Among the best-kept secrets of Antarctica cruises? Many itineraries incorporate Antarctic and sub-Antarctic islands that are just as remarkable as the White Continent itself. It’s hard to top the so-called “FSG” itinerary, which combines the Antarctic Peninsula with the Falkland Islands and the British Overseas Territory of South Georgia. Lovers of wildlife, history, geography, adventure, and sublime scenery—and that captures most people, wouldn’t you say?—will love this epic Antarctica, South Georgia, and Falkland Islands package, which spans the South Atlantic, the Southern Ocean, and the Scotia Sea in between.

The Falklands, some 250 miles off the coast of Argentine Patagonia, tempt with their ends-of-the-Earth landscapes, their abundant wildlife, and their rich history, including that of the Falklands War. And South Georgia, about 900 miles from the Antarctic Peninsula, bowls any visitor over with snowy peaks rising past 9,000 feet, globally significant colonies of southern elephant seals, southern fur seals, wandering albatrosses, penguins, and other animals, and some stirring heritage. Not least in the latter department is the grave of Ernest Shackleton, who with a few companions trekked across the rugged South Georgia divide to reach the whaling outpost of Stromness and muster help for their stranded crewmates on Elephant Island during the famous 1914-1917 Trans-Antarctic Expedition that involved the sinking of the Endurance.
