The South Georgia and Antarctica air-cruise allows you to sail through the nutrient-rich waters and, each day, disembark with your expert polar guides having time to either hike, snowshoe, or kayak in bays nearby. As you make your way to South Georgia, you will follow in the footsteps of famous Antarctic explorers, like Ernest Shackleton, and learn about their intrepid southerly journeys. After reaching South Georgia, visit some of the largest colonies of penguins in the world, including the king penguin, and see the nesting grounds of thousands of albatrosses.
