The Great White Continent, Antarctica, holds the rather dubious title of the coldest, driest and windiest continent on the planet, yet Antarctica tours and cruises which reveal the dramatic extremes of this breathtakingly beautiful and frozen continent are immensely popular and offer amazing travel experiences that tours to other destinations can’t touch.
From up-close encounters with myriad species of wildlife among the blue icebergs floating serenely in the surrounding waters to the soaring rock faces and snow-capped peaks that seem to hail from another world, our Antarctica cruises take you through our world’s last true frontier in comfort and style. And with adventure tours ranging in length from six to twenty-three days, South America Tours’ Antarctica expeditions have something to offer everyone looking to experience first-hand the exhilarating landscapes that adventurers and explorers like Shackleton risked their lives to conquer

Our tours enable you to experience the Great White Continent like never before, not only taking you through the Antarctic Peninsula to highlights such as South Georgia, Le Maire Chanel and Elephant Island, but getting you up close with penguins, seals and whales and immersing you in the captivating scenery that is Antarctica.
