Viking Expeditions Antarctica Cruises

A landscape of ice and wonder, Antarctica is the destination for those who have seen everything else! And with Viking Expeditions, guests explore the very tips of the planet in the luxurious comfort Viking is known for. Towering icebergs, massive glaciers and wildlife that cannot be found anywhere else, Antarctica is the last frontier for human discovery, Viking Expeditions is the right way to experience it! Uniquely, each Antarctica cruise is different as the captain can decide where the best place to anchor during the “Explore Antarctica” portion of your itinerary, but no voyage into the southernmost continent would be complete without transiting Drake’s Passage. Watch for whales, penguins and seals or hop on a Zodiac as you venture into icy waters.
