Enthralling Antarctica

A trip to Antarctica will always be a once in a lifetime journey and whenever you get a chance to visit the seventh and the most enchanting continent make the most of it. A journey to the remote continent of the world that gives you an opportunity to witness movements of penguins and seals. As winter in Antarctica is severe and inhospitable the best time to hit the deck is during the summer months. And believe us you will be surprised by what the continent offers you.

Enjoy the Wildlife
When one thinks of Antarctic wildlife, PENGUINS are often the first animals that come to mind. But even in such harsh conditions Antarctica remains the home of a large variety of extraordinary wildlife. The animals of Antarctica - penguins, seals, whales, albatrosses and others—are typically the main attraction for people taking a trip down town.

Drake Passage
Drake Passage was originally named after the famous explorer Sir Frances Drake and marks the Antarctic Convergence. This voyage will give you an opportunity to enjoy the crisp Antarctic air while enjoying the stunning view. Not only will it give you a chance to lookout for whales but will also mark the first sightings of icebergs and snow-capped mountains of the South Shetland Islands, an archipelago of twenty islands and islets first discovered in 1819.

While most of us have heard and seen the iceberg in the movie Titanic, Icebergs are commonly found near Antarctica.

Polar Circle Crossing
By crossing the Antarctic Circle, you will join an elite group of people, an impressive achievement that will be cherished by you all your life and a story to tell when you get back home.

The Antarctic Peninsula

It is the northernmost part of the mainland of Antarctica, located at the base of the Southern Hemisphere. Many visitors have described the Antarctic Peninsula as being one of the most beautiful places on earth.
