Antarctica is one of the most forbidding and sparsely populated places on earth, with only permanent manned research stations providing any kind of consistent human habitation - as a result the scenery is virtually unspoiled and wildlife both fearless and abundant. As you explore this icy wilderness from the comfort of a modern cruise ship you can rest assured that all visits to the region are carefully controlled to maintain environmental standards and ensure the pristine natural state is kept intact.
When to Visit?
It is only possible to visit Antarctica and the southern hemisphere when conditions permit between November and March, when temperatures are usually around -5C to -8C with strong wind chill. Good protective clothing is essential; some cruises will provide exploration gear however please consult your Cruise Specialist before booking to see what equipment is provided.
