Cute penguins walking in front of Antarctic glaciers

Antarctica and South Georgia

Antarctica may be the most challenging cruising ground for any expedition yacht, but it offers the right vessel the most incredible experience.

A couple of days sail or a short flight south from Cape Horn is the Antarctic Peninsula, where you will find your yacht surrounded by snow, ice and penguins.

Surprisingly mild temperatures and the 24-hour sunlight of the Austral summer afford wildlife viewing is at its best. Cruise among unworldly icebergs with seals and whales, land at penguin colonies, visit scientific research stations and gaze in awe of the most incredible scenery on the planet.

On your way to or from Antarctica, explore some of the wild islands of the Southern Ocean such as South Georgia or the Falkland Islands.

Some vessels may even be able to reach colonies of Emperor Penguins that breed on floating ice, or visit the Ross Sea and the huts built by Scott and Shackleton on their quests to reach the South Pole.

Visit the South Pole

Follow in Scott and Shackleton’s footsteps and visit the South Pole yourself. EYOS can arrange for an aircraft to take you there!
