    Falkland, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula

    Falkland, South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula

    Explore the Falkland Islands, fantastic South Georgia, the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula on this extraordinary journey. Our adventure starts with a visit to the fascinating Falkland Islands. The capital of Port Stanley with its quaint English architecture is on our list as well as landings and wildlife viewing on pristine and protected beaches. Our next stop is South Georgia, one of the world's greatest natural wonders. Wildlife-rich beaches, active research stations, former whaling stations and a visit to Shackleton's final resting place are on the agenda for the next few days. From here, we plot our course toward the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. In the South Shetland Islands we will make Zodiac landings at penguin rookeries, research stations and fascinating viewpoints. The sub-Antarctic islands and Antarctic Peninsula are a nature photographer's paradise and we will attempt as many landings per day as weather conditions permit to bring you close to the beauty of Antarctica. After leaving Antarctica behind, we will spend the last sea days bird watching from the top deck and attending interesting lectures, and workshops in one of the ship's lounges as we cross the Drake Passage and sail back to Ushuaia.

    During your first day at sea, you'll get to know your ship properly and follow some mandatory information briefings.
