Classic Antarctica

from
$13,099

13th March to 23th March 2021 (11 Days)

Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Massive, magnificent, and unforgiving, Antarctica is a continent of superlatives that will leave your mind searching for words to describe it. Each day presents a new discovery, whether you’re cruising through ice-choked waterways, trekking through chattering penguin rookeries, or catching minkes and humpbacks breaching in the pristine waters. The few travellers who are fortunate enough to explore Antarctica’s vast expanses return home forever changed by an experience so awe-inspiring that it reaches to their very core.

The Antarctic Peninsula is anything but a world of white desolation. Join us on a true adventure to a world of immense scale and visual splendour. Passing huge icebergs in the flat calm of a polar morning will reshape the way you look at your world. Encounter huge whales, enormous rookeries of penguins, and stunning landscapes few have ever witnessed. This 11-day expedition will introduce you to the magic of the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.

All guests receive their own exclusive parka, included with their tour.  The high-performance parka is designed specifically for adventuring in the polar regions’ frozen climate, and combines functional cold-weather features like breathable waterproof fabric, a removable 5cm (2 in) ThinsulateTM liner, reflective taping by 3M, and a removable hood with microfleece lining.

Travel in a small ship

  • Our clients are allocated small ships for this journey, ensure that everyone is well taken care of with a high staff-to-client ratio.  In addition, travelling in smaller ships ensure smoother travel in the Antarctic terrain, and also more opportunities to go on land with a smaller group rotation.
