Departing from Ushuaia in Argentina, our first adventure will be a visit to the fascinating Falkland Islands. The capital of Port Stanley with its quaint English architecture is on the list as well as Zodiac landings and wildlife observations on pristine beaches. Your next stop is South Georgia Island, which is one of the world’s greatest natural wonders. Wildlife-packed beaches, active research stations, former whaling stations and a visit to Shackleton’s final resting place are on the agenda for the following 5 days. From here your expedition cruise continues towards the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.

Once at the South Shetland Islands, you will make Zodiac landings at penguin rookeries, research stations and fascinating viewpoints. The Subantarctic islands and Antarctic Peninsula are a nature photographer’s paradise, and your guides will attempt as many shore landings as possible per day, weather conditions permitting, to bring you as close to Antarctica’s beauty as possible.

After leaving the Antarctic behind us, we spend the last seadays bird watching from the top deck and attending lectures, workshops and photo re-caps in one of the ship's lounges as we cross the mighty Drake Passage.
