Antarctica Cruises & Travel Tours

Antarctica is often considered the ultimate travel destination for Australians, and the best way to visit Antarctica is on an expedition cruise. Many consider Antarctica the last frontier and the ultimate in travel experiences.

Travel to the end of the Earth and explore the vast wilderness of the great white continent on one of our many incredible small ship expeditions. Travellers are invited to join us as we explore the planet’s most remote continent with its unspoilt, awe-inspiring scenery and incredible wildlife encounters.

Antarctica is the fifth largest, the coldest and the driest continent on Earth. Cruises not only offer travellers the amazing opportunity to observe the abundance of wildlife it has to offer from the comfort of their expedition vessel, but also to gain inspirational insights from a dedicated and knowledgeable crew who spend their working lives traversing the icy ends of the globe. This is truly the very height of exciting travel and adventure holidays. Add the great, white continent to your travel itinerary and see for yourself what the most remote destination on the planet can offer you.

The Antarctica cruise season runs from November to March each year – with the months of November and March generally having the cheaper cruises, and December to mid-February being the peak season. Each month really offers its unique advantages. Cruises depart from South America or longer voyages from Australia or New Zealand. The voyage from South America is the more affordable and popular departure option having considerably less sea days, but the Australia and New Zealand options offer an opportunity to see the sub-Antarctic islands crossing the Ross Sea and witness the amazing King and Emperor Penguins. Luxury Antarctica cruises offer travellers a unique opportunity to explore this isolated wilderness with the comforts of a luxury hotel as they move around.
