At a loss to come up with adjectives!
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“I am at a loss to come up with adjectives to describe this Expedition. Fantastico! The Expedition was Fantastico! The success of this Expedition was the result of the professionalism and hard work of the entire team. From the Hotel staff to the Ships crew and Expedition staff, this was truly a Team Effort. Everyone involved pulled together to make this a memorable experience. And everyone was in good humour from the moment we stepped aboard. And the Diamond did her part as well. She is well named - truly a Diamond.. Yours in loving Antarctica.”
Overall phenomenal
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“The skiing and mountaineering experiences were amazing and their availability on the Ocean Endeavour is why we chose this boat over others. Getting to go out 3 times for each of these experiences was amazing and far exceeded my expectations. The hotel management was amazing . Rosemarie who cleaned our room was lovely and went above and beyond to make our experience with this tour operator even more memorable. The chef always had the biggest smile I have ever seen on his face . The food and dining room staff were exceptional . The guest experience on board this vessel has been phenomenal”
Carefully designed expedition
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“This carefully designed expedition has provided me with a once in a life time experience. All the crew staffs are friendly and worked very hard with flexibilities to make our stay on board comfortable and all the expedition member made their best efforts to make our expedition experiences memorable.”

Antarctica — Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Nonetheless, there are still plenty of great cruises and expeditions available for those who are brave enough to visit it — and it can be quite exciting to be one of the few people who ever get the chance to explore this ice-covered continent. Check out some of the things you should know before your trip to Antarctica. 

Antarctica Cruise Highlights

  • Catch a glimpse of wildlife in their natural habitat like the Emperor Penguins, whales and seals
  • Experience the most extreme side of nature, visiting some corners of the Earth that are only accessible by special ice-strengthened boats
  • Cross the infamous Drake Passage, or the Sea of Hoces - the world’s roughest sea (brace yourself if you are prone to get seasick)

Antarctica Travel Tips

  • There are strict environmental guidelines that you must follow on your visit to Antarctica, and you cannot visit on your own. You will have to explore the region as part of a small group on a cruise ship, accompanied by a guide.
  • Antarctica can only be visited during the continent’s short summer months, typically between November and March. Otherwise, the weather is too harsh.
  • There are about 24 hours of sunlight in this part of the world, so be sure to pack sunscreen.
  • Most trips to Antarctica depart from Argentina and run for multiple days. Expect to be gone for anywhere from 10 days to an entire month. This is a long adventure!

In these tours, you will also get plenty of time on land to photograph Antarctica's breathtaking vistas and glaciers.

Popular durations for Antarctica trip

Antarctica trips typically require a great deal of planning. The sheer logistics of traveling to the region means one cannot take a quick trip to the continent. We recommend setting aside at least 14 days for your trip to Antarctica. This will give you enough time to see Ushuaia, hike the most popular trails, take countless photographs of the scenic views, enjoy intimate wildlife viewing, and, of course, visit all the historical sites.

Peak season and low season tours in Antarctica

  • Peak season tours in Antarctica: The Antarctic summer, from November through early February, is the peak period for Antarctica tours. The region is at its warmest during this period, and you can enjoy up to 24 hours of daylight, making it the best time for hiking, photography tours, and other outdoor adventures. This is also the peak wildlife breeding season. But do make sure to book your trip well ahead of time and be ready to part with a significant amount of money.
  • Low-season tours in Antarctica: Mid-February to March is considered the low tourist season in Antarctica. The weather is much colder and there are fewer daylight hours during this time of the year. Still, the overall conditions are much more bearable than in the peak fall and winter seasons. You can anticipate lower prices on Antarctica trips and cruises due to lower tourist arrival. Despite being the low season, February and March is a great time to visit Antarctica if you are a wildlife enthusiast. Penguin chicks leave their nest and the whale numbers are at their peak around this time.

Popular Antarctica trip travel guide

If you are planning a trip to Antarctica, you will want to know about the best time to visit Antarctica as well as check out all available Antarctica tours. You may also wish to learn more about the top things to do in Antarctica. Once you are sure about some of the activities you wish to experience in Antarctica, along with the destinations you want to visit, you may want to consider how many days to stay in Antarctica. We generally recommend staying at least 14 days in Antarctica, but recommend 10 days in Antarctica or more, to get the most out of your trip to Antarctica.

Next, we recommend you start thinking about the money you can allocate to the trip to know whether you should be looking for a budget tour, a luxury tour, or perhaps a completely customized tour to Antarctica.
