Antarctica & Arctic Wildlife Holidays

Introduction

Remote and hard to get to, Antarctica has a selection of superb wildlife watching opportunities that can be enjoyed on an adventure cruise, using small vessels and expedition style ships, teamed with excursions onto the ice.

Marine wildlife such as penguins, seals and whales are the most obvious draw, with the option to get close to these creatures on the ice or in inflatable craft. Minke whales, sei whales, fin whales, humpback whales, southern bottlenose whales and orca can all be spotted in the course of a cruise. Other highlights include birds such as albatross, fulmar, petrel and shearwater.

These are just a handful of the options available though. You can also tailor-make your wildlife holiday in Antarctica by adding a city stay or activity and adventure holdiay to your itinerary; talk to a destination specialist to see what we can do for you.
