Experience all (sub-)Antarctic highlights in one voyage, with spectacular landing sites on the Falkland Islands and
encounters with black-browed albatross and rockhopper penguins.
This voyage includes four days on South Georgia, probably the most beautiful place on earth. Be prepared for ten
thousands of king penguins and their chicks, sea lions on the beaches, elephant seals, wandering albatross and
Gentoo penguins, and great historical sites including the trails of British Polar explorer Ernest Shackleton.
We plan to visit Orcadas station on South Orkney Islands.
If the ice permits we will sail into the Weddell Sea through the ice-clogged Antarctic Sound. Huge tabular icebergs
will announce our arrival to the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula.
We hope you will join our Antarctica adventure and share the discovery of this magnificent continent with us. A once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
