Antarctic Cruise Holidays

Antarctic Cruises

Gane and Marshall are agents for Hurtigruten Cruises and Oceanwide Expeditions, centres of excellence for cruises to the Arctic, the Norway fjords, and the Antarctic.

Journey to the last frontier on Earth - the vast, white expanse of Antarctica. Here you will be surprised at the abundance of wildlife that has made this harsh continent, the most remote on Earth, home.

The most popular Antarctic cruises vary in duration from 10 to 20 days and depart from Ushuaia, south Argentina, from November through to March. Shorter voyages visit the Antarctic Peninsula with its dramatic scenery of huge icebergs and glaciers and an abundance of tame wildlife, unaffected by human contact.

The longer voyages include visits to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, South Orkney Islands as well as the Antarctic Peninsula. These Antarctic cruises combine history, scenery and wildlife – you will see the greatest concentration of Polar wildlife in the southern hemisphere, including the largest king penguin colonies on the planet!
