Peak Experiences on the Antarctic Peninsula

Antarctica is the driest, windiest, chilliest place on the planet—and one of today’s hottest destinations. The International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators estimates that nearly 45,000 travelers will visit the White Continent this year, although fewer than a quarter of them will actually set foot on land. Opportunities to hike along its icy shores are just one reason our upcoming journey to the polar region leaves our competitors out in the cold. We’ve been leading expedition cruises there for more than 25 years; we use that knowledge and experience—and that of our incredible expedition staff—to create the most comprehensive Antarctic expedition for 2018.
