Three Distinct Ways to Travel

Antarctica is the largest protected wilderness in the world, with so much to see that we provide three distinct ways to experience the continent. Our Icebreaker Adventures offer itineraries that take you to regions inaccessible to traditional expedition vessels, with aerial sightseeing by onboard helicopters. If you are an active traveler, then choose our Active Adventures with landings and a variety of optional adventures: camping, cross-country skiing, kayaking, overnight kayaking, and mountaineering. If you are a traveler who appreciates a leisurely experience then our Expedition Ships: Adventures in Comfort are the perfect choice.
