The Antarctic Peninsula is a legendary region in the world of polar travel, and this ten-day adventure showcases its very best. Trace the footsteps of the great explorers, crossing the Drake Passage to access this northernmost region of the legendary white continent. Spot penguins, seals and whales as they join you on your journey along the Antarctic coastline. Landing on the continent is the first of many thrills throughout the journey, and it only gets better from there, as one of the world’s most untouched, exotic and extreme environments reveals itself through one mind-blowing icescape after the next.
- The wildlife is simply amazing in this extreme part of the planet. Scan the seas for seals; look out for minke, humpback and orca whales; spot rare birds on the Beagle Channel; and witness gentoo, Adelie and chinstrap penguins on daily boat trips
- The terrain of Antarctica is like nowhere else on earth. Stepping across the plains, mountains and beaches of the white continent as icebergs calve dramatically into the ocean is an experience that’s hard to describe
- A polar plunge in Arctic waters could well be the most invigorating swims you will ever take. This is an ocean dip to write home about!
- Optional excursions give you the chance to see the peninsula from more than one angle. Explore by sea kayak, or take the adventure to the next level with some polar ice camping (this fills up quickly, so book early)
