Adventure Life's Antarctica cruise experts have selected the best small cruise ships designed with hardened hulls for breaking through Antarctic ice. Small ships also have the benefit of being able to access deeper into the Antarctic circle and into small coves where large cruise ships are not allowed to disembark. Spot penguins from a zodiac or as you sea kayak, ski or even camp on the Antarctic Peninsula. Sail in style on one of our luxury Antarctic cruises which have the best guides, cuisine and overall experience. Most cruises to Antarctica begin and finish in the quaint port of Ushuaia, Argentina, though flight/cruise options from Punta Arenas Chile can cut the average 12 day trip to as little as 6 days. Contact one of our Antarctica cruise experts for help planing your dream trip to the white continent.
