Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctic Peninsula - M/V Ushuaia

Falkland Islands, the magnificent South Georgia and into Antarctica... Experience the outstanding birdlife of the Falkland Islands. Marvel at the vast King penguin rookeries of South Georgia, before experiencing one of the most spectacular wilderness areas on earth. Antarctica has a remarkable collection of wildlife; snow-capped mountains and blue icebergs; penguins, whales and a rich diversity of birdlife - all of which await you on an exploratory journey of the Great White Continent. September and October are the months when the elephant seals give birth on the beaches in South Georgia. You will not only have the chance to witness such incredible moments, but will also have the opportunity to observe their nurturing habits, vocalizing with, and caressing their new pups for the first time. Big elephant seal bulls will be most active at this time of year as they defend their harems with their bull-fighting antics. Breath-taking moments are almost certainly guaranteed on this early season voyage to South Georgia and Antarctica.

Day 3 - Western Falkland Islands (Malvinas)

We will have time to explore the western coast and hope to visit West Point and Carcass Islands. The attractive settlement of West Point Island sits on the edge of a small harbour on the eastern side, in the lee of Black Bog Hill and Michael's Mount. The valley between these two peaks rolls over the center of the island to the dramatic Devil's Nose, one of the Island's main attractions. This is where we will encounter a vast colony of Rockhopper Penguins and Black-browed Albatrosses, nesting together in close vicinity. Carcass Island which lies to the north-west of the Falkland archipelago has a spectacularly large population of small birds. Gentoo and Magellanic Penguins also nest here and you may spot Peale's and Commerson's dolphins, who frequently come close to the shoreline to catch a glimpse of the visitors.Overnight, we will sail around the northern islands of the archipelago to reach the capital Stanley by morning.

The endemic Falkland Steamer Ducks abound on the shorelines while Kelp Gulls can often be seen flying together with Dolphin Gulls. The less obvious but frequent visitors to Stanley area are Black-crowned Night Herons, Red-backed Hawks and Peregrine Falcons. In the early afternoon, we set sail for South Georgia.

Day 9 - South Georgia

Salisbury Plain is a wildlife site without parallel. Several large glaciers provide a dramatic backdrop for the tens of thousands of King Penguins that nest in the tussac grass of this remarkable ecosystem. The wide beach makes for excellent walking as we visit the colony, where we are literally surrounded and delightfully outnumbered by throngs of curious, gentle penguins. Elephant and fur seals also abound, as well as Southern Giant Petrels and the occasional wandering Gentoo Penguin.

Day 11 - South Georgia

Grytviken lies within King Edward Cove, a sheltered harbour tucked between Hope Point and Hobart Rock on the western shore of Cumberland East Bay. The rusting ruins of the Grytviken whaling station are situated on a level plain at the head of the cove, backed by steep hills and mountains. Now the site of the South Georgia Museum, the station remains a focal point of interest for many visitors, as does the nearby grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton on Hope Point. We hope to enjoy a landing at St. Andrews Bay, covered in penguins and seals and bounded in the interior by the Cook, Buxton and Heaney Glaciers. The Bay hosts the biggest colony of King Penguins on South Georgia. Early season, the beach is carpeted with fur and elephant seals. Leopard seals also patrol the rocks at the end of the beach, hunting for penguins along the edge of kelp beds. Brown Skuas and Antarctic Terns breed on the outwash plain, defending their nest sites with their characteristic noise and vigour.

Day 14 - Elephant Island, South Shetland Islands

We hope to have a chance to visit the enigmatic Elephant Island. Those who are aware of Sir Ernest Shackleton's story, will need no introduction to this historic windswept island. In 1916 Shackleton was forced to leave 22 of his men stranded on these shores, while he and five others embarked on an unbelievable last-ditch rescue attempt. What followed, is one of the greatest rescue stories of all time. Every passenger will return with a greater knowledge of this gripping tale of adventure, in a truly remarkable part of the world.

We will attempt to land at as many sites as possible. We might visit Hydrurga Rocks, a small group of islets, which lie east of Two Hummock Island in the Palmer Archipelago, at the northern entrance of the Gerlache Strait. Chinstrap Penguins, Blue-eyed Shags and Kelp Gulls are confirmed breeders here. The Gerlache Straight is a region of broad straits, mountainous islands, protected bays, and narrow channels. Here you will find an abundance of tall peaks, un-climbed by humans, with vast glaciers flowing towards the sea. Weather and ice conditions will determine our final itinerary and all trips vary depending on the ice, which means that all voyages are unique and no two are the same.

If conditions permit, we hope to land on Deception Island - the largest of three recent volcanic centers in the South Shetlands. Sailing through the narrow passage into the flooded caldera of Deception Island is truly amazing. Once inside, the rising slope of the black, cinder-covered, volcanic rim can be walked uphill to a rather spectacular vantage point. We also hope to include a stop at the crescent-shaped Half Moon Island, in the entrance of Moon Bay (between Greenwich and Livingston Islands) - home to Chinstrap Penguins in breathtaking surroundings.

Budgeting and packing

Clothing

Dress on board is informal. Pack comfortable, casual clothing for all activities. Wind and waterproof outer layers are essential, and the most important piece of clothing you will bring is a parka. Beware of tight clothing that leaves no room for trapped air, which is an excellent insulator. Wool, silk and some of the new synthetic fibres, like polar fleece, retain heat better than cotton. Parkas You should look for a lightweight, roomy, wind and water-resistant parka with some insulation. Bright colours are more visible - and thus safer - in polar environments. Gloves Keeping your hands warm and dry can be a challenge. Thin polypropylene gloves can be worn underneath warm outer gloves. This allows you some protection from the cold when removing your gloves to operate your camera etc. We strongly recommend that you bring more than one pair of gloves, in case one gets wet (or lost). Hat/Cap Warm, woollen hat/cap to protect your ears, as well as a scarf, neck gaiter or other face protection, such as a balaclava. Trousers Water-resistant trousers of coated nylon or, even better, Gore-Tex® are essential for your comfort. They can be worn over your regular clothes to keep you warm and dry. We suggest that you purchase trousers a few sizes larger than you normally wear as you will be wearing them over other clothing. Gore-Tex® or similar fabrics are excellent for keeping out wind and water without trapping excess heat. Rain gear and Gore-Tex® products can be found in any outdoor sport clothing store. In addition to your waterproof trousers, warm ski pants are suggested if you have them. Warm trousers such as jeans, corduroys etc. are also good. Socks Warm wool socks worn over a thin pair of silk, polypropylene socks should provide enough warmth and insulation for your feet. Bring several pairs of socks, since you will inevitably get your feet wet. Outer Clothing Woollen, knit or cotton sweaters/tops, polar fleece tops (medium weight), several cotton turtlenecks and T-shirts for layering on and off the ship. Underclothing Thermal underwear is highly recommended as it will keep you warm without adding bulk.

Footwear

Complimentary waterproof boots will be supplied on-board. However, if you have extra small or large feet, you are advised to bring your own. Also ensure you take good walking boots and trainers for relaxing.
