The seventh continent and a true destination of a lifetime, Antarctica overflows with endemic wildlife, dramatic icebergs, and jaw-dropping landscapes. Thanks to its geographic proximity to South America, we love to pair almost any of our trips south of the equator with a journey to the end of the earth! And now for time-crunched travelers, an easy flight from Punta Arenas in Chile to the South Shetland Islands offers a way to skip sailing the often-turbulent Drake Passage, so you can maximize your time on the ice.
Whether you hope to visit the South Georgia Islands, the Falklands, or the Antarctic Peninsula, we have a way to get you there with one of our luxury vessels. Once you’ve arrived, wildlife-lovers will rejoice with the plethora of animals that call this unique landscape home. Elephant seals, fur seals, numerous kinds of penguins and birds, orcas, and even humpback whales are all commonly spotted in a single day. Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring landscape with guided hikes, kayak between icebergs, and for the especially daring leap straight into the frigid waters to knock a polar plunge off your bucket list!
