Full itinerary coming soon.


The ultimate Southern Ocean experience, this South Georgia Island cruise expedition takes you into majestically spectacular wildness. Not even the vast migrations of Africa can rival the awesomeness of seeing a king penguin colony of tens of thousands individuals stretching as far as the eye can see. Or albatross colonies that fill the windward edges of the remote islands they call home. You’ll have other rare sightings here too: massive–in both senses of the word–herds of elephant seals, and a wandering albatross stretching its 11-foot wings.  It’s the impossible beauty of an Antarctica trip exponentially increased by unimaginable numbers of animals. A not-be-missed polar experience, for those with the luxury of time.

For most travelers, visiting Antarctica is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So, for those with the luxury of time, including the Falklands and South Georgia Island cruise just makes sense. And makes for a genuine experience-of-a-lifetime. This voyage has it all.
• The impossible beauty of Antarctic ice: tabular bergs, the haunting Lemaire Channel
• Massive wildlife spectacles in South Georgia and the Falklands
• Three distinct regions to experience
• Superlative photos ops and on-board photo assistance

Incomparable wildlife experience
Only the plains of the Serengeti during the migrations can compare to the wildlife spectacles offered by both South Georgia and the Falklands. On your South Georgia Island cruise you’ll see a single rookery with tens of thousands of king penguins—an astonishing sight and an indelible memory. In the Falklands, you’ll see rockhopper penguins in great number in their “hobbit shire” of the tussock grass. And, in both, you’ll have the rare opportunity to see albatross in great numbers—wandering albatross with their impressive 11-foot wing spans; and beautiful black-browed albatross—in colonies that fill the windward ledges of these southernmost islands. These, plus elephant and fur seals, pelagic birds in great numbers, and various species of whales feasting on the Southern Ocean’s seasonal bounty create unprecedented wildlife viewing experiences for you.

Add the human dimension to the ice
From the ghostly remnants of the whaling stations that once peopled South Georgia, to the warmly welcoming ranchers of Port Stanley on the Falklands, and the penguin-adapted researchers of Port Lockroy, a picturesque science station off the otherwise unpeopled Weddell Sea coast, you’ll experience the contrast between the majestic, uninhabited wildness of Antarctica, and the unique human incursions into the land of the ice.
