Take the ultimate expedition cruise of a lifetime to explore the frozen expanse, icescapes, penguins and wildlife of the great white continent.

Antarctica is the ultimate 'unforgettable' journey. The voyage of a lifetime to the coldest, driest, windiest and most remote, unspoilt place on earth. Antarctica is a land of multi-coloured ice caps, glistening glaciers and towering snow-capped mountains, who's very name conjures up thoughts of epic adventures and heroic discoveries. But thanks to a fleet of sophisticated, and comfortable, expedition cruise ships, you don't have to be a hardened explorer to get up close and personal with the icy terrain and playful penguins of the White Continent.

Depart from Tierra del Fuego in Argentina Patagonia and cross Drake Passage. The cruise ships constantly monitor the weather forecast to avoid intense storms and choose the best time to sail. The crossing takes three days each way, in which you can socialize with your fellow passengers, and watch the ocean from the comfort of the social areas of the ship. Keep your eyes peeled for giant humpback whales, before reaching Antarctica and setting foot on the world's most mysterious, uncharted and genuinely unique frontier.
