Comprehensive Polar Cruise To The Falklands, South Georgia And Antarctica

The Falkland Islands
From Ushuaia we head northeast to the Falkland Islands. This archipelago of over
400 islands is an important breeding ground for penguins, elephant seals and sea
lions and an abundance of seabirds along the endless beaches, including the blackbrowed
albatross. We spend time in Stanley, the most isolated capital in the world,
and learn about the island's heritage.
South Georgia 'The Alps in mid-ocean'
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. During the spring months the hillsides are carpeted with wild
flowers. The islands are steeped in the history of Antarctic exploration and here we
find the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton, possibly the most accomplished and
courageous of all polar explorers.
To the ends of the earth
We push further south and on to Antarctica. En route we hope to visit a wealth of
evocative locations, such as the British research station of Port Lockroy in the silent
Neumayer Channel, the sunken caldera of Deception Island, the rookeries of
Chinstrap, see Adélie, Macaroni and Gentoo penguins on bluffs, points and bays
along the way, and perhaps even swim in the hot springs of Pendulum Cove.

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

Ship Description
At a nimble 105 metres (345 ft) in length, with a capacity to hold 132 guests, M/S Expedition is an ideal vessel to ply polar waters. M/S Expedition is large enough to provide stability, speed, spacious cabins and ample public space, but small enough to manoeuvre in remote areas and get you close to the action. Ship stabilisers ensure a smooth ride in rough waters, such as the infamous Drake Passage, allowing you to enjoy more of your time at sea. A fleet of ten zodiacs allows passengers to get out and actively explore the remote shores of our destinations. M/S Expedition is a speedy vessel. A top speed of 16 knots means you'll spend less time getting from A to B, and more time to explore your surroundings.
