Antarctica Cruises


Antarctica cruises have grown in popularity in recent years and there are now more voyages to the region than ever before. For many, this type of cruise holiday will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so it is important to choose the right cruise line and ship – that’s where we can help.

You will join your chosen ship in Argentina, South America, before crossing the Drake Passage to Antarctica for some of the world’s most exciting scenery. Here, you will observe rolling white plains and majestic mountains of ice as you are transported through the region’s freezing waters. It really is a fascinating experience and one must have the camera ready at all times.

Arguably the biggest thrill for visitors to the Southern Pole is the amazing variety of wildlife. Make the most of your expedition by learning about what the environment around you is home to, from a lecture given by an Antarctica expert onboard. With this new knowledge, a whale-spotting adventure is a necessity and you’ll soon be able to recognise an Emperor Penguin from a King Penguin.

Places of exploration in Antarctica often include: Neko, Pleneau Island, Port Lockroy, Deception Island and The Weddell Sea. Areas do vary per cruise line, however.

Cruise lines that visit Antarctica
