From South Amer­ica, it takes less than two days’ sail­ing, or two hours’ fly­ing, to en­ter a world that fills the heart, over­loads the senses and im­prints your mem­ory for­ever.

Aurora Ex­pe­di­tions

THE ANTARC­TIC PENIN­SULA’S west coast of­fers ice-clad peaks tow­er­ing over a maze of pro­tected channels; the east coast a vast ice­cap and strange, fos­sil-rich is­lands. From spring to fall, this stun­ning land­scape be­comes fu­ri­ous with life as pen­guins, seals, pe­trels, and whales ar­rive to feed and breed.

Spirit of Antarc­tica 11/12 Days from US$9,700 pp

Antarc­tic ad­ven­tures are best en­joyed mid­sum­mer, when nearmid­night sun pow­ers an ex­plo­sion of life along the shore and bright­ens the thought of camp­ing out, early alpine climb­ing starts or ex­tended kayak­ing trips. Pen­guin high­ways are busy with traf­fic as par­ents hurry to fat­ten chicks and wa­ter­ways are alive with whales and seals. We visit his­toric sites and step onto the most spec­tac­u­lar con­ti­nent on Earth.
