Embark on an epic adventure as we take you to the Land of the Penguins on this Antarctic Peninsula Expedition. Follow in the footsteps of previous explorers and witness the magnificence of the unspoilt wilderness, which is inhabited by an assortment of fascinating wildlife. As the sun is reflected from the bright white terrains, penguins, whales and seals can be seen basking in the sunlight. Join us as we sail through the Beagle Channel towards Drake Passage and on to Antarctica.

Relax in the peaceful ambience of this incredible continent, which remains the only region on Earth that has not been influenced by mankind. Due to the extreme conditions, there are no permanent human inhabitants in the Antarctic, making it a most intriguing place to visit. The Antarctic Treaty states that this location is to be preserved for the purposes of science and peace. By taking part in the Antarctic Peninsula Expedition you can be assured that all of the ships used for this adventure meet the standards of the treaty and all environmental considerations are maintained. The ships are specifically designed to ensure guests are comfortable and enjoy all aspects of their journey.
