Many Antarctica vacations are specialized to focus on a particular landscape or style of travel. For instance, Antarctic Circle tours aim to cross the latitude at which the sun never sets. Some boat tours to Antarctica strive to view majestic emperor penguin colonies. Antarctic tours to the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island venture beyond the Antarctic Peninsula. Some trips fly to Antarctica over the Drake Passage one way or round-trip. And Antarctica luxury cruises pair five-star suites and fine dining with adventure. Boat tours to Antarctica are as diverse as the polar landscape. 

Antarctica Adventure Trips

For travelers seeking more activity, we offer a range of Antarctic adventure trips. Hiking and Antarctic kayak tours explore farther and longer in search of wildlife and solitude. Antarctic camping trips allow adventurous guests to overnight on the continent. Antarctica ski touring can be arranged for skiers and snowboarders seeking the ultimate backcountry adventure.

Additional Antarctica adventure trips include mountaineering, cross-country skiing, ice climbing, snowshoeing, scuba diving and trekking. Adventure holidays in Antarctica are the most active way to explore up close. Many activities book far in advance so plan ahead when considering your Antarctic adventure trip.

Antarctica weather is a lesson in extremes. Antarctica is the world’s coldest, windiest and driest continent. However, during the South Polar summer months when Antarctica tours operate (November-March) the winds subside considerably and the weather is surprisingly comfortable, averaging between 20 and 50 degrees F. The climate data listed above is for the Antarctic Peninsula. Learn more about the best time to visit Antarctica.
