Antarctica

Discover the pristine beauty of Antarctica

Watch a mother penguin feed her chick. Hear the crash as a glacier calves into the sea. Paddle a kayak between icebergs. Marvel as a whale breaches next to your ship. Enjoy morning coffee on deck as you cruise past an iceberg. Absorb the history of the great explorers, one of which you have become.

The White Continent continues to fascinate, so follow in the footsteps of some of the great Antarctic explorers – Norwegian Roald Amundsen, British explorer Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton, and more recently, Americans Ann Bancroft and Will Steger. Your dream of this adventure will be fulfilled, just as theirs were.

From Dream to Reality

Unparalleled beauty.

From towering snow-capped mountains, glaciers and icebergs, to fjords, channels and the open sea, you are surrounded by stunning scenery and pristine landscapes.

Wildlife, wildlife, wildlife.

Penguins, penguins, penguins! There are eight species of penguins that call Antarctica home, as well as dolphins, seals, and whales, including Humpback, Minke, and Blue. Birds are abundant and include Albatross, Petrel, and Antarctic Tern. While you aren’t permitted to approach the wildlife, if you sit still and observe, you may have a close encounter of the nature kind.

From Science to History, and so much more.

While cruising and ashore, you’ll learn from experienced guides and special lecturers about topics including geology, history, wildlife, climate, the ocean, Antarctic ice, geography, and so much more.

Expedition-style comfort.

Although the ships must be built strong for the rough sea conditions they may encounter, comfort is a priority on board. Cabins are well-equipped, lounges and common areas are inviting, and the cuisine is hearty and tasty to nourish and sustain you for all your adventures.

This is Antarctica. Are you ready?
