Travel With Us to The Most Amazing Places on Earth

Travel in Comfort. Top Rated Expeditions. Luxurious Retreats. A Perfect Place for a Dream Vacation.

The extraordinary accomplishments of polar explorers change from year to year but the depth of their ambition and individual journeys does not. Explorers have been ticking off the mystical South Pole for years, setting records and inspiring those to come. Antarctica is a place of unspoiled beauty and deafening silence across striking landscapes. A place where the great white continent doesn't distinguish between gender or position but where the playing field is leveled to test strength, endurance and resolve among its travelers. Polar explorers are part of an elite group of adventurers from all corners of the globe, and ALE is a proud logistics provider to those who make their way to the ice. This is not a race to the ends of the Earth, but an exploration in life and a pilgrimage for each one of us.

ALE is the leader in deep-field polar adventures and is experienced in creating memorable expeditions that cater to all levels. Not everyone experiences the expanse of Antarctica, but those who do experience a life-changing journey with our team of long trusted experts. The addictive and ethereal landscape is home to our comfortable base camps and exclusive Three Glaciers Retreat where adventurers can experience their choice of excursions from scenic flights, skiing glaciers, picnicking in remote places, visits to the South Pole and Gould Bay Emperor Penguin Colony, or taking a ride on a fat-tire bike. Additional tours include snowmobiling, skydiving, or a touring in our heated Tucker Sno-Cats. Our 5 Antarctic camps are the launching pad for your personalized trip itinerary whether you are going for your own record-breaking expedition or taking a digital-detox exploring truly remote wilderness with dramatic backdrops. We invite you to experience more of what Antarctica has to offer through our customized trips and bespoke experiences.
