Antarctica & Arctic Exploration cruises

Exploration cruises in Antarctica

Introduction

Discover the Polar regions made famous by pioneers and explorers such as Mawson, Scott and Shackleton when you sail from a variety of southern ports to the white wilderness of Antarctica. Without the need to get as cold and frostbitten as these men did, you can now travel in comfort to this captivating destination.

Spot wildlife and birds in the Sub-Antarctic islands and South Georgia before making landfall on the ice of Antarctica itself for the chance to get close to penguins, seals and sea lions as well as visit historic sites such as Mawson's hut.

These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your Antarctica exploration cruise by adding a city stay before or after you sail; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
