Hotels are far from conventional in Antarctica. Surprised? A fragile ecosystem where the number of visitors is closely monitored, it’s less a case of permanence and more a case of transience as luxury yachts and cruises sail in and out. Whether you brave the Drake Passage or skip on down to King George Island, there is a vessel to suit every taste. Those searching for something a little more authentic, will find themselves intrigued by a Shackleton-worthy stay in a luxury expedition camp.

Antarctica Highlights

A destination for those aching to uncover the unknown, Antarctica has a mythical beauty to it which takes a first-person perspective to understand and truly appreciate. A place for adventurers, but also for those who enjoy the finer things in life, it’s unlike anywhere else.

Perhaps the key to the perfect Antarctica vacation is making sure you choose the right vessel. All are equipped with the latest ice-navigation technology but run the gamut from larger cruise ships to smaller, luxury yachts. On a larger ship, more people and fewer RIBs can put you at risk of missing the best landings of the voyage stuck onboard - and that simply wouldn’t do. We never want you to miss out and so, our tip is to opt for as small a vessel as possible, therefore maximising your opportunities to head onshore and explore.

For years, accessing Antarctica has meant sailing the notoriously rocky Drake Passage. A testing crossing for even the most accomplished sailor, the ‘Drake Shake’ has never been our favorite way to start a vacation. Instead, find your sea legs on calmer waters by opting to fly direct from Punta Arenas in Chile to King George Island. A two-hour flight that saves you two days at sea, you’ll have plenty more time to explore - and plenty more stomach for it.

Who’s to say you need to stay in Antarctica at all? For those who are pushed for time but itching to tick off the White Continent, there’s always the option of the world’s best day trip. Setting off from Cape Town, South Africa, it’s just a 5-hour flight onboard a private jet down to Antarctica’s interior. Touch down and spend a couple of hours scaling a nunatak or fat biking across the tundra before enjoying a champagne picnic and flying back to Cape Town - just in time for turndown service.

Should you be looking for something more traditionally Antarctic, there’s an answer for that too. Far be it from hotels and resorts, a stay on the White Continent itself comes in the form of luxury expedition camps. Pioneered by the likes of Shackleton and met by the likes of modern-comfort and eco-sensitivity, an expedition camp offers an intimate perspective - all without the frostbite.
