Antarctica Expedition Cruises

Journeys to the White Continent

Expedition cruise holidays in Antarctica


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. And, with some of the world's leading expedition cruise lines, including Seabourn and Silversea, now visiting this ice-bound frontier, you can now explore it all in luxurious comfort.

Spot rare wildlife and thousands-strong bird colonies in the Sub-Antarctic islands and South Georgia, before making landfall on the ice and rock of Antarctica itself. Here, in the shadow of colossal icebergs and vast mountain ranges, you'll have the chance to come face to face with penguins, seals and sea lions as whales and dolphins play in the ocean swells.

It's a truly incredible experience, made all the more memorable by the expert naturalist guides and historians who accompany sailings to these wild remotes. Take the chance to venture onto the frigid waters on kayak and RIB boat excursions, and head ashore for guided walks among the wildlife.

Remember, 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 offer.
