Antarctic Expeditions

Tailored travel to the frozen continent

"Antarctica has this mythic weight. It resides in the collective unconscious of so many people, and it makes this huge impact, just like outer space. It's like going to the moon." ― Jon Krakauer, writer and mountaineer.

"The land looks like a fairy tale." ― Roald Amundsen, first explorer to reach the South Pole

"Antarctica still remains a remote, lonely and desolate continent. A place where it's possible to see the splendours and immensities of the natural world at its most dramatic and, what's more, witness them almost exactly as they were, long, long before human beings ever arrived on the surface of this planet. Long may it remain so." ― Sir David Attenborough, broadcaster and naturalist.

"In the soft glamour of the midsummer midnight sun, we were possessed by a rapturous wonder--the rare thrill of unreality." ― Douglas Mawson, explorer and geologist

Antarctic Peninsula
