Luxury Holidays to Antarctica 2014, 2015 with A&K

Call 01242 547 701 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Antarctica's magical aesthetic of snowy expanses and towers of ice plunging into the deep blues and greens of the bitter Southern Ocean symbolises one of our planet's last remaining natural frontiers -an isolated, untamed wilderness that is begging to be explored. To Captain Cook, Antarctica was merely "a land doomed by nature to an everlasting frigidness", which he deemed unworthy of exploring. How wrong he was. The impenetrability which he encountered is precisely what makes The White Continent special. Covering over five million square miles of the coldest and driest place on Earth, Antarctica's hostility and isolation have left it virtually untouched by humans, and as such has enabled it to protect an array of wildlife, making it possibly the finest place in the world to observe animals in their natural habitat. Our trips (link to new page) to the furthest point south will take you to the most far-flung reaches of the Antarctic Peninsula: vast colonies of penguins and seabirds;hanging ice cliffs;stately icebergs and calving glaciers;and the incredible adventures of Shackleton and Charcot. Visit the scantily populated, wildlife-rich islands of the Falklands and historic South Georgia, where you'll follow in Sir Ernest Shackleton's footsteps, gaining an in-depth understanding of the incredibly varied landscapes and the areas surprising history. The Southern Ocean's stunning scenery is home to equally extraordinary, unique wildlife. From Arctic tern to Antarctic shag, elephant seal to humpback whale, and of course, the penguins, the barren wastes of the Polar Regions are replete with wildlife, despite the punishing climate.
