Antarctica Expeditions

Venturing to Antarctica is an expedition like no other—a chance to explore otherworldly beauty at the bottom of the globe. Lindblad Expeditions brought the first travelers to Antarctica more than five decades ago and, since that pioneering voyage, we have developed unmatched expertise in exploring this legendary region, allowing us to provide the safest and most in-depth experience possible. As you explore in wildlife-rich waters, you’ll discover a kingdom of sculpted snow and ice, endless colonies of penguins, and pods of breaching whales. Each day brings new discoveries with the flexibility to explore by kayak, Zodiac, or on foot alongside our veteran expedition team. 

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.

Our Team in Antarctica

Every member of our team—from our naturalists and photographers to our expedition leaders—is committed to ensuring you have an unforgettable experience. Many are veteran polar guides who have exclusively worked with us for decades, chosen for their extensive knowledge of subjects like geology, wildlife biology, and climate science, including mountaineers, NASA scientists, and marine archaeologists. Exploring in small groups, you’ll hear different perspectives each day of your voyage, and because there are no assigned groups you can gravitate toward the experts who share your interests and inspire your curiosity. 

Our knowledgeable and passionate expedition team is complemented by our dedicated hotel team who strives to ensure that your time on board is as comfortable and rewarding as your time on shore.
