Antarctica is a land of raw and exquisite frozen seascapes – the natural world in its most natural state. Expeditions to this austral hinterland instill a genuine sense of awe, adventure and exploration – and indeed of privilege. While some guests simply want to enjoy the awesome scale and tranquility from the warmth and comfort of their boat, others want to experience firsthand the fury of the great wilderness.
Kayak around icebergs the size of small towns listening to the sounds of seals, trek shores populated by thousands of penguins, ski the Antarctic Peninsula and explore the many islands, bays and otherwise-inaccessible channels by small Zodiac. Take the polar plunge at Deception Island, which is the caldera of a still-active volcano. And for those up to the challenge, we organise intense five-day overland expeditions which trace the route of the legendary 20th Century explorer Ernest Shackleton.
