For a travel destination that offers the ultimate in amazing adventure and breathtaking vistas, it is hard to top Antarctica. This place manages to be a unique combination: a locale with unrivaled beauty and natural wonders that has been largely undiscovered and untouched by the touring public.
Known as “the last continent,” Antarctica has been a destination off-limits to all but a special few, which in the past mainly consisted of researchers, scientists and extreme adventure buffs.
However, that is no longer necessarily the case. Travelers who yearn to explore new horizons and venture into regions that are way off the beaten path—and not swarmed with tourists—will be thrilled to know that they can now book a trip to this snowy wonderland.
Silversea Cruises has now made Antarctica more accessible to the public. And who says you have to rough it when exploring a faraway, mostly undisturbed land? Silversea's luxury Antarctica cruises let you tour the region in style. You will relax in plush accomodations while having an enviable vantage point from which to enjoy these incredible scenes.
Silversea currently has 32 different Antarctica cruise options available for you to consider, with departure dates running all the way until December 2018. The cruises range from 10 to 23 days in length, so you have plenty of options and can choose the one that works best for your schedule, budget, thirst for adventure, or tolerance for cold weather environments.
