Cruise Overview

Antarctica cruise | Antarctica & Falkland Islands Expedition

Spend five days exploring the frozen beauty of Antarctica during the penguins' courting and nesting season before heading north to the Falklands. 

Active adventure brings you close to icebergs, with opportunities to go hiking, kayaking, and even camping on the Antarctic ice. 

In the Falklands, land on scenic beaches and follow grassland trails to get close to the wildlife, and visit the capital Stanley.

The frozen continent 

Sail iceberg-filled waters as we journey from Ushuaia to Antarctica and the Falkland Islands. Spot penguins, seals and whales along the way. As always, nature is in charge. We’ll monitor conditions to give you the best adventure possible, including kayaking, ice-cruising, hiking and more. 

The remote Falkland Islands

Explore the rolling green hills and white sands of the picturesque Falklands archipelago. A warm welcome awaits you in the capital Stanley. You’ll also visit the albatross, penguin and seal colonies that thrive on these remote shores.
