Antarctic Peninsula

A cruise to the beautiful Antarctic Peninsula is the ideal introduction to Antarctica!

Take a cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula — the most northerly and accessible region of Antarctica. The Antarctic Peninsula stretches out, towards the tip of South America, making trips from Ushuaia one of the best ways to reach the southern continent. The towering spires of ice will take your breath away, as will the myriad icebergs, icy waterways, noisy penguin colonies, graceful seabirds, or the sight of whales breaching through polar waters. This is a land of superlatives unlike anywhere you’ve ever explored. If you’re interested in other Antarctic cruises, you may like to also check out our Falklands, South Georgia, and Antarctica cruises , as well as our South Pole Expeditions. Listed below, are expedition Antarctica cruises that include a visit to the Antarctic Peninsula. There are also longer cruises reaching further south past the Polar Circle, voyages to the eastern side of the Peninsula including the Weddell Sea and also Fly/Cruises available with flights across the Drake Passage, directly to Antarctica. Many expeditions to South Georgia also include the Peninsula, making for a more comprehensive expedition experience.

The Antarctic Peninsula is one of the most beautiful regions of the entire continent. A 10 to 12 day cruise from Ushuaia is often known as the 'Classic Route'.  Your cruise to Antarctica will reveal the most diverse mixture of wildlife. The scenery in this region is dramatic, filled with icebergs and of course, very photogenic. Animal lovers who take their holiday in the Antarctic Peninsula will be treated to a diverse list of wildlife that is especially suited to the climate. It is common to encounter several penguin species such as the Gentoo, Chinstrap and Adelie penguins. Other types of wildlife that can be spotted from an Antarctic cruise or an Antarctic Peninsula land expedition include the Weddell seal, the Antarctic shag and Snow petrels - not to mention encounters with whales.
