Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica
Challenge. Desolation. Unlimited wonder. It’s not difficult to grasp what attracted the great explorers to Antarctica. Get a personal appreciation for the struggle to tame the bottom of the world on this 22-day adventure to the land that entranced Ernest Shackleton and countless others since. Down here, you’ll explore the Falkland Islands, encounter abandoned whaling stations on South Georgia Island, and pay your respects at Shackleton’s grave. Elsewhere, you’ll catch up with penguins (king, chinstrap, gentoo, and Adélie varieties), learn all about them through daily lectures, get close to whales and cavorting seals from a Zodiac boat, and keep an eye peeled for towering icebergs and massive glaciers. Prepare to be astonished.

Highlights
Meet hardy locals and see unique wildlife in the Falkland Islands, explore abandoned whaling stations and visit Shackleton’s grave, walk quietly amongst king penguins and watch them surf onto the beach, learn about the environment and ecology from industry experts, spot whales and seals while cruising through icebergs on Zodiacs
