Highlights

  • Experience the magnificent wildlife and hear tales of the fascinating history of South Georgia.
  • Become one of the very few to reach the South Sandwich Islands – a corner of the world rarely visited by travelers.
  • Enjoy Zodiac excursions in secluded bays and quiet coves filled with brash ice and photograph enormous glaciers and spectacularly shaped icebergs in various shades of blue.

On this epic voyage, not only will you explore the famed white continent, enjoy two days discovering the Falklands~Malvinas, encounter the wildlife haven in South Georgia, you will also sail to the South Sandwich Islands, a chain of seldom-visited volcanic islands located 740 kilometres (460 miles) south-east of South Georgia. Simply reaching these wild, far-flung islands is an adventure.
