Antarctica

Journey to Antarctica, an icy wonderland of dramatic icebergs, penguins, whales and expedition cruises.

Antarctica is one of the most beautiful and unexplored places on our planet. For more than two centuries, this white continent in the southern hemisphere has attracted scientists and adventurers with its unmatched natural beauty.

The austral summer, from November to March, sees the sea ice retreat and allows you to explore this frozen land. Unique wildlife, majestic icebergs and superb scenery await, and long daylight hours mean plenty of time for exploration.

Austral seasonal highlights

In December you can see massive icebergs in the water – for spectacular ice this is the time to go. Penguins also abound and are nesting their eggs.

In January, penguin chicks are hatching and there will be plenty of action, with skuas circling overhead waiting for the chance to swoop.

In February the mammals will be out in force – seals, orcas, humpback whales and minke whales abound.

The changing climate and the whims of stranded icebergs mean two voyages will never be alike. Please contact us for more information about Antarctica cruises.
