Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctic Peninsula
This Antarctic cruise takes you to the wildlife sanctuaries of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, then on to the Antarctic Peninsula. Join our onboard photography workshops, capture the region's untouched beauty and meet the fascinating fauna that inhabits this unique polar world: get up-close with one of the world's largest king penguin rookeries at Salisbury Plain in South Georgia, watch male elephant seals fight for territory in the Falklands, or spot humpback whales on Zodiac excursions! Around the Antarctic Peninsula cruise among majestic icebergs and at the foot of soaring glaciers to photograph the incredible convergence of life in the water, on land and in the air.
Our Antarctica cruise ship is warm and comfortable and our expert crew of naturalists and historians will entertain you with amazing lectures that compliment your Antarctica tour. Your vessel is designed with a special X-BOW that will cut through the swell and make a quicker passage through the waves. Journeys by Zodiac will allow you to touch down on the ice and experience the natural inhabitants up close. After a busy day of activities relax in the heated saltwater open air swimming pool and jacuzzis and watch the stunning polar landscapes drift by.
