Adventure Options

Combine the best of the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia on one incredible voyage. Whether it’s peak season or summer’s close, Antarctica
offers lively penguin colonies, feeding whales, and unsurpassed adventure activities. Cross the majestic Scotia Sea to visit the world's largest king penguin colonies and for some, follow (on foot or ski) Shackleton’s epic walk across South Georgia.

Highlights
• Zodiac cruise past iridescent blue icebergs
• Tick-off the best-ever continental landing – Antarctica!
• Marvel at intense, peak season wildlife activity
• Wonder at world’s largest king penguin rookeries
• Follow in Shackleton’s footsteps across South Georgia

Days 1 & 2 — Ushuaia, Argentina

Enjoy a night in Ushuaia, before a late-afternoon boarding of the Greg Mortimer on Day 2, setting sail on the Beagle Channel and Drake Passage.

Days 3 & 4 — Drake Passage

Drake Passage offers excellent bird watching from the outer decks or the warm bridge. Keen eyes watch for icebergs, penguins, seals and cormorants as we approach our first landing in the South Shetland Islands late in the afternoon of Day 4.

Days 5 to 7 — Antarctica

Awaken to the thrill of Antarctica, where we plan to visit busy penguin rookeries, historic sites and make a continental landing. The Antarctic Peninsula’s west coast is ours to explore. We rely on our experienced expedition team, many who’ve been here over dozens of summers, to create the best daily itinerary that prevailing weather and ice conditions allow. A sense of excitement abounds as we use every moment of daylight to enjoy the best that Antarctica has to offer. This could mean two to three excursions in a day, whether it be to penguin colonies, historic huts, a working scientific station or a Zodiac cruise through a sculpture garden of grounded icebergs. Weather and ice conditions permitting, we will attempt to explore the ice-chocked Weddell Sea region before moving onto the western side of the Peninsula.

Day 8 — Elephant Island

Elephant Island, where Shackleton’s 22 men wintered over beneath their upturned boats. If weather and seas permit, Zodiacs will carry us close to Point Wild to pay tribute to these hardy souls.

Days 9 & 10 — Scotia Sea

We follow in Shackleton’s wake across the Scotia Sea, watching for great whales and big icebergs riding up from the Weddell Sea. It’s a great time to relax and reflect on what we’ve accomplished so far, and our naturalist and historian start their talks on South Georgia’s wildlife and history.

Days 11 to 14 — South Georgia

With ample time to explore South Georgia’s spectacular north coast, we visit the world’s largest king penguin rookeries, the nesting grounds of majestic wandering albatross and if weather allows, follow Shackleton’s route from Fortuna Bay to Stromness. Kayakers revel in paddling waters alive with king penguins and playful seals. Against a backdrop of 10,000 ft (3000 m) peaks, photograph basking elephant seals, feisty fur seals and penguins cluttering kelp-strewn beaches.

Days 15 to 17 — At Sea

Keeping watch for the kelp-skirted Shag Rocks, we cross the Scotia Sea to the Falklands, entertained by our expert naturalist and historian.

Day 18 — Falkland Islands

Dawn greets us in the Falkland Islands capital, Stanley.

Day 19 — At Sea

Guided by black-browed albatross and dolphins, we sail to the Beagle Channel, sharing photos and a final dinner with friends.

Day 20 — Ushuaia, Argentina

Enjoy breakfast, bid farewell to new friends before disembarking in Ushuaia where your voyage ends.
