Antarctica Tours

Long known as the last frontier on Earth, Antarctica has many titles to its name. It’s the driest, coldest and windiest continent, it has no native population, nor countries within it and it’s home to an astounding 90% of the world’s ice. Fascinatingly, its landscape is also dotted with dozens of volcanic peaks, some of which are still active. Antarctica is wilderness at its most raw and beautiful and today, it’s more accessible than ever.


Navigate the notorious Drake Passage, spot hundreds of penguins, and follow in the footsteps of the world’s great explorers, as you journey across sprawling glaciers and ice sheets. The great white continent is a land of wonder and sensational sights, unlike anywhere else on the planet. Click here to learn more about when is the best time to visit Antarctica.
