South Georgia & Antarctic Polar Circle
Visit the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and Antarctic Peninsula - plus the Polar Circle on this complete cruise! The expedition cruise explores one of the last untamed areas on Earth – a land of ruggedly beautiful landscapes and amazing wildlife. On the Falkland Islands, bird life is plentiful, and dolphins and seals can be seen in the surrounding waters. Witness albatross chicks and parents on their nest in South Georgia, or visit one of the world's largest fur seal breeding beaches. At Elephant Island imagine the desperate time that Shackleton and his crew endured during their heroic rescue. Approaching the Antarctic Peninsula ice becomes a common sight, and it flanks our cruise ship as we delve further south to the Antarctic Circle.
The days spent in Antarctica are filled with Zodiac and shore excursions to witness the plentiful life of penguins, Humpback whales, leopard seals and vast populations of birds. Most are gloriously indifferent to your camera's lens. This epic cruise ticks all the boxes plus you will be comfortable and well looked after onboard the Hondius, a new and advanced Polar Class 6 cruise ship, perfectly designed for these Antarctic waters.
