Antarctica is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Its gigantic icebergs and ice shelves are found nowhere else on the globe. Its vast mountain ranges and the enormous emptiness of the polar plateau is something to be seen. Travelling there is like visiting no other country. It is the last vast wilderness on the planet. It's a place of extremes - beautiful and serene, savage and violent - and its scale is almost unfathomable.


The Falkland islands and South Georgia really complete the Antarctic experience. With beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife as well as rich culture and history, an expedition here will stay with you for the rest of your life.


We offer a select number of expedition voyages aboard vessels that are specifically designed for polar expedition voyaging.


There are three classes of vessel on offer:


Expedition and Adventure cruises: These vessels which are usually converted research vessels are all ice strengthened vessels purpose built for these locations. They offer comfortable cabins with standard facilities such as 3* dining, lectures rooms, small libraries, bar/lounge facilities and good deck space for viewing while sailing.


Adventure vessels are the same but have facilities for more activities such as kayaking, scuba diving, camping or snowshoe hiking.


Itineraries are offered with these activities available as well as special photography and bird watching voyages. Take a look at the itineraries for more information or contact us if you are looking for something specific.


Luxury cruises: These vessels have the same itineraries as the Expedition and Adventure vessels but allow you to pamper yourself a little more. These vessels have more luxurious accommodation, restaurant, lounge facilities.


Ice breakers: As the name suggests that's just what these vessels do. They are designed for accessing more isolated locations such as the North Pole or parts of Antarctica where thick sea ice has to be broken to advance. These vessels are of similar standard to the Expedition and Adventure vessels.


Guest numbers on vessels vary from 46 - 114 passengers.
