An Antarctic expedition is truly a once in a lifetime journey to one of the last great wildernesses. The fragile frozen continent offers an experience that few others have enjoyed. Walk around penguin colonies, wander through shipwrecked remains, glide between towering blue icebergs in tiny boats and watch humpback whales playing in the freezing water. 

You'll likely board your expedition ship at Ushuaia, in Patagonia's tip. Consider extending your stay here to explore the magnificent scenery on horseback or on foot. The steppe landscape with its dramatic rock formations and lakes is a sight to behold. View our suggested Patagonia itinerary for more details.
