Tour Description

An epic Antarctica adventure that leaves you wanting for nothing more. This 20-day comprehensive expedition combines the best of the White Continent with the most coveted highlights along the way: the historic and remote Falkland Islands as well as South Georgia, the reputed ‘wildlife creche of the south’. This formidable round-trip doesn’t backtrack and is designed to include the most remote and lesser visited sites, ones that have been left untamed, unspoiled and unbelievably rewarding. Enjoy up-close encounters with jaw-dropping colonies of penguins and seals, keep your eyes peeled for pods of humpback, orca and minke whales swimming by and enjoy a truly immersive wilderness experience at the very southern end of our planet. If it’s an unparalleled and uncompromising visit to Antarctica you’re after, then consider it found. This itinerary delivers more wildlife encounters than perhaps any other so it’s ideal for photographers and animal-lovers alike.

One of the longest and most comprehensive itineraries on Antarctica tours departing Ushuaia, this 3-week expedition is among the most coveted and offers a wealth of optional activities (which should be booked ahead of time) including SUP boarding, kayaking and cross-country skiing, as well as visits to Sir Ernest Shackleton’s gravesite and sightseeing tours of historic sites in the Falklands.
