Embark on an Antarctic Expedition

Earth’s final frontier is a remote and unspoilt paradise; a land of extremes home to looming icebergs, breath-taking glaciers and historic sites vacated by the early explorers. An epic Antarctic expedition is the only way to witness the raw beauty of this region in all its glory.

See and do

Witness shimmering sunlight from midday until midnight during the bountiful summer months, and marvel as thousands of penguins come together to breed. Captivating and awe-inspiring, Antarctic expeditions are the only way to witness this magical landscape.

Follow in the footsteps of great explorers such as Adrien de Gerlache, Sir Ernest Shackleton and James Weddell as you visit their historic outposts. Board a Zodiac® expedition onto the icy water and hold your breath in anticipation for the exhalation of a humpback, minke or pilot whale. You may even catch a glimpse of the magnificent orca.

Back on land, you will trek across the snow in search of bird life. Antarctica holidays wouldn’t be complete without sightings of some of the regions charismatic penguins. Rockhopper, Gentoo, Adelie: you will find them all slicing through the water and waddling across the landscape. But don’t forget to look up; albatross, shearwaters and petrels soar overhead.

On-board experience

You don’t have to suffer cramped tents and bully beef to live life as an explorer. Antarctic expeditions fully immerse you in the remote grandeur of this ice-crowned continent without compromising on comfort.

With Silversea, Antarctica has never been more accessible. The reinforced hull of Silversea’s Ice Class ships, Silver Explorer and Silver Cloud, mean nowhere is out of bounds, helping you reach Polar highlights no other cruise line can. And the experience on-board is no less special.

Championing sustainable tourism, no more than 200 passengers are permitted on-board, offering intimate Antarctica holidays with no shortage of luxury. Sweeping decks are the perfect place to enjoy Antarctica’s blanket of complete silence, while inside, you can enjoy fine dining, exceptional service and sophisticated staterooms with spectacular views.

One of the best parts of an Antarctica cruise, however, is the opportunity to enjoy on-board lectures with professional naturalists, scientists and photographers. You will learn about your destination through first-hand anecdotes and breath-taking images, and will fall even more in love with this unbelievable part of the world.
