Eight things you should do when visiting Antarctica

Get ‘Off the Beaten Track’
and
tick the boxes on your Antarctic bucket list

Our regular program of zodiac cruises, onshore walks and hikes, visits to wildlife colonies, historic sites and science bases offer the best of the Antarctic Peninsula with 12-nights onboard. At this time of year whales and seals arrive to start their annual feast on Antarctic krill and penguins arrive by the hundreds in rookeries to start rebuilding their nests.   Untouched wilderness at its finest.

Love outdoor activity? So do we. Only on this 12-night voyage can passengers participate in ski touring, expedition snowshoeing, sea kayaking with an overnight camping option and our field photography workshops.  This voyage is one of the first of the season, and is met with pristine conditions following the heavy snowfall of the Antarctic winter. This voyage combines an untouched Antarctica and plenty of options to enjoy an exciting range of outdoor pursuits.
