Antarctic Peninsula's magical scenery

Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Peninsula

The sensory overload of the Antarctic Peninsula

The northernmost arm of the Antarctic Continent, the Antarctic Peninsula is the southern continuation of an extensive mountain chain that runs from North America through South America and into the Scotia Sea. As a travel destination, the Antarctic Peninsula offers some of the most varied wildlife and dramatic scenery in the whole of Antarctica, as replete with animals as it is with ice formations.

Antarctic Peninsula: a wonderland of ice and wildlife

Visitors are often overcome by the abundance of massive icebergs, sprawling glaciers, and towering mountains along the Antarctic Peninsula. But it’s not just the iconic Antarctic terrain that amazes polar passengers: the Antarctic Peninsula is one of the best places on the continent to see multiple penguin species, namely gentoos, chinstraps, Adélies, and the much-loved emperors. A variety of seals and whales can also be spotted in addition to the area’s numerous seabirds.

The vibrant variety of Antarctic Peninsula cruises

Due to the supreme popularity of the Antarctic Peninsula, we offer a number of voyages that explore this exciting area. Some of these are epic odysseys that make landings in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and the South Shetlands as well. Other cruises take a deeper and more detailed view of only a few key locations, providing passengers a basecamp from which to embark on a number of adventurous outdoor activities. Still other Antarctic Peninsula cruises provide thrilling helicopter tours that grant passengers a bird’s-eye-view of the fantastic polar landscape.
