The Great White Continent
Tour Antarctica, the great white continent and see one of the last wild places on earth and home to the world's greatest concentration of wildlife. Largely unchanged since the early explorers, it’s home to the world’s greatest concentration of wildlife, where penguins, seals and whales are the only permanent residents.
Gaze up at magnificent icebergs, explore islands guided by various species of penguin including chinstrap, gentoo and Adélie. Experience the awe-inspiring king penguin rookeries of South Georgia, the “Galapagos of the Poles,” as well as the incredible wealth of untamed wildlife in the unique and diverse archipelagos of the Southern Ocean.
Enrich your experience with adventure options including gliding among icebergs in kayaks, cross-country skiing the primordial shores or climbing to unparalleled views.
What Our Clients Are Saying
"Loved tour - everything went wonderfully, except for our pick up in USH for the cruise. We were supposed to be picked up at 3:30 but called to check in at 4:00. They were there in 10 minutes, but we arrived 1/2 hour before the cruise departure. Had a bit of weather and missed Cape Horn and didn’t get to see whales but had an amazing time anyway! Loved Loved EcoCamps! Will always use and recommend Yampu!"
"It is difficult to put into words that will mean anything just how spectacular our Antarctica trip was. It is certainly a destination relatively few will have the good fortune to enjoy. All our friends asked us, “Why do you want to go to Antarctica?” I couldn’t really answer before I left to those who do not travel much. However, now I can say it is the ultimate wilderness, probably one of the few left on earth.
The Expedition Crew was superlative. Their lectures onboard were both interesting and informative and this expertise was extended as they manned the zodiacs and continued to educate us on land.
The flights Yampu selected for us were very good. Yampu’s Ushuaia partner was fantastic – my highest commendations go out to them – delivering our bag to us AFTER the ship had left port. One more reason booking with Yampu pays in the long run.
People always ask us, “Why do you deal with people in the US?” My answer is simple – Yampu pays attention to our needs beyond anything I have seen elsewhere. They are there with suggestions and improvements and are always one step ahead. They put a network of companies in affect that look after the customer every step of the way. When things go wrong they are there with a solution. Somewhere in the vast network of travel today mistakes will happen. The true measure of an unbeatable company is how they solve those problems if and when they happen.
This was our fourth major trip with Yampu and in our case they have been flawless. That speaks volumes – why would we go anywhere else? I know the fine work ethic is your doing Jose as you have assembled a core of like-minded professionals. My Tilley hat is off to you!"
