  • Enjoy an Antarctica expedition without sailing the infamous waters of the Drake Passage.
  • Zodiac along giant glacier faces.
  • Walk alongside Adelie, chinstrap and gentoo penguins.

Fly and cruise on a unique experience that will take you to one of the most remote and beautiful places on earth – Antarctica.

Antarctica is an ecological wonder that bewitches explorers, scientists, and voyagers alike. Getting to know and contemplate this yet unexplored continent has been the goal and dream of many adventurers who are not satisfied with simply imagining what it would feel like to traverse its ice caps and who have made up their minds to visit this wildlife paradise. Antarctica has the singularity of being the only continent remaining hidden from man for the longest period of time; its first visitors arrived at these virgin frozen lands only two hundred years ago. Its beauty contrasts with extreme climate conditions, all of which makes it an exotic destination, truly hypnotizing for those few that reach this far away corner of the universe.

Had a great time at the ice floe edge, 2km from land and nestled amongst a line of ice-bergs trapped by the sea ice. Undoubtedly, the best place we've ever camped.

What an amazing experience!! It was truly the trip of a life time! We were able to photograph a momma bear and her cubs chasing males and many more polar bears! From ground level is a wonderful way to photograph these amazing animals! To be able to look at momma bear and Cubs right in the eyes was just a very emotional moment... I was so sad when we had to leave to go back home.

A big big thank you to Dave, Mike, Jason, Cameron and specially Katie our incredible chef!! All I have to say is I will be back!!!

Had a great time on the ATV tour. Excellent guide Mr. T. Julie was very accommodating and the weather was perfect! All kinds of clothing was offered but I was able to go in my spring jacket and even stayed relatively dry. 4 degrees in August was just right. What an amazing land we have Canada!
Highly recommend Arctic Kingdom.
