How do I Sail to Antarctica?

Original post: Another World Adventures

If you’d like to visit Antarctica but the idea of a cruise doesn’t rock your boat then we’ve got something very special to share!

A chance to join a small ship sailing expedition in Antarctica is a rare and wonderful thing. Few get the chance to visit under sail and we’re proud to work with a couple of historic sailing ships that make the journey.

Whether you’re already an experienced sailor or an adventure seeker willing to learn and be hands-on then one of our tall ship voyages could be perfect for you.

The voyages set off either from the Falkland Islands, Ushuaia in Argentina or Puerto Williams in Chile on voyages from 22 to 57 days in duration.

We’ve helped many people to realise this dream – could you be next?


Filmmaker Josiah Holwick from Proper Films has made some stunning films from his voyage with one of our tall ships that we’re honoured to share.

The operator is an active member of IAATO, International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators and is a small-scale company that sails with a maximum of 40 guests on an expedition. This offers everyone the opportunity to use the entire landing time for your Antarctic discoveries and creates a wonderful atmosphere on board.

“Learning to sail toward Antartica on the Bark Europa was a truly epic adventure. It was overwhelming the amount of wildlife and action happening simultaneously for 3 weeks straight. I learned so much about sailing, photography, and wildlife from such talented people I had the pleasure to work with. It was a transformational experience that I will forever be grateful for. Thank you James with Focus Wolf Productions and to everyone that helped contribute footage and support my efforts of following my passion of filmmaking.”
