Why Antarctica?

When a world of sparkling ice castles, bustling penguin rookeries, expansive sunsets, and giant barnacled whales is beckoning, the question isn't 'why Antarctica', but when...

Experience the magic for yourself. Explore ice-choked waterways by zodiac boat as seals and penguins dart around you, step foot on snowy beaches and ascend marble slopes to breathtaking views, wake up to icebergs floating past your porthole. It's hard to do justice to the depth of the experience. It is a sensory awakening, an emotive reconnection with nature, and a reminder of the power and beauty of nature on a scale rarely witnessed. 

Adventure is waiting, and it's more unforgettable and special than you could imagine. Now you just need to figure out what your adventure looks like...

Who are Swoop?

We're a group of wilderness-seekers, always searching for the road less travelled. We've been lucky enough to visit the ends of the earth for many years, and our network of partners and guides across Antarctica are as much friends as they are colleagues.

For us, adventure has always been a process of discovery, not only of our planet and its many hidden gems, but of ourselves. We believe that unforgettable adventures can change perspectives, so we've started out on our journey towards reducing our impact, and the impact of our customers, on the natural world we all enjoy.
