On this epic 18-day voyage, you'll explore the South Shetlands and the Antarctic continent before heading via the Antarctic Sound and Weddell Sea for an extended South Georgia visit. The adventure ends in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo.

Departing from Ushuaia in Argentina, you'll cross the mighty Drake Passage en route for the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic peninsula. Here you will make Zodiac landings at penguin rookeries, research stations and fascinating lookouts.

Continuing towards the east, you will explore the Antarctic Sound with its mighty tabular icebergs and enter the Weddell Sea in search for wildlife.

Sailing onwards between Elephant Island and South Georgia offers a small glimpse into the passage made famous by Shackleton 100 years ago, when he navigated the 1300 km course through open seas of Drake Passage in an effort to save his stranded crew. South Georgia is one of 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 our agenda. This trip has an extended South Georgia itinerary, allowing us to see more than usual.

On our last leg you'll sail to Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, allowing for easier flights onwards in South America or towards home. The last seadays can be spend bird watching from the top deck and attending lectures, workshops and photo re-caps in one of the ship's lounges.

Zodiac cruising and shore landings are an important and considerable part of the planned itinerary, hopefully enabling all expedition guests to set foot on the Antarctic continent, as well as the many surrounding sub-antarctic and South Georgia islands.

This epic expedition cruise allows you to experience so much pristine nature and varied wildlife!
