Make the most of Antarctica. Cruise one way, fly the other, so there in more time to spend exploring. In this frozen region of extraordinary beauty, powerful orcas and leopard seals patrol the waters, while ethereal snow petrels grace the skies against a backdrop of bristling mountain ranges and surreal icebergs. Taking in the Drake Passage, the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula we thread our way on our Antarctic cruise through an intricate system of icy waterways, as we explore the white continent. Cruising by zodiac will allow you to touch down on the ice and experience the natural inhabitants up close, when we visit penguin colonies, research stations and other beautiful landing sites.
Our Antarctica cruise ship is warm and comfortable and our expert crew of naturalists and historians will entertain you with amazing lectures that compliment your Antarctica tour. Your vessel is designed with a special X-BOW that will cut through the swell and make a quicker passage through the waves. There are plenty of activities to keep all the long hours of daylight full! Landing and walks ashore, zodiac cruising around the icy landscapes, bird watching, whale and mammal spotting, photography opportunities...and even time for a quick dip in the polar waters! Or add on an extra activity, there is kayaking or even snorkelling in Antarctica!
Give something new a go! An Antarctic cruise like this is a trip of a lifetime.
