The greatest adventure of your life begins where the world ends – in remote, exotic Antarctica.
There is never a dull moment in the White Continent, and our journeys are designed to show you Antarctica at its brightest. Antarctica is suitable and safe for all ages. November – March is summer in Antarctica and the only time you can visit.
Antarctica is best experienced by a cruise or expedition ship. These usually start from the southern tip of South America at Ushuaia. We offer a number of options based on the comfort and adventure you’re looking for.
A journey to Antarctica including international flights from Bangalore starts at approximately Rs. 5 lakhs per person for 10 days.
Antarctica Up Close
The Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands are less than two days’ sailing from mainland South America and Ushuaia, the southernmost town in Argentina. The Peninsula has relatively mild weather conditions with temperatures as high as 10-15 degrees Celsius. This mild climate leads to a proliferation of wildlife and, in ‘summer’, endless twilight.
The months that visits are feasible are the austral summer months of November to March, when daily temperatures average from 25F (-4 degree Celsius) to 45F (7 degree Celsius).
