Antarctica is remote and untamed, a wildlife paradise and adventurer’s playground. Those privileged to visit feel nature’s power, both in her storms and stunning beauty. Shackleton and Crean left a legacy of epic survival tales, scientific discoveries and historical sites. Like them, going south is possibly the greatest experience of our lives.
From Ushuaia, Argentina, Platinum Travel and Silversea carry you to a paradise of ice-clad mountains, islands raucous with wild animals and comfortable passage through a glorious maze of sheltered channels and inlets. We’ll visit a unique continent, where penguins are curious, not afraid; seal pups sniff our gumboots and the cycle of life is on show.
Each voyage differs with destination and seasonal change. Join us on the adventure of a lifetime!
