Visit Antarctica and enjoy tours among dramatic icebergs and wildlife on our adventure cruises to the south pole.
The serenity and peace of holidays to Antarctica is broken only by the sights and sounds of fantastic wildlife, from penguins to whales and more.
Antarctica is one of the most beautiful and unexplored places on our planet.
The austral summer (November-March), sees the sea ice retreat and allows you to explore this frozen land from selected cruise boats.
For more than two centuries, this white continent in the southern hemisphere has attracted scientists and adventurer travellers with its unmatched natural beauty.
In December you can see massive, spectacular and photogenic icebergs in the water. Penguins also abound and are nesting their eggs.
In January there will be plenty of documentary type action as skuas circle above hatching penguin chicks, looking for a meal.
In February the mammals will be out in force – seals, orcas, humpback whales and minke whales are all spotted.
Every holiday to Antarctica is a dream come true for travellers.

The cruise was great - fantastic organisation, very professional staff and all very interesting. We can’t recommend the cruise highly enough but it was not full – about 90 on board out of a possible 120. We were tempted to go on to Antarctica!

Larry and Gillian are coming to the end of their month of travelling with Andean Trails in Patagonia. We put together a tour designed to take them off-the-beaten-track – read the first instalment in their blog – covering Santiago and Aysen and remote border crossings. Once in Argentina, Gillian and Larry trekked to the base of Fitzroy and Cerro Torre, and took a day tour to Perito Moreno. They then set off for Torres del Paine on a self-guided trek. Their tour has ended with a few days in Ushuaia and a flight out from Buenos Aires. Check their progress below …
