An Antarctic yacht charter will allow for two weeks of extreme exploring. Isolated from the rest of the world, your yacht charter offers the most incredible story to tell your friends back home.

Start in the South Shetland Islands with their penguin and elephant seal residents before sailing further south to the Antarctic Sound. As you sail through this ‘Iceberg Alley’ marvel at the way your ice-class explorer yacht crushes the icebergs at its bow.
