Antarctica, Antarctic Peninsula

For your first ice experience

While the Mediterranean and the Caribbean have their classic charms, an increasing number of adventurous superyacht owners and charterers are looking for an alternative experience and venturing into colder climates to experience the beauty of ice. From the Antarctic Peninsula to the historically treacherous Northwest Passage, there are a variety of destinations depending on how adventurous you want to be.
