Earth's final frontier, Antarctica is all-at-once ruthless, unforgiving and powerful, the scene of colossal ice shelves and haunting mountain ranges.  

Antarctica is undeniably one of the most spectacular regions in the world, its staggering remoteness and ethereal beauty making this the unlikely habitat of a myriad of wildlife. Here, Emperor penguins jostle for space alongside Southern elephant seals, whilst humpback whales feed in the nutrient-rich icy waters. With activities ranging from snowshoeing to sea kayaking, a visit to this extraordinary continent is not without its challenges, but the memories will be sure to last a lifetime.  

On our luxury Antarctica cruises, you’ll stay on some of the most exclusive ships in the world, with facilities including everything from luxurious spas to exquisite restaurants. Onboard expedition teams provide a fascinating insight into the history, wildlife, and glaciology of the region, whilst thrilling excursions allow you to experience the landscape first-hand. With flights from Punta Arenas in Chile and ship passages from Argentina's Ushuaia, an Antarctica holiday can be easily combined with either destination.  

Our Polar Regions specialists will tailor your Antarctica holiday to suit you, whether you’re looking for an enlightening family adventure or a memorable honeymoon amongst the region’s glaciers and icebergs. Our luxury cruises will not only take you to the remotest spots of the Antarctic Peninsula but can also include visits to the far-flung Falkland Islands and South Georgia.
