Antarctica Cruises

Nothing can prepare you for the feeling of stepping on the ice for the first time. Hearing the crunch underfoot and feeling the timelessness of this remarkable white continent. Your trip to Antarctica begins here.

Gaze into the iridescent blue heart of an iceberg. Feel the thrill of a leopard seal turning to meet your gaze. Sit quietly on a beach and be entranced by a chorus of penguin calls as they waddle from nest to shore. Your Antarctic cruise is no longer a dream, but a vibrant experience you’ll treasure forever. 

Embark on a small ship expedition cruise with a friendly group of like-minded travellers. We believe that expedition cruising is about true adventure and camaraderie, and with an average of 126 passengers across our voyages, ours are some of the smallest Antarctic expedition cruises you’ll find.

Your Antarctic adventure begins in the delightful port town of Ushuaia or Punta Arenas*. Transit through the vibrant South American hubs of Santiago or Buenos Aires and enjoy the delicious local cuisine and culture before joining your expedition team and embarking on your Antarctic cruise of a lifetime.

*Departure port varies depending on whether you choose to sail, fly/sail or fly/fly to the Antarctic Peninsula. Take a look at our itineraries below to find out more.
