We Love

Getting up close to Antarctica’s comical penguins. Taking a deep breath of pristine Antarctic air. Stepping out onto the seventh continent.


A place unlike anywhere else, the white wilderness and sheer untouched grandeur of Antarctica will leave you speechless. Aside from its surrealistic landscape the Antarctic Peninsula is rich in wildlife, with an array of comical penguin species - you may spot young gentoo and chinstrap penguins chasing their parents! Look for whales and countless sea birds, plus Weddell and leopard seals hauled out on icebergs or feeding on the vast supplies of krill and squid, as you sail through the Great White Continent. On this Antarctica cruise, your experience will be nothing less than breathtaking.

  • HEJ DAY 4 5

    Days 4-5 - Crossing the Drake Passage

    We spend two days crossing the Drake Passage (named after Sir Francis Drake), which connects the southern Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Here the warm waters from the north meet the cold, less-salty waters from the south, making the ocean particularly rich in nutrients and forming the basis of the unique marine life in the region.

    Once we have crossed the Antarctic Convergence, we transition to the crisp, colder air and mighty icebergs begin to appear on the horizon. Breathtaking wildlife, including penguins and possibly magnificent whales may soon be spotted.

  • HEJ DAY 6 10

    Days 6-10 - Antarctica

    Spend five astounding days in one of the most remote places on earth, Antarctica. During this time we step ashore many times to discover breathtaking scenery, get close to native wildlife including penguins, whales and seals, experience walking on the endless glistening snow and ice, visit old whaling stations and join adventurous activities including kayaking and hiking. Weather conditions will determine the exact nature of your programme. Safety is paramount and the ship’s captain will decide the itinerary during the voyage. Possible landing sites are:

    Deception Island, South Shetland Islands - A captivating volcanic island, home to a natural harbour, an abandoned whaling station and volcanically-warmed sand and waters - sometimes possible to swim in!

    Half Moon Island - One of the most beautiful areas of the South Shetlands, this majestic island is home to a large Chinstrap penguin colony as well as Antarctic terns, Kelp gulls, Snowy sheathbills, Wilson’s storm petrels and several species of seal. Step ashore to get close to the beautiful wildlife and put your photography skills to the test.

    Yankee Harbour - Arrive in this small inner harbour, to discover a large colony of Gentoo penguins estimated to consist of around 4,000 breeding pairs.

    Neko Harbour - Nestled in the innermost part of Andvord Bay, Neko Harbour is one of the places that you can place your feet on the Antarctic mainland. A mighty glacier calves here every so often; and an array of wildlife including Minke whales, Gentoo penguins and leopard seals call it home.

    Paradise Bay - Magnificent glaciated mountains, ice floes, breathtaking ice cliffs and icebergs. Disembark to admire the icy scenery and discover the typical Atlantic wildlife residing here, including Gentoo penguins, crabeater seals and whales.

    Wilhelmina Bay - Often named ‘Whale-mania Bay’ due to the large numbers of humpback whales spotted here amidst the outstanding scenery.

Important information about your destination

Please note: • Cruises to Antarctica can follow a wide and varied itinerary, calling at a range of landings as dictated by weather conditions and other factors. As decisions are made a short time in advance, every voyage is unique and therefore a flexible approach will ensure that those who join this wonderful adventure can enjoy it to the fullest. • This tour includes excursions by Polarcirkel or Zodiac boat and requires a good level of mobility, due to areas of rough terrain and significant amounts of walking on slippery surfaces. • A tour manager isn’t included on the cruise. Your ship’s expert crew will be available instead.
