Antarctic Peninsula luxury travel

Even the most seasoned adventurers are humbled by the staggering and pristine beauty of Antarctica. It’s impossible not to be enchanted by icebergs, glaciers, snow-covered mountaintops, and incredible wildlife.

The Antarctic Peninsula is included on most cruise itineraries, as it is the closest access point from Tierra del Fuego (Argentina and Chile). You can reach the peninsula by crossing the Drake Passage from Ushuaia, on the southernmost tip of South America.

Exploring the Antarctic Peninsula gives you the chance to witness minke and humpback whales at close range, to gaze upon icebergs of every conceivable shape and size in the bays, fjords, and inlets, and to spend time with gregarious penguins. (Snow Hill Island with its magnificent colony lays just off the Peninsula.) Here, travelers may also have the chance to set foot on mainland Antarctica—an important notch on many globetrotters’ belts.

The peninsula also presents opportunities for extreme activity, including kayaking, mountaineering, hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and sleeping out under the stars (a highlight for many guests).
