There’s nothing that can really prepare you for the remote otherworldliness that is Antarctica. From the vast white wilderness landscape, to colossal icebergs and abundant wildlife, whether it’s your first or hundredth visit to the world’s highest, driest, coldest and windiest continent, there is only one word that accurately describes the awe you feel upon arrival; magic.
With Antarctica tours running between November and February each year, you can whet your adventurous spirit with Trafalgar onboard the luxury expedition ship, the m/v Sea Spirit. Expect to be in a constant state of awe as you slice through the icy waters of the Drake Passage, where you’ll welcome vast ice-dotted landscapes; watch the sun glisten on the golden furs of seals lazing on ice floes and kayak through icy waters in search of up close and personal encounters with whales, penguins and other bird species that call Antarctica home.
As far as thrilling adventures go, this is the big one, filled with many ‘pinch me’ moments. Travel to Antarctica with us and unlock a world of infinite possibilities thanks to our exclusive Trafalgar Highlights.
