  • Explore the quaint British town of Stanley in the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas).
  • Follow in the wake of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s perilous voyage to South Georgia and visit his grave site.
  • Become one of the few to have ever crossed the Antarctic Circle and celebrate with a toast.

This epic Antarctica voyage is called so for a reason—it includes all of the major Antarctic highlights you can imagine. From the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) and South Georgia, to crossing the Drake Passage to reach the Antarctic Peninsula and Circle, you will have countless unforgettable moments. This itinerary also allows you to experience Antarctica aboard the pioneering new vessel, Ultramarine. This purpose-built vessel is designed to extend the boundaries of polar exploration and offer an unmatched Antarctic experience, including a flightseeing tour you’ll never forget and a range of adventure options more extensive than any other ship in its class.

Start your adventure-packed, 23-day voyage with the wildlife-rich Falklands archipelago, reminiscent of both sandy Cape Cod and the English moors, home to albatross, dolphins, and five species of penguins. Discover South Georgia–a popular stop for many historic Antarctic expeditions and once a centre for whale– and seal–hunting—where you’ll enter the home of 300,000 breeding king penguins, 50 million other seabirds and 5 million seals. Then, explore the stunning Antarctic Peninsula, and finally cross the Antarctic Circle—a significant milestone for any world traveler. If that wan’t enough, along the way you’ll also enjoy presentations on wildlife, history, glaciology & geology by onboard polar experts to enrich your journey even further.
