Antarctic Expeditions: Cruises, excursions and travel
Browse the extensive collection of Antarctica cruises available here at Expeditions Online. Visit the most awe-inspiring travel destination on the planet and have the adventure of a lifetime! Our expedition cruises to Antarctica are ecotourism at its best: witness wildlife, wilderness, and untouched beauty on an immense scale. Learn from onboard polar experts and experience the sense of adventure you get from exploring planet Earth's last true wilderness. However, if you're looking for something in the Northern Hemisphere and you're more impressed by polar bears and reindeer, then you may be more interested in our Arctic cruises; but if penguins, immense icy landscapes, and leopard seals are more your style, then an Antarctic cruise is exactly what you're looking for!
Most cruises to Antarctica sail from Argentina or Chile to the Antarctic Peninsula. Some slightly longer cruises sail south of the Polar Circle or into the Weddell Sea. For a complete Antarctic experience (and lots of penguins!) take a look at the cruises in South Georgia and the Falklands. If you want to save time and a rough sea passage, there are also air-cruises that fly to Antarctica. Epic voyages from Australia or New Zealand visit Antarctica's Ross Sea and East Antarctica region — where you'll find huge mountains, vast icebergs, and amazing wildlife while following in the footsteps of many of history's pioneering explorers.
So, you have been dreaming of going on holiday in Antarctica for a while now and are ready to book your trip?
Our guides have prepared a list of activities you will be able to enjoy during your expedition, as well as some tips to help you pack for your Antarctic cruise. Wildlife is very diverse in Antarctica and if you’re lucky, you will get to see some of the amazing wildlife that inhabits this beautiful part of the world, such as Leopard Seals, King Penguins, and even Blue Whales!
This is not an exhaustive list, so have a read of our top 10 animals you can see in Antarctica blog to find out more about the incredible animals you will see during your trip.
