Take your place among Antarctica’s boldest explorers

Embark on a new voyage made possible by the extreme ice capabilities of our new expedition ship, National Geographic Endurance. Discover the seventh continent as few have or ever will. Venture into the epic landscapes of remote West Antarctica, where we are sure to set foot on ice no other humans have. See the prolific wildlife and impressive ice shelf of the Ross Sea region. Walk among a colony of hundreds of thousands of king penguins and be among the few to have shared a beach with endemic royal penguins. By special permit, explore the sub-Antarctic islands of New Zealand and Australia, World Heritage sites for the thousands of seals and millions of penguins, including huge colonies of king and royal penguins. This is wildness and wildlife at its finest, portions of which were seen before only by the likes of Scott, Ross, Amundsen, and Shackleton.

  • Discover four stunningly beautiful wilderness regions aboard the ultimate polar ship, which provides unprecedented access, opens up unexplored opportunities in polar environments, and makes polar travel safe, smooth, thrilling, and luxurious

  • See the big tabular icebergs of the Antarctic Peninsula, remote West Antarctica, and the spectacular Ross Ice Shelf

  • Explore seldom-seen sub-Antarctic islands of New Zealand and Australia that are wildlife havens

  • Paddle a kayak in pristine bays, and Zodiac cruise amid the bergs

  • Observe endemic royal penguins, gentoo, and southern rockhopper penguins, and 100,000 pairs of king penguins on a single beach
