Little islands with big tales to tell. The South Georgia Islands are teeming with wildlife and exploration history, while the intriguing Falkland Islands are unique, as is the great white wonder of Antarctica.

In South Georgia, photograph the impressive jagged mountain vistas and walk through some of the world’s largest king penguin colonies. Summer comes to Antarctica and South Georgia like a revelation. Penguins nest, and voraciously hungry chicks grow quickly as their parents work hard feeding them. The waters are teeming with whales feasting on krill, orcas hunt in packs and elephant seal beachmasters are busy guarding their harem. In the Falkland Islands, we explore the historic town of Stanley and the wildlife endemic to the region.
