Cross south of the Antarctic Circle and take the true polar plunge, a place rarely visited by travellers. This intrepid Antarctic cruise takes you to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, the Antarctic Peninsula and then, conditions permitting, south of the Antarctic Circle. Each destination offers up spectacular scenery, and at this time of year sea and land are alive with abundant life. In the Falkland Islands the hills teem with bird life and the bays are full of marine mammals. At South Georgia the horizon is dominated by imposing mountain ranges and King penguins congregate in their hundreds of thousands. Around the Antarctic Peninsula icebergs drift along glassy waters, a silent icon in a world bustling with penguins, seals, whales and sea birds.
Throughout your Antarctic cruise, you will explore by Zodiac cruise and on shore excursions, as well as having the option to kayak or even snorkel in the polar depths! The Antarctica cruise ship, Greg Mortimer, is a purpose-built polar vessel fitted to the highest level of comfort, and our experienced crew will guide you throughout every aspect of your Antarctica cruise.
