Explore our expedition voyages to the Antarctic region, all designed to engage your heart, mind, and spirit through the duration of the journey.

Antarctica is Earth's southernmost continent, lying entirely below 60° South. It is the highest, driest and coldest continent, a practically uninhabited, ice-covered landmass almost twice the size of Australia. 

The name "Antarctica" originates from the Latin/Greek-derived word "Antarcticus" - Opposite to the Bear (meaning the Arctic). 

Our expedition cruises to the last continent concentrate on the Antarctic Peninsula, the northernmost part of the continent which stretches toward South America, as well as voyages which include the wild Falkland Islands and the wildlife paradise of South Georgia. 

However you choose to experience Antarctica, experience with us!

Facts about Antarctica
  • Antarctica holds around 85% of the world’s fresh water. Around 14,000,000 km² - around 98% of the continent - is covered in ice up to 5km thick.
  • Antarctica was the last of Earth's continents to be discovered in 1820, although there have been many less-reliable claims of prior discovery. A continent often known as 'Terra Australis' had been theorized to exist at Earth's southernmost latitudes for millennia, unconfirmed until only around 200 years ago. .
  • Antarctica is fringed by ice shelves - floating glacial tongues extending hundreds of miles offshore. The largest of these is the Ross Sea ice shelf, covering more than 510,000 square kilometers; roughly the size of France!
  • Mount Erebus is the southernmost active volcano in the world, and the second-highest mountain in Antarctica. Despite the cold it has a lava lake in its inner summit crater.
