Classic Antarctica Expedition

Discover the Wildlife Wonders of the World's Last Best Wilderness
Antarctica. The name alone is epic. No place is more synonymous with adventure, extremes, and pristine wilderness. Though rumored to exist even among the ancient Greeks, Antarctica had no documented sightings by humans until 1820. The most intrepid expeditions in history penetrated its inner reaches just a century ago. Today, its white wonders are within reach of anyone with an explorer’s spirit. Our small ships cruise among colossal icebergs and giant whales, while tens of thousands of penguins congregate ashore. Antarctica arguably supersedes any place on earth in provoking a traveler’s awe, and no less now than for Shackleton or Amundsen.
Natural Habitat Adventures offers departures aboard a carefully chosen selection of independently operated small ships. Please visit the Ships page for details on the ships that made the grade!  We recognize that different people have different tastes and budgets, so we provide a wide variety of vessels, itineraries and price options for independent travelers that are ensured to suit your needs. Our experienced Adventure Specialists are unbiased and have collectively embarked on a great number of Antarctica expedition cruises. Allow us to help you explore the many options to determine which Antarctica cruise right for you. Call us at 1-800-543-8917.
