Antarctica

2014 Prices From $9,265 plus on-tour air for 13 Days - Tauck Cruising

Few experiences can compare to the feeling you'll have as you head off on an expeditionary Antarctica cruise to a magnificent glacial continent that defies description. Your adventure begins with two nights in Buenos Aires, where you'll become acclimated to the local time – and culture – with Tauck. Then it's all aboard two of the newest of Tauck ships, Le Boréal and Le Soléal for a 10-night cruise to an arctic wonderland where the locals, from penguins and seals to myriad seabirds, welcome you ashore with friendly curiosity. Learn about their life and icy habitats from onboard naturalists who educate and inspire on our Antarctica cruise. And at night, enjoy informal chats, onboard lectures, documentary films and warm camaraderie with fellow explorers, the captain and crew. Our December 7 departure introduces Earth Journeys, created by Tauck and BBC Earth. See details here!

    Note: Antarctica features two types of landings in the Antarctic Archipelago. Dry Landings occur when guests step from a Zodiac-style raft on to rocks or a dock. Wet Landings occur when the raft edges on to land and guests step into knee-deep water to wade ashore.

The Tauck Difference

I was very impressed with the naturalist team and enjoyed our daily briefings and the lectures. I learned so much... The diversification of our landings and their histories was fascinating. Every landing was unique – the wildlife, together with the beautiful scenery, was overwhelming. It is locked in my memory forever.
