Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica
Take an Antarctica cruise like no other, aboard an ice-strengthened vessel that is tailor-made for the Polar expedition. These cruise vessels have comfortable accommodation for 100 to 114 passengers, as well as excellent guest facilities.
On this Antarctic expedition, you will visit the fascinating Falkland Islands, where you can learn about their extraordinary history, as well as having close encounters with many species of birds and penguins. Travelling to South Georgia and the South Orkney Islands the native wildlife is everywhere. Seals and elephant seals laze on shorelines, ice floes and even in an abandoned village, seabirds skip across the water, humpback whales surface among icebergs and penguins in countless numbers swim and play. Continuing on your Antarctica cruise to the Antarctic Peninsula the scenery is beyond comparison. The cruise vessel weaves among icebergs in the Weddell Sea and snow-capped mountains and glaciers are flanked by even more local fauna. There is also the possibility to step ashore on the frozen continent and witness the majesty of the Polar region up close. This Antarctic cruise is truly a once in a lifetime experience that is not to be missed.
