Antarctica Holidays

Antarctica holidays

There are very few holidays which you can say are truly unique. A holiday to Antarctica is one of them....

Here you will be able to enjoy utterly dramatic landscape and wildlife.

It doesn't get more dramatic that watching gigantic icebergs falling into mirror crisp water on a brilliant sunny day ..... with whales, seals and penguins swimming nearby.

Itinerary Recommendation - 12-Day Highlights of the Frozen Continent Tour - From £5,399 per person (Based on Departure on 21st November 2019)

To easiest way to start planning and to get indicative prices is to fill out an enquiry form and our Antarctic experts will be delighted to help. 

The best time to visit Antarctica is within the months of November and March. Those who visit in November will be greeted by incredible landscapes covered in crisp snow, whereas those who visit during December and January have a chance of witnessing newly hatched penguin chicks. Travellers who are interested in whale watching will have the best chance of visibility in the months of February and March.

And before you start to think that it's nothing more than snow, ice and water. Here are just some of the things one of our directors did on a recent trip there:-
