Jutting icebergs with dancing stripes of electric blue, penguins preening and paddling, the cool fresh air as you cut through the frosty ocean. Antarctica is an experience like no other. The beauty, the wildlife, and the history of the majestic “White Continent” cast a spell that is hard to escape.
But not all Antarctica experiences are created equal. Planning the one that is right for you involves understanding a wide variety of ship options, differing itineraries with a range of experiences, learning opportunities and activities. Kensington’s team of polar experts are intimately versed on the ever-changing options and dedicated to planning an experience tailored to your travel style. We’ll gladly also customize the best pre and post-cruise tours and hotels, to make this trip unforgettable.
As a starting point, we are offer three different travel categories, each with multiple ship options:
Discovery Series is ideal for the first-time cruiser to Antarctica, and will give you a sense of what the untamed continent has to offer. We have different itineraries and ship types available to experience this beautiful destination, including the option to fly over the Drake Passage and board your cruise ship upon arrival to Antarctica.
In-depth Series is ideal for those who have more time, a desire to experience the destination more intimately, and a passion to see the largest penguins in the world - the Emperor and King Penguins - of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Islands. We offer you the option to follow the route of the famous explorers who first discovered Antarctica, sailing the path of their voyage, as well as traveling to Antarctica from different continents.
Unrivaled Antarctica Series is ideal for those looking for a custom-made experience. You’ll have complete control over what you’d like to do and when you’d like to do it. Fly the Drake Passage by private plane, sail it by a big ship or to cross it by private yacht - it’s your choice. All of these can be an easy voyage or a more complete adventure. Just let us know what you expect, and we will make it happen.
