Antarctica

Antarctica is one of the last untouched destinations in the world where you can see remarkable wildlife, such as penguins, seals, whales and orcas, up-close and in abundance amidst pristine, awe-inspiring scenery with only a minimal human footprint.

The Antarctic Circle is full of extremes being the coldest, driest, highest and windiest place on Earth. For this reason, it was, until recently, the stomping ground for nobody but the hardiest of Polar Explorers – legends such as Scott, Amundsen and Shackleton, who continue to capture the imagination with their tales of endurance and resourcefulness, in the face of appalling conditions.

Only discovered in the 19th Century, Antarctica still has no permanent residents, but there are now an excellent range of options for Antarctic travel, with expedition cruises departing from southern Argentina or Australia. Or for those on a tight schedule, there are now flights to and from King George Island, where an Antarctic fly cruise can be boarded without the need to sail the Drake Passage.

A trip to Antarctica is undoubtedly a highlight in any traveller’s log book.

See below our suggested itineraries designed by our specialist team.  Choose one of these or contact us to discuss your polar expedition.

Reviews

"The most amazingly, awesome trip we have ever made! we loved every minute of it. Our ship the Ushuaia was perfect (crew were outstanding, food was fabulous and the other passengers all out for real adventure and great fun)! We had many opportunities to climb mountains, explore waterways, see the wildlife (under strict supervision), attended lectures and movies of the region and had lots of fun evenings with the crew and passengers."  Maria

The Shackleton Discovery with Andrew Denton was up there with the best trips I have EVER been on. Chimu's organisation of the trip was second to none, and the crew on the Sea Adventurer were exceptional. I will be back, and I will be with Chimu of course! - Paul.P

 "This trip was the highlight of any travels I've been on so far with the spectacular scenery and wildlife.  Enjoyed camping on the ice and dozing amongst the sound of penguins and whales spouting in the bay.  The kayaking added to the experience letting us get up close to the wildlife with seals swimming between us and whales close by.  Experience of a lifetime and one I will never forget.  The ship 'Expedition' was great on all levels so much more than I had ever anticipated with 5-star service for everything." Sandra

"The best place in the world. My second trip."  Andrew and Carol

"Brilliant adventure - trip of a lifetime" Phoebe

Antarctica - Fantastic trip of a lifetime, everything was perfect and lived up to expectations. Highlight was a Humpback whale diving by our zodiacs: Stephen

Fantastic trip of a lifetime, everything was perfect and lived up to expectations. Highlight was a Humpback whale diving by our zodiacs. Excursions on the zodiacs to islands to see the penquins, icebergs and seals up close and personal! Stephen and Doris.

Antarctica - Magnificent world of nature, zodiac tours the best: Sandra

We enjoyed everywhere we went but the Antarctic Peninsular was a highlight. We were very impressed with the way all our transfers to and from hotels were arranged so well and the hotels we stayed in were of a good standard:  William and Patricia

Just thought I would catch up following our amazing holiday to Antarctica. Thank you so much for organising everything, including the renewal of our wedding vows which turned  into a big event: Susan Grasby
