Antarctica highlights

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.

View trip

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.

View trip

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.

Antarctica travel FAQs

There are no visa requirements for Antarctica, but visas may be required for Argentina and Chile which is where you’ll probably depart from.

The ship has a laundry service that you can use at an affordable price.

The Zodiac takes travelers on excursions from the ship to the shore. You’ll have the option of going out to research stations, penguin colonies and pebble beaches. You can also stay on the vessel if you don’t feel like going out that day.

Penguins are naturally curious and may come quite close to you. Approach them slowly by sitting or kneeling so that you appear less threatening but don’t get closer than 5 meters. Wait a few moments and you’re sure to get some fantastic shots.

Yes. All peregrine passengers are required to purchase travel insurance prior to their trip. Your insurance details will be recorded by your leader on the first day.
