Follow in the footsteps of the early Antarctic explorers on an expedition cruise to Antarctica. The world's southernmost continent features breathtaking natural scenery and is rich in extraordinary wildlife on and around its vast ice mass. Luxury cruises are available to the Antarctic Peninsula from Ushuaia in Argentina, or Punta Arenas in Chile, offering the chance to discover glaciers and the Antarctic iceshelf by kayak and on foot with expert naturalist guides. Some of our favourite small luxury cruise ships include Ponant's L'Austral, Scenic Eclipse, Silversea and the Magellan Explorer. If you're short on time and can't fit Antarctica into your itinerary, consider a shorter cruise in Patagonia from Ushuaia to Punta Arenas, or a luxury cruise in Glaciers National Park near El Calafate.
