Antarctica Expeditions

antarcticaAntarctica’s wilderness is encircled by restless oceans, protected by ice and home to a magnificent array of wildlife. During it’s short productive summer penguins, seals, petrels, and whales arrive to feed and breed creating an explosion of activity.

Each expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia offers opportunities to visit historic huts, whaling sites, scientific bases and set foot on the Antarctic continent! Our team of Polar specialists enhances your experience with informative talks about natural history, wildlife, geology and exploration, whilst our fleet of Zodiacs carry you safely ashore for continental landings.

Whether you attempt to sail south of the Antarctic Circle, be awe by tabular icebergs in the Weddell Sea or trek across the interior of South Georgia, each itinerary allows us to make the most of our time and stop for any unexpected wildlife displays!
