Steppes Travel has been offering voyages to the Antarctic for the past 10 years. Our specialists for Antarctica, have all travelled down to the Antarctic Peninsula as have a number of other lucky staff members. Between them they have either sailed on or inspected every vessel we offer and know the expedition staff and the various nuances between the boats.
The immense ice-shrouded wilderness of Antarctica is a winter wonderland which defies our senses. Its incomparable scenery, exotic cast of wildlife and rich history beckon those with an appetite for adventure.
To fully appreciate this magnificent continent you really need to experience it up close, which is why we recommend an Antarctic cruise, travelling aboard a small expeditionary ship, exploring yet further with the use of smaller, inflatable Zodiacs. Accompanied by a member of the onboard expeditionary staff, each zodiac landing provides a series of unique experiences, whether it is the amazing scenery or an enthralling encounter of penguins, seals or whales.
For those travellers wishing to, optional adventure activities are available on selected departures, including Antarctic ice camping, Antarctic Sea kayaking, cross-country skiing and ice climbing.
Choose from a range of Antarctic cruises operating throughout the Antarctic summer, ranging from the Classic Antarctic cruise to the more detailed Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica cruise, or for those with less time the Antarctic Fly and Cruise is the best option, all of which have frequent departures from November to the end of March. For those wanting to explore deeper then consider the Weddell Sea or Ross Sea voyages.
