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. Most cruises to Antarctica sail from Argentina to the Antarctic Peninsula, with the shortest trips visiting the western side of the Peninsula from 10-12 days, with slightly longer versions sailing south of the Polar Circle 66 degrees or into the Weddell Sea. If you want to save time and a rough sea passage, there are also air-cruises that fly from Chile to Antarctica, joining the ship there. For a complete Antarctic experience (and lots of different penguin species!) take a look at the cruises in South Georgia and the Falklands. 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.
