Summon the spirit of bygone adventurers as you navigate the tempestuous waters of the Drake Passage to the White Continent, the most remote and desolately beautiful place on Earth.
It’s often said that we know more about the moon than the ocean, but the same case could be put forward for Antarctica. To put some rough numbers to it: during winter, there is one person per 5,405 square miles. In the absence of human population, hardy species of wildlife have flourished including colonies of penguin, orca pods, seals, Spring-visiting seabirds and all manner of weird and wonderful sealife.
Lightfoot Travel has 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, the super-luxury all-suite Sea Spirit and Lindblad Expeditions’ flagship National Geographic Explorer, accompanied by expert naturalists, photographers and scientists. As the infamously choppy waters of the Drake Passage are not for everyone, the luxurious M/V Ocean Nova offers a “fly and cruise” option.
