This Antarctic cruise encompasses the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula on board a comfortable, fit for purpose vessel and escorted by our experienced and knowledgeable crew.

Starting in the Falkland Islands, a remote and rugged land populated by hardy people and immense populations of albatrosses, penguins and many other seabirds. The secluded and isolated environment makes it a bird watcher's paradise. Our Antarctica cruise continues to South Georgia, amidst the dramatic Southern Ocean seascape, where we find world-famous beaches teaming with jousting elephant seals, raucous fur seals, & stately king penguins. Humpback whales are a common sight in the polar waters. Trips ashore accompanied by our crew of Antarctic explorers allow for even closer experiences with the native fauna.
Around the South Shetland Islands & the Antarctic Peninsula, we will explore a pristine polar wilderness of singular beauty, complete with bustling penguin colonies, seals, whales and breathtaking scenery of icebergs, mountains and glaciers. Wildlife encounters of this magnitude will make this Antarctic cruise a trip of a lifetime.
