Antarctic Voyage to the Late Summer Sun


Departure date
24 days

Cruise Overview

24-day adventure to Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falklands and Buenos Aires, setting sail from Patagonia’s Punta Arenas

Go ice and fjord-cruising in small expedition boats and join landings with the expert Expedition Team.

Visit the Falkland Islands and South Georgia when the penguin colonies are at their most raucous.

The best time of year for whale watching, seeing snow algae and colourful sunsets in Antarctica.

Amazing Antarctic wildlife 

Explore the awe-inspiring frozen continent during peak whale watching season, when larger numbers and different species come to feed on krill. It’s also the time when penguin chicks are learning to swim and feed themselves, and when the late summer sunsets paint the icescapes in palettes of pink and orange. 

Southern Ocean islands of wonder 

From windswept green hills and the white-sand beaches, there is much beauty and charm in the Falkland Islands. And while the wildlife here is plentiful, South Georgia is in a class of its own, and the beaches heave with seals, penguins and other seabirds. From here we’ll head to beautiful Buenos Aires, for one last tango.
