Antarctica

For many this is the ultimate wildlife and wilderness experience. This is nature at its most extreme

Adventure Holidays in Antarctica

An expedition to Antartica is the ultimate wilderness destination, a pristine area navigable only by small ice-strengthened vessels. On the ice-bound seventh continent nothing comes easily, but your daring-do 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, small groups on expedition vessels can now follow in the footsteps of those explorers and navigate through sea-sculpted bergs and groaning, crumbling glaciers to discover sights rarely seen by humanity.

Exodus are among the few who offer a range of adventure, activity and wildlife expedition voyages to Antarctica during the short summer months. Plunged into darkness for six months of the year, during the austral summer the vast pack ice opens. Then this harsh and inhospitable environment plays host to one of the greatest wildlife spectacles on earth.

Millions of penguins, petrels and albatrosses breed here, seals laze languidly on ice floes, and whales indulge Zodiacs benignly under virtual 24 hour daylight.

Expert opinion…

Our expeditions to the Antarctic 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.”
