Antarctica ultimate expedition

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

This Highlights of Antarctica Cruise is operated aboard a small ship and in a sustainable way, in line with standards from the International Association of Antarctic Operators (IAATO). The expedition cruise ship meets environmental regulations and protocols are adhered to in every destination visited. 4-stoke outboard engines are used on all Zodiacs, which use less fuel and produce less pollution.

Many of the talks and lectures provided by the ship’s team of experts focus on conservation and the environment, and you are encouraged to return home and share what you’ve learned with loved ones in order to spread the message on the importance of preserving the planet.

All visitors to Antarctica are bound by the Antarctic Treaty and the Protocol and must comply with environmental regulations. Visitors must never disturb the Antarctic wildlife. You cannot touch, feed or do anything to alter the behaviour of animals. Keep noise to a minimum and avoid flash photography. If you keep still and quiet, animals may approach you, however you must never interfere with them. Avoid damaging the unique plant-life. You’ll come across unique moss, lichen and herbs which can take decades to grow, so don’t damage or step on them.

Everyone must undergo rigorous decontamination procedures before stepping on land. Boats, shoes (you’ll be provided with special boots), clothing and equipment must be vacuumed and disinfected to avoid the introduction of new species to the delicate Antarctic ecosystems.

Community

We're proud to be a provider of vacations focused on responsible travel, working with local suppliers who share our dedication to responsible tourism - echoing our values of having a positive impact on the environment, conservation and local communities.

All local guides mentioned in our itineraries are paid a fair wage, from the crew on your Antarctic cruise, to the team of experts on board, to the drivers used for your transfers.

Your Antarctica vacation also supports the Planeterra Foundation, which funds community projects and charities all over the world. At the end of your expedition, the Captain’s Sea Chart is auctioned off, with the proceeds going to the foundation.

We work solely with IAATO registered tour operators who are strongly committed to the preservation of the Antarctic region. All of our partner operators aim to instil a widened understanding of the region and to inspire you to become an environmental advocate for Antarctica.

We hope that all travelers will share their knowledge and experiences when they return home and continue to act as ambassadors for Antarctica. Furthermore, our partner operators donate profits to fund invaluable scientific research in Antarctica and also contribute to environmental charities who raise climate change awareness.
