Journey to Antarctica

ONE OF THE LAST WILD FRONTIERS ON EARTH

Antarctica stands as a quintessential bucket list destination. Visiting is a privilege that few get to experience and its remoteness and the logistical challenges involved in reaching the continent make it a rare destination. This exclusivity enhances its appeal, offering travellers the chance to join a privileged group of explorers who have ventured to the end of the Earth. Pristine and untouched wilderness, unmatched wildlife encounters, spectacular scenery, scientific significance, rarity and exclusivity... This is the promise of Antarctica!

The Antarctic ecosystem supports a fascinating array of wildlife, adapted to thrive in the extreme conditions. Visitors can witness vast colonies of penguins, such as Emperor, engaging in their unique social behaviours. Seals, including Weddell and Leopard, bask on ice floes, while whales, like Humpbacks and Orcas, gracefully navigate the icy waters. These encounters offer rare, up-close views of species that are seldom seen elsewhere.

For those seeking adventure, Antarctica offers a multitude of thrilling activities. Kayaking among icebergs, hiking across glaciers, and embarking on Zodiac boat excursions provide exhilarating ways to explore this frozen paradise. The challenge of the journey itself, including the crossing of the notorious Drake Passage, adds to the sense of accomplishment and adventure.

Our Favourites

LOCAL EXPERIENCES WE LOVE

Lemaire Channel, often referred to as the "Kodak Gap" for its dramatic and photogenic scenery, the Lemaire Channel is a narrow passage flanked by towering cliffs and majestic glaciers. The still waters mirror the stunning surroundings, creating perfect reflections. Sailing through the Lemaire Channel is an unforgettable experience. Paradise Bay, true to its name, offers some of the most stunning landscapes in Antarctica. This deep fjord, surrounded by dramatic mountains and glaciers, is a haven for icebergs of all shapes and sizes. Zodiac cruises and kayak excursions allow close-up views of the ice formations.
