There is nothing so unpredictable as the untamed wilderness. Every journey to Antarctica becomes its own work of art, as unique and multifaceted as a snowflake. The seventh continent may be devoid of human cities, but hidden in the white mists and snowy reaches of the abyss is a brimming wonderland of life and sound. From the almighty crack of a glacier expanding in the water, to the chatter of penguins building their families on pebbled shores, the secret life of this seemingly barren place never fails to astound and inspire. Sail into the unknown and carve out an adventure that is yours alone on this expedition to Antarctica, where the only guarantee awaiting you each morning is the promise of something utterly unforgettable.
Degree of Difficulty –
• The land program is suggested, but for groups that want to do something different, we can customize as needed.
• The cruise itinerary is indicative for a program that visits the Antarctic peninsula only. In addition, we have longer programs that include the Falklands and Georgia Islands, or for those who do not wish to cross the Drake passage, we also have a program that arrives Antarctica by air and travelers are on the boat only in the Antarctic, avoiding the 2 days each way of crossing the Drake.
• Pricing is dependent on the actual departure date and group size. We generally get group discounts that we pass on to our travelers and negotiate each group separately. Contact us for further details.
• We work with Quark Expeditions on our Antarctic offerings, but if there’s another vessel you’re interested in, let us know.
