This vast uninhabited wilderness invites travellers to explore its unique untouched landscape.
The sheer size and scale of Antarctica will take your breath away. Few are lucky enough to travel to this remote wilderness, but those that do leave with a renewed appreciation for Mother Nature.
The easiest way to access Antarctica is by taking an expedition ship from Ushuaia, Argentina. It’s then a two-day sailing to reach the shores of the aptly named ‘White Continent’.
The summer season from November to March provides the best conditions to visit, wildlife is at its most active and the days are longest.
Antarctica covers an area of approximately 14 million square kilometres and 99% of it is covered by ice.
Antarctica is home to a rich population of wildlife including penguins, seals, orcas, albatross and humpback whale.
There are a number of itinerary options to choose from when planning your Antarctica adventure. Our experts will help tailor-make your perfect trip.
