one thing to witness a calving glacier or a snow-capped Antarctic landscape, but setting foot on the Great White Continent itself is a thrill beyond words. Tick off one of the must-experience pinnacles of adventure travel as you interact with hordes of penguins on their own terrain.

View trip

Witness the wildlife of South Georgia and the Falkland Islands

Enjoy unrivalled wildlife experiences in the British territories of the South Atlantic. Home to hundreds of thousands of breeding pairs of king penguin, St Andrews Bay is South Georgia’s largest penguin rookery and a spectacle to behold; and the Falklands boasts the world’s largest black-browed albatross colony.

Uncover the unique history and geology of Deception Island

Deception Island, a haunting environment set on a sunken volcano (one of only two active volcanoes in Antarctica), 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.

Camp out on the White Continent

There are camping trips, then there are unforgettable camping trips. Step from a Zodiac onto the shore of Antarctica and spend a night among the snow-dusted peaks, immense glaciers and great expanses of contrasting ocean and ice. It is an optional activity not to be missed.

Discover Antarctica

There is more than one Antarctica. The Great White Continent is a diverse place that offers not only some of the world’s most extraordinary wildlife but also a great breadth of landscapes, geography and human history – even pub culture. Dive deeper and compare the Antarctic peninsula with the Subantarctic Islands. A greater understanding of these regions will help shape your journey and ensure you come away with a richer experience.
