Discover Antarctica

Our Antarctica cruises not only take you to this extraordinary continent, we also cruise to two intriguing archipelagos.

Lands of pristine beauty, breathtaking wildlife and inestimable importance, travelling to the base of the globe is a long-held dream for most people.

This is your chance to explore the final frontier that is Antarctica, to go further and dream bigger and to do it in all-inclusive luxury on board the World’s First Discovery Yachts.

A land of vast white landscapes, mountains that have never felt human footfall and an abundance of wildlife that will quite literally take your breath away.

Wake up icebergs floating past your suite’s verandah and spend your days exploring via Zodiac, kayak, helicopter and submarine*.
