Antarctica Cruises

Antarctica’s great, white, icy expanse is the planet’s last true wilderness and is mesmerising in its dramatic beauty and wildlife. Since its first sighting in 1820, Antarctica has captured the imagination of the outside world and been immortalised by the feats of the legendary explorers Scott, Amundsen, Shackleton and Mawson. Today, its pristine isolation is matched only by the scale of its magnificent landscapes. Huge tabular icebergs carved from vast ice shelves choke the narrow channels against towering peaks and distant volcanoes. The freezing waters abound with whales, sea lions and orcas while the bays echo the shrill cries of penguins, albatross and petrels. For nature lovers, there is no place quite like it on Earth.

From South America, cruises set off from Ushuaia at the tip of Argentina to reach the Antarctic Peninsula, crossing the notorious waters of the Drake Passage. Fly cruises are also available from Punta Arenas in southern Chile and are perfect for those who struggle to find their sea legs. Longer cruises also take in the remote South Georgia and the Falklands, islands that teem with elephant seals and King penguins.
