About Antarctic Travel

A place of dreams and exploration where you journey beyond everyday experience

To visit Antarctica is to travel beyond everyday experience and to achieve the extraordinary. Explore a land of stark beauty and unlimited horizons, a world of snow and sky and air so clear you feel you can touch the mountains. There is simply nowhere like it on earth.

Beyond Antarctica's Coastline

ANI takes you deep into the interior of Antarctica, way beyond where cruise ships ply and most Antarctic visitors go. You fly 1,870 miles (3010km) from Punta Arenas, Chile, to land on a runway deep in Antarctica's heartland – further than London to St. Petersburg or Los Angeles to Chicago.

Enjoy magnificent surroundings at a relaxed pace on one of our fly-in adventures. Or choose the extreme adventure and physical challenge of a ski or climbing expedition. Whatever your goal, our experienced guides and staff bring the incredible within reach and support you every step of the way. More on our Experiences

You don’t have to be an athlete

Our trips are very do-able for anyone with average fitness and good health. You don’t have to be super fit or have camping experience to enjoy our fly-in adventures. Our guides help you settle in and ensure your comfort on the ice.

If you want something more strenuous, join one of our ski and climbing expeditions. These require minimum levels of fitness and experience with guidelines provided for each trip. Custom Expeditions are available for individuals or groups with specific goals or special needs. Minimum age for travel on all Experiences is 16 years.

Keeping Safe and Well

Travel to remote and undeveloped regions poses inherent risks and Antarctica is no exception. Keeping safe and well in Antarctica is very important to us. Our established infrastructure and organized approach, developed through years of experience, ensures that risks are minimized. More about Safety and medical support

Protecting Antarctica

Antarctica is protected under the Antarctic Treaty, as a natural reserve dedicated to peace and science. ANI’s mission is to set the highest possible environmental standards. We believe in responsible and sustainable tourism where our guests leave Antarctica with a greater appreciation of its remarkable natural values.
