Antarctic Ocean holidays – Call free 0800 707 6229 for Extra Savings

The ‘White Continent’ of Antarctica represents nature in its most extreme, inhospitable, yet captivating form. Embarking on an expedition ship through the dark waters of the Antarctic is a unique adventure. The thrill of exploring a land rarely visited, largely untouched by humans, and dominated by wildlife and the elements, is unparalleled. You will witness penguin colonies, majestic glaciers calving into the ocean, pods of whales, vast expanses of sea ice, and stunning fjords.

 

Destinations in the Antarctic Ocean

Antarctic Peninsula
This mesmerising range of mountains and glaciers is the main destination for holidays to the Antarctic Ocean. It is here that you’ll find the majority of the continent’s research stations as well as the most accessible spots for shore landings

South Georgia
This narrow island is a hotspot for wildlife, home to more than 3 million seals and a variety of birds, including king penguins. Here you’ll also find Shackleton’s grave in the whaler’s cemetery at Grytviken and the South Georgia Museum.

South Shetland Islands

To the south of the famed Drake Passage, the South Shetland Islands are home to more research stations, and former whaling stations. This is the starting point of Antarctic holidays for those who wish to avoid sailing on the Drake Passage

The Falkland Islands
The Falkland Island are home to some of the world’s healthiest penguin colonies, including the world’s largest accessible colony at Volunteer Point. Some holidays may give you the chance to dock in Stanley, the capital, and explore the islands.

 

When to visit the Antarctic Ocean

The ideal time of the year to visit Antarctica is between November and March. During this period, the days are longer, the temperatures are higher, and the wildlife is more active. What month you wish to visit the continent depends on what you wish to see on your holiday. November is a great time for visiting the Falklands and South Georgia Islands to see the wildflowers in bloom. In February and March, you’ll have a greater chance of spotting whales
