Cruise Overview

Antarctica cruise - In-depth Antarctica, Falkland Islands & South Georgia Expedition

Three distinct destination all in one: the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica - with four days in the White Continent. 

Witness a wide variety of iconic wildlife species, including nesting penguins, fur seals and whales. 

Explore the lush green hills of the Falklands and the alpine landscapes of South Georgia, as well as the iceberg-studded seas of Antarctica.

An Antarctic expedition 

We’ll set sail from Chile to explore the unique world of South Georgia and Antarctica. Every day our route will be guided by nature, and we’ll make the best of local conditions. Each sunrise will offer something different and thrilling. In October and November on the Seventh Continent, penguins start courting and nesting. In December and January, the summer brings longer, milder days, and in February and March whales and penguin chicks abound. 

Wild islands of adventure 

The Falkland Islands are windswept and beautiful, and they’re home to a wide variety of wildlife, while South Georgia has colonies of penguins and seals, and is designated an Important Bird Area. It’s a place of spectacular alpine landscapes, fur seal colonies and ghostly, abandoned whaling stations. The weather sets the agenda on these rugged islands, so in true expedition style we’ll adapt to the conditions and have a truly unforgettable adventure.
