Take an adventure many have only dreamed of. Explore this big white 'desert' in comfort

Breathtaking mountains, glaciers and fjords; astonishing colours and sounds; unique wildlife, such as the emperor penguin and leopard seal, as well as research stations and historical points of interest – the White Continent offers an awe-inspiring, once in a lifetime experience.

With visits limited to the Southern Hemisphere’s summer months, the continent of snow and ice remains little-travelled and relatively untouched.

We work with a good choice of expedition vessels – from smaller ships to icebreakers – which offer a range of adventure and comfort, visiting both the area to the south of Tierra del Fuego and the even more remote South Shetland Islands, Falklands and South Georgia.




As every one of the holidays we create is truly tailor-made, all of our clients come back with different and interesting stories. We love to hear from our clients on their return to find out about their most memorable moments. Our Destination Experts are also always travelling to our extraordinary destinations and every trip allows us to refine and add value to our clients' future experiences.

We visit each destination in our three regions on a regular basis and have detailed conversations with our clients on their return so our choices are continually refined. Here are just four c+l reviews. This is by no means a prescriptive list, but hints at what we look for and value in places to stay.

Best time to go

Best visited from November through to February when the ice makes it possible to get into true Antarctica and, for the more adventurous trips, when activities on land and pack ice are most extensive. Antarctica combines well with the South of Argentina and the South of Chile.
