Highlights

  • Explore the charming British town of Stanley in the Falklands, wander the island, and spot nesting albatrosses and a range of penguin species.
  • Witness the amazing vistas of Antarctica during daily Zodiac excursions and paid add-on activities including kayaking, day paddling and camping.
  • Marvel at the huge King penguin colonies in South Georgia, learn about Sir Earnest Shackleton's epic journey, and visit his grave.

On this three-week voyage of a lifetime, you will follow the path of the famed survivalist, Sir Ernest Shackleton. Explore the White Continent of Antarctica, the Falkland Islands and South Georgia, following a similar route to the expedition that Shackleton and his men took, many years ago onboard the Endurance.

Antarctica is a land of rugged landscapes and home to a wide range of amazing wildlife. Hone your photography skills and enjoy excursions by Zodiac through ice floes, as well as landings on the continent to explore further on foot. One of the highlights of the trip will be walking among thousands of King Penguins on the island of South Georgia. Onboard the ship you will be regaled with stories of Shackleton and his men, as well as educational lectures by the expert expedition team.

Keep a look out for seals, seabirds and the mighty mammals, humpback whales, scanning the horizon from both land and sea. Witness bright-blue glaciers and massive ice bergs from the ship and by Zodiac and take part in some of the optional activities, such as kayaking, photography workshops and ice camping under the stars.

This adventure will appeal to anyone who loves history, wildlife, and nature, and you will take home many memories to cherish forever.
