Antarctica Tours and Cruises 2015

We offer Antarctica Cruises, tours and Antarctica travel packages to suit your every need. One of the most appealing aspects of Antarctica is its wildlife. Although there are only a few native species, those that have adapted to the harsh environment thrive in large numbers. Penguin populations are counted in the tens of thousands in some rookeries.

On a larger cruise ship, generally you are in Antarctica for the scenery and photo ops.  Expeditions are much more hands on with daily zodiac landings.  Some Antarctica Cruises take the adventure a step further, by offering a variety of optional active activities to enjoy such as camping, cross-country skiing, kayaking, and overnight camping on a glacier. We've listed a variety of vacations so you can choose the perfect Antarctica experience for you. All the planning if done for you and you can just sit back and relax, we have compiled a list of travel packages throughout Antarctica for you to choose from.

The Antarctic provides excitement only associated with early explorers.  Take in the amazing scenery, a pristine wilderness of snow, ice, mountains and waterways, and an incredible wide variety of wildlife.  On expeditions vs. large ship cruising, your ship will navigate some of the most beautiful waterways, and depending on ice conditions, you generally make at least 2 landings per day.
