Antarctica holidays by Cox & Kings

Cruise to the far end of the Earth – past heart-stopping glaciers, alongside waddling penguin colonies and through frozen wilderness – to experience the last true adventure left in the world.

The main attraction is the spectacular and dramatic landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula – a domain of jagged snowy mountains, immense ice shelves, calving glaciers and giant blue icebergs. Navigating south along the western side, extreme latitudes can be reached on a Polar Circle crossing.

The remote Weddell Sea lies on the eastern side and offers opportunities to follow in the footsteps of heroic polar expeditions. The South Shetland Islands are a string of more than 20 islands, running parallel to the north-west of the Antarctic Peninsula, and are the perfect location to spot the magnificent array of Antarctic wildlife on offer. The less visited South Georgia and the welcoming Falkland Islands are home to wildlife species that may be different to those in Antarctica.
