Towering Icebergs, Thousands of Penguins, and Tales of Shackleton

Overview

Experience three epic destinations of the Southern Ocean: the wildlife-rich oasis of the Falkland Islands, breathtaking South Georgia Island, with its legends of Shackleton and massive colonies of king penguins, and the celebrated Antarctic Peninsula, a dazzling realm of glaciers, icebergs, and towering peaks rising straight from the sea. On this small-ship expedition cruise to an incredible land, adventures by go-anywhere Zodiacs grant you fantastic access to hidden bays full of drifting bergs and shores thronged with chattering penguins and basking elephant seals, while expert naturalists and historians illuminate the mesmerizing world of the Antarctic.

It was the thrill of a lifetime to visit the Falklands and South Georgia in addition to Antarctica. The Zodiac rides were great and the staff was always making every effort for us to see and do everything.
