The Expedition Experience

Remote. Untrammeled. Spectacular. An Antarctica cruise is one of the most exhilarating adventures on Earth. There are many reasons to explore it. Antarctica wildlife: scores of penguins and whales. Ice: an entire museum of colossal and magical ice forms defying description. And the dashing history of the Heroic Age of Exploration.
