Luxury Cruises in Antarctica

It’s often said that we know more about the moon than the ocean; the same case could be put forward for Antarctica. During winter, there is one person per 5,405 square miles on this Great White Continent. Here, hardy species of wildlife have flourished including colonies of penguin, orca pods, seals, Spring-visiting seabirds and all manner of weird and wonderful sea life. Cruise Antarctica with Lightfoot Travel and navigate the tempestuous waters of the Drake Passage to the White Continent.

We have partnered with the world’s leading cruise operators to bring you the most extraordinary Antarctica expeditions. These include, but are not limited to, decommissioned science vessels like the One Ocean Expeditions Akademik Ioffe, and the super-luxury all-suite Sea Spirit and Lindblad Expeditions’ flagship National Geographic Explorer, accompanied by naturalists, photographers and scientists. As the choppy waters of the Drake Passage are not for everyone, M/V Ocean Nova offers a “fly and cruise” option.
