Looking at the icebergs from the zodiac


For many this is the ultimate wildlife and wilderness experience – it's nature at its most extreme

Antarctic Adventures

An expedition to Antarctica is the ultimate wilderness adventure, exploring a pristine area navigable only by small ice-strengthened vessels.

On the ice-bound seventh continent nothing comes easily, but an intrepid spirit is richly rewarded, for this is the most unexplored place on the planet. Until recently, Antarctica was accessible only to the men and women of meticulously planned pioneering expeditions. But, following strict environmental guidelines, our Antarctica trips now follow in the footsteps of those explorers. We take small groups on expedition cruise vessels, navigating through sea-sculpted bergs and groaning, crumbling glaciers to discover sights rarely seen by humanity.

Quotes from the experts: 

"It’ll be a real pleasure to have several weeks to teach Paul and Chris a thing or two about photography (I know they’re both keen to learn) in one of my favourite places on the planet. And expedition adventures don’t come much more comfortable than on the Resolute.

Mark Carwardine

"One ship, three Canons…. this will be something. I cannot wait to lock horns with these ‘sometime’ friends again and help share the seventh continent with a hundred or so polar pilgrims. Will the three of us be talking at the end of it? Come and find out!”

Paul Goldstein

"You don’t have to go to the ends of the earth to get a good photo . . . but it helps! Snow and Ice, Golden Penguins, a Humpback Surprise . . . and these are just the cocktails at the bar! Seriously, this will be amazing.”

Chris Packham

Expert opinion

Our Antarctica trips & Antarctica cruises are Attenborough-worthy voyages of discovery, and we’re not the only ones who think so!

“Anyone who’s been sat slack-jawed in front of David Attenborough’s BBC series Frozen Planet will not necessarily have been thinking about their next holiday. But perhaps that’s not quite as daft as it sounds. UK travel company Exodus has a series of ‘polar itineraries’, which can take the more adventurous package holidayer towards either the Antarctic or the Arctic. You could practice your huskiest Attenborough voice on a 12-day trip to the Antarctic, which takes in the ominous-sounding ‘Iceberg Alley’ as well as the sneaky-sounding ‘Deception Island’, a 19th-century refuge from icebergs and chilly polar storms.”
