Antarctica Vacations

Antarctica is a feast for the senses: the cracking sound of calving glaciers, the bright sun glistening on spectacular icebergs adrift in the deep blue water, and the freshest air imaginable.

Cruises of Antarctica explore what many consider to be the final frontier on Earth, as it is untouched by civilization and remains in nature's purest form. Our Antarctica itineraries include the services of expedition leaders who are familiar with the continent's history and wildlife.

These adventures typically start with a day in Buenos Aires, Argentina. From there, you'll travel to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world and the starting point for cruises to Antarctica. Your expedition ship will sail through glacier-draped Beagle Channel and then Drake Passage. Guests go ashore in small, motorized Zodiacs. Expert lecturers in the fields of history, geology and marine biology often lead shore excursions.

Explore islands that are home to a fabulous assortment of wildlife -- penguins, seals, sea lions, petrels and albatrass. Other common stops include the Falkland Islands, a remote and beautiful archipelago with a temperate climate, diverse wildlife and friendly people of British descent; King George Island, home to elephant seals; and the South Shetland Islands, where thousands of chinstrap penguins nest.
