Experts in Tailor-Made
Antarctica Cruises are an experience unlike anything else. On one of our cruises to Antarctica, you will be able to see the Antarctic Peninsula and some of the South Shetland Islands. Antarctica tours and cruises start either directly from Ushuaia in Argentina’s Patagonia, and pass through the Beagle Channel, Cape Horn, and the Drake Passage, or take a flight first – from Punta Arenas (Chilean Patagonia) to King George Island. Cruising Antarctica means you’ll experience the coldest, highest, southernmost, windiest, driest, and most inhospitable continent. You’ll also have the opportunity to spot fascinating fauna includes penguins, many types of seal, sea lions, seabirds, and whales. We can also arrange pre- and post-cruise tours of Patagonia (Southern Argentina and Chile), where you will find glaciers and lakes, national parks, and snow-capped mountains.

Cruises to Antarctica
Antarctica is often known as the last frontier. Almost 100 years ago, Ernest Shackleton led an expedition to Antarctica. His 17-month epic journey is a legendary tale of survival, adventure, and endurance. Fortunately, travel to Antarctica today is much easier and affordable by taking any number of Ushuaia to Antarctica cruises.
Ushuaia to Antarctica Cruises
Departing from Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world, Antarctica cruises make their way south for the frozen continent. Travelers have a number of Ushuaia to Antarctica cruise options, from a 10-day cruise to/from the Antarctic Peninsula to a 3-week cruise visiting a number of South Atlantic Islands, such as the Falklands and South Georgia Islands.
Plancius Antarctica Cruise
The Plancius Antarctica Cruise departs from Ushuaia on a 10-20 day journey through the Beagle Channel, Drake Passage, South Shetland Islands, Deception Island, and more.
Classic Ushuaia to Antarctica Cruise
The Classic Ushuaia to Antarctica Cruise departs from Ushuaia for 10-11 days through the Drake Passage to King George Island and Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Paradise Bay, Deception Island, the Antarctica Peninsula, and Petermann Island to visit a gentoo penguins colony.
Antarctica cruises offer a wide array of options, from smaller ships, which can navigate closer to land, to converted icebreakers, larger luxury cruise ships, and research vessels. Each cruise brings passengers up close to icebergs, sea ice floes, and the rich and diverse wildlife that calls Antarctica home.
Note: the best time to visit Antarctica is from November until March of each year when temperatures are at their most mild.
