The Antarctic Peninsula is the ideal introduction to Antarctic expeditions and cruises
The most northerly and accessible region of Antarctica projects towards the tip of South America. The towering spires will take your breath away, as will the myriad icebergs, icy waterways, noisy penguin colonies, graceful seabirds, or the sight of whales breaching through polar waters. This is a land of superlatives that will embed incredible memories in your mind.
Listed below are expedition Antarctica cruises featuring the Antarctic Peninsula. There are also longer cruises reaching further south past the Polar Circle, voyages to the eastern side of the Peninsula including the Weddell Sea and also Fly/Cruises available with flights across the Drake Passage directly to Antarctica. Many expeditions to South Georgia also include the Peninsula for a more comprehensive expedition experience.
