The final frontier, very few people get even close to this, the driest, remotest and most inhospitable of the world’s continents. Follow in the footsteps of Scott and Shackleton and re-live the drama and excitement of exploring the unknown. Only accessible during the austral summer months of November to March, expedition boats take 40 hours to make the crossing from Ushuaia to the tip of the peninsula. It is also possible to fly one or both ways to avoid this crossing. On arrival you find yourself in a totally unique environment, brilliant white cliffs of snow and ice tower above you, seals can be seen basking in the sun while the resident penguin community waddles to the water’s edge to meet you. Expert naturalist guides accompany you as you explore on foot or by boat.
