Storied and sought for centuries, the great White Continent beckons intrepid modern-day explorers from all over the world. Experience incredible wildlife, stunning scenery and gigantic icebergs on this one-of-a-kind voyage to the Antarctic Peninsula in the peak of the southern summer!

Join us onboard our purpose-built, ice-class expedition vessels, to experience the majesty and wonder of Earth's last frontier up close and personal. Our state-of-the-art vessels enable us to get closer to nature, with a fleet of Zodiac landing craft, a team of experienced expedition guides, and the Antarctic Peninsula as our spectacular destination. 

Departing Argentina's southernmost city of Ushuaia, we cross the mighty Drake Passage en-route to the South Shetland Islands. The unique X-Bow design of our expedition vessels offers exceptional stability at sea, giving you a smoother ride across some of Earth's most challenging waters. 

This voyage departs at the peak of the brief southern summer, arriving in Antarctica while wildlife activity is at its peak. Expect to see adorable freshly hatched penguin chicks being carefully guarded by a parent, while hundreds of other penguins come and go with bellyfuls of food for their offspring. Watch these fascinating birds vigorously defend their territiories, while keeping watch for predatory skuas overhead. Meanwhile in the frigid yet productive sea, humpback whales feast on the bountiful summer krill, gorging after their long migration southward, while orca patrol the waters on their never-ending hunt for prey. 

Our first desintation is the South Shetland Islands, a rugged chain of spectacular wildlife-rich islands off the northernmost tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. From here we will delve deeper into the inlets and bays of the Antarctic Peninsula, entering the famous Gerlache Strait, where glittering ice cliffs and precipitous peaks rise straight out of the icy water. Icebergs, glaciers, mountains and rugged snowfields characterise this wildly beautiful alien landscape. While wind, sea and ice conditions will dictate the exact locations we will visit, we will make Zodiac landings to allow guests to set foot on land and experience penguin rookeries, spectacular landscapes and historical sites, and aim to Zodiac cruise in breathtaking areas filled with giant icebergs, whales and seals. While wildlife sighting are of course subject to the whims of Mother Nature, a variety of penguin, we always aim to show our guests the best of the White Continent. Jaw-dropping scenery and landscapes are guaranteed! 

Any voyage to Antarctica is an adventure, but with an average occupancy of 175 guests aboard our vessels, our cruises offer a unique experience for the brave few. Experience with us!
