Laced in legend and located at the end of the world, Antarctica offers the trip of a lifetime. Set foot on the “White Continent” with an unforgettable Antarctic cruise.
Things to Do in Antarctica
- Photograph the Lemaire Channel. This beautifully blue channel located between two towering ice-encrusted peaks offers some awe-inspiring scenery.
- Get up close to penguins and seals on King George’s Island. This island is also home to numerous research centres, ideal for any science and history lovers.
- Discover Deception Island. This strange and beautiful ring-shaped island is dotted with eerie abandoned whaling stations and scenic hot springs.
- Make friends and family jealous by sending them home a postcard complete with an Antarctic stamp. Yes, Antarctica has a post office on Port Lockroy as part of the museum.
Best Time to Visit
Nov-Mar: The best time to visit Antarctica and spot hatching penguin chicks, as well as catch a glimpse of seals and whales. Antarctica has a strict summer window for travellers, as the rest of the year can be brutally cold and dark. Some operators start tours as early as October, which is a great time to visit if you want to witness the penguin mating season.
