Antarctica Expeditions

Guests exploring by zodiac and kayaks see a blue ice arch/blue iceberg up close, at Niko Harbor, Antarctic Peninsula, Southern Ocean, Antarctica.

Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic offers travelers an 8, 9, and 10-Day option for our Antarctica Direct: Fly the Drake Passage journeys. Each option offers the most time-efficient travel to and from Antarctica, with a two hour flight each way eliminating the cruise across the Drake Passage. Join us aboard our intimately scaled, National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion vessels, ships purpose-built for polar waters.

On my first visit to Antarctica, I didn't sleep for two days - I was so mesmerized as our ship crunched through the sea ice. It was unending ice. The size, the shapes, the color.
