Most visitors to Antarctica will arrive on a cruise ship, each of which has its own types of cabins. There are no hotels on the land – camps are run by tour operators.

  • Cruise ships Smaller ships offer far more time ashore, and guests are generally free to wander more. Larger ships offer greater comfort and less movement in heavy seas, and cross the Drake Passage much faster.
  • Yachts A small but growing number of visitors reach Antarctica aboard private vessels: sailboats equipped with auxiliary engines.
  • Camps Several companies offer flights to the mainland, followed by guided adventures, staying at their camps.
