WELCOME TO ANTARCTICA

Antarctica is a land of raw and exquisite frozen seascapes – the natural world in its most natural state.

WHY VISIT ANTARCTICA?

This austral hinterland instills a genuine sense of adventure – and indeed of privilege, with few people ever experiencing the awesome scale and tranquility of the great wilderness.

Expeditions last anything from one day to a month and can include landings at South Shetland, The Falkland Islands and South Georgia (known as “the Galapagos of the Poles”).

In addition to Whichaway Camp, the world’s remotest – and one of its most comfortable – outposts, we have selected the best boats for our guests, from luxury icebreakers to state-of-the-art expedition super yachts. Each carries a diverse team of chefs, naturalists and historians ready to make your Antarctic adventure one of a kind.

Kayak around icebergs the size of small towns, trek shores populated by thousands of penguins, ski the Antarctic Peninsula and explore the many islands, bays and otherwise-inaccessible channels by Zodiac. Take the polar plunge at Deception Island, the caldera of a still-active volcano. And for those up to the challenge, we organise five-day overland expeditions, tracing the route of the legendary 20th century explorer, Ernest Shackleton.

Indulge in a unique dining experience in the world’s most remote continent!

Meals in Antarctica are a delightful surprise, crafted to warm and energise you in the frosty climate. Imagine savouring hearty homemade stews and casseroles, each bite a testament to the ingenuity of Antarctic chefs.

Dining in the most southerly part of the world is less about everyday ingredients and more about an extraordinary experience in an extreme environment – a truly memorable part of your polar journey.

Embark on an auditory expedition in Antarctica, where the music is as extraordinary as the landscape. The continent resonates with a symphony of global melodies, echoing the diverse origins of its temporary residents.

The natural soundscape of Antarctica provides a concert like no other. From the melodious calls of penguin colonies to the haunting howls of the relentless winds and the mesmerising crackle of shifting ice, the environment composes its own unparalleled symphony. For those with a keen musical interest, the continent has inspired numerous composers and musicians who have captured its essence in stirring orchestral pieces and ambient soundscapes.

LISTEN IN

Souvenirs from Antarctica are unique. While there are no traditional crafts or local products, visitors often take home items like commemorative stamps or coins issued for Antarctic bases.

The most authentic souvenir, however, is photography capturing the stark, pristine beauty of the landscape and wildlife, from penguins to icebergs.

Some recommended reading…

There are lots of opportunities to learn about the continent through scientific literature and research papers available at research stations. Popular reading choices include:
