A frozen continent with no countries and no human population, those who dare to journey to the southernmost place on the planet on a luxury holiday in Antarctica will be rewarded with a profound experience – a special thrill that comes from exploring the world’s highest, driest, windiest, coldest and iciest destination. Nearly one-and-a-half times the size of the USA, the sheer size of Antarctica is almost incomprehensible with some icebergs as big as European countries.
A surreal land of white, blue and grey, there’s no place on Earth that compares to this magnificent untouched world. Thankfully, luxury travel to Antarctica is possible in the form of expedition ships, which not only take you to this epic frozen wilderness but can also pause at penguin colonies in South Georgia and pit you among some of the world’s leading marine biologists. On a luxury holiday to Antarctica, you’ll quite literally be tracing the wake of explorers like Shackleton and Scott. It’s the ultimate adventure.
On an adventure holiday to Antarctica, we’ll arrange for you to follow in the footsteps of famous explorers as you traverse this harsh and hostile desert; finding Shackleton’s hut built over a hundred years ago, that still stands frozen in time as a testament to their skill; trek through million-year ice; and kayak the chilling waters with vast whiteness as far as the eye can see. Whale watching on your bucket list? Orcas, humpbacks and blue whales can be spotted breaching the surface and jumping high into the air before crashing back into the ocean. One thing is clear, wildlife rules this barren land – home to seventeen species of penguins, witnessing them gather in their thousands is an awe-inspiring sight as well as finding mighty sea lions soaking up the sun on the sea ice as Mt Erebus dominates in the horizon.

'Once-in-a-lifetime journey' has become something of a travel cliche but when this Antarctica trip encompasses nine ports and four countries it feels entirely justified. Epic is another word that springs to mind, with Antarctica a pristine wilderness of untamed snow-white splendour. This is the seventh continent, Earth's final frontier.VIEW EXPERIENCE
