Help Me Plan My Trip
Bundle up for your Expedition Antarctica! Adventure Life has carefully selected some of the best classic cruises through this frigid part of the world, and we'll help you through your planning process. You will follow in the footsteps of the great Shackleton as you trek across polar tundras and permafrosted sheets of ice and snow. As your comfortable expedition ship cruises through these waters, keep an eye out for humpback whales and all kinds of seabirds that enjoy the all-you-can-eat seafood menu provided by the nutrient rich water. If you want a closer look at the diverse marine life, including even penguins & sea lions, you'll also likely have opportunities to explore in kayaks & zodiacs. Destinations along the way might include the Shetlands, South Georgia Island, and of course, the historic Antarctic Peninsula.
