The seventh and final continent, Antarctica is a land of raw and exquisite frozen seascapes – the natural world in its most natural state.

Expeditions to this austral hinterland instil a genuine sense of adventure and exploration – and indeed of privilege, with few people ever experiencing the awesome scale, tranquillity and fury of the great wilderness.

The ecosystem of the South Pole and those of its neighbouring islands are among the most diverse on the planet, inhabited by penguins, seals, whales and a huge variety of birdlife.

Expeditions last anything from five days to a month and can include landings at South Shetland, The Falkland Islands (Las Malvinas) and South Georgia – the Galapagos of the Poles. We have selected the best boats to carry our guests, from luxury Russian icebreakers to state-of-the-art expedition ships. Each carries a diverse team of top naturalists and historians.

Kayak around icebergs the size of small towns, walk shores populated by thousands of penguins, ski the Antarctic Peninsula and explore the many islands, bays and channels by Zodiac. And for those up to the challenge, we organise five-day overland expeditions which trace the route of the legendary 20th Century explorer Ernest Shackleton.
