Antarctic Expedition: In Pursuit of the World’s Great Explorers

About this Journey

Follow the voyages of history’s great expeditioners – Ferdinand Magellan, James Cook, and Ernest Shackleton, to name a few – to the last frontier, the South Pole.

For millennia the south of the globe remained a land of icy mystique. It wasn’t until the 1500s that explorers even dared approach the frigid pole, let alone step foot on the shimmering snow masses.

Unlike the treacherous conditions these early explorers faced, however, this journey is red-carpeted, with expedited flight routes to maximize time on the continent itself and a boutique ship of only 73 guests to ensure the most personalized experience out there.

Where you're going
What we love

  • Experiencing the life of Antarctica’s cold-adapted animals – seabirds, seals, whales and penguins.
  • Gazing out at the vast snowfields of Antarctica from the warmth of the ship’s glass-enclosed observation lounge.
