Highlights

  • Perfect your wildlife photography skills, as you witness colonies of penguins in the thousands. Try and spot the largest albatross colony in the world in the Falklands.
  • Learn about the epic journey of survival that Sir Ernest Shackleton undertook onboard the Endurance, finishing in South Georgia. You will have the chance to visit his grave. Enjoy sub-Antarctica scenery and an abundance of wildlife.
  • Cross the rarely visited Antarctic Circle - reaching latitude 66°33’S. Explore the Antarctic Peninsula and keep your eyes peeled for migrating humpback whales.

Embark on a 23-day epic expedition visiting the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula’s furthermost reaches, including crossing the hardly ever visited Antarctic Circle. Setting sail on one of the longest Antarctica trips available, you’ll get to see absolutely everything that the White Continent has to offer.

Explore ‘The End of the World’, marveling at ice floes and glaciers. Visit the wildlife mecca that is South Georgia and see colonies of thousands of king penguins. Watch out for soaring albatross, whales migrating and seals seeking their next meal as you pass by icebergs and towering ice shelves. The ultimate achievement of this expedition will be reaching latitude 66°33’S, crossing the legendary Antarctic Circle, an experience very few adventurers have been lucky enough to partake in.

The onboard expedition team are ready to get you out in zodiac boats to explore the continent and while you are at sea and onboard the ship you will take part in interesting and educational presentations. Enjoy optional experiences including day paddling among the ice, expert workshops to hone your photography skills, and camping on the ice, marveling at the stars and the silence as you spend the night hunkering down.

Prepare yourself for an amazing journey, one that’s sure to be the trip of a lifetime.

Itinerary Day to Day

Day 1

Ushuaia

Welcome to Ushuaia, Argentina – the gateway to the Great White Continent and the world’s southernmost city. Once you arrive at your hotel, you’re free to explore. Tonight, you’ll have the option to meet your fellow travelers for an optional icebreaker. If you have some spare time, maybe head downtown for some early souvenir shopping or taste some classic Argentinian flavors at one of the local restaurants.

Ushuaia is affectionately known as ‘The End of the World’, so you can really soak up that unforgettable I’m-so-far-from-home moment among the impressive backdrop of snow-capped mountains. If you meet some fellow travelers along the way, why not hit a cosy dinner spot or local bar and theorize on what your upcoming adventure may hold?

Please note: An arrival transfer from the airport on Day 1 is included in your voyage fare
