Take the ultimate trip of a lifetime to explore the frozen expanse of the great white beyond

Few journeys can justify the tag of 'unforgettable' better than those to the coldest, driest, windiest and most remote and 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 not to mention 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 Patagonia and cross the infamous seas of the Drake Passage, keeping your eyes peeled for giant humpback whales, before reaching Antarctica and setting foot on the world's most mysterious, uncharted and genuinely unique frontier.

We invite you to browse our selection of Antarctica cruise holidays and vessels below.
