Falklands, South Georgia And Antarctica - M/v Polar Pioneer

The Falkland Islands to South Georgia...
The Falkland Islands are an archipelago of over 400 islands; an important breeding ground for penguins, elephant seals and sea lions. Often described as the gem of the Southern Ocean, the splendour of South Georgia is hard to describe - stunning snow-capped mountain landscapes, deep fjords, tousled tussock grasses and wild beaches all combine to provide superb stunning photo opportunities. Here is the
most important colony of king penguins, fur seals and elephant seals and it is estimated that over 10 million sea birds visit South Georgia each year.

Tour Highlights

  • Sail to the Falkland Islands to explore the archipelago
  • Follow in the footsteps of Shackleton to South Georgia
  • View colonies of king penguins, fur & elephant seals
  • Travel on a small, friendly expedition ship

Ship Description
Polar Pioneer is a Finnish ex-research vessel, refurbished to provide an adventurous journey in the polar regions; its ice class means it has excellent manoeuvrability. The vessel accommodates only 54 passengers, meaning more time with the experts and a friendly on-board experience. Informed crew and experts will ensure you learn about how a polar expedition runs, your unique surroundings and the wildlife; Zodiacs will take you to shore for close encounters.
