Luxury Antarctica and South Georgia Special Offer

This luxury all-inclusive expedition cruise begins with a hotel stay in Buenos Aires before heading to the dramatic landscapes of South Georgia, the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands.

See the amazing scenery and remarkable wildlife of the remote Falkland Islands, before spending three unforgettable days in South Georgia, where king penguins stretch out as far as the eye can see. It is then time to set sail for the Great White Continent of Antarctica, which promises adventure, legendary tales and outstanding natural beauty.

Zodiac trips allow exploration of places which would otherwise be inaccessible giving the chance to see seals on moving ice-floes, albatross in flight and the penguins that inhabit the region. Itineraries are intentionally unstructured, as following only a tentative schedule allows for moment-by-moment flexibility. The expedition leader will work closely with the Captain to maximise the opportunities for adventure and exploration.

Luxury Antarctica and South Georgia Itinerary

Day 1 - Ushuaia

Embark your ship in Ushuaia.

Day 2 - At sea

Enjoy the ship's facilities on a relaxing day at sea.

Day 3 - West Point Island (Falkland Islands) - Saunders Island

West Point Island is a north-westerly outpost of the scenic Falkland Islands, and home to a large colony of black-browed albatross. It is also home to rockhopper penguins and imperial cormorants. Continue to Saunders Island, another haven for wildlife, including sheep, elephant seals and Peale's dolphins.

Day 4 - Stanley

Stanley is the capital of the remote Falkland Islands, and has a distinct British ambience. Stroll through the charming streets of this colourful little town, lined with quaint cottages and a variety of traditional pubs. See the 19th-century Anglican cathedral and perhaps visit the small local museum. Some lingering reminders of the 1986 Falklands War between Britain and Argentina may still be seen though the island has settled back to its quiet business of raising sheep.

Days 5-6 - At sea

Enjoy the facilities on board during days at sea.

Days 7-9 - South Georgia

Glaciers and wildlife combine to make South Georgia one of the greatest natural islands in the world. See birds soaring overhead, elephant seals lounging on the beaches and penguins stretching out as far as the eye can see. You can also see remains of former whaling stations. The crew of Sir Ernest Shackleton's ship, Endurance, were saved which he reached the salvation of these shores. A museum commemorates the legendary mission.

Days 10-11 - At sea

Enjoy the ship's facilities during relaxing days at sea.

Day 12 - Elephant Island (Antarctica)

It is from this island that Sir Ernest Shackleton set out for South Georgia in a small boat in 1916, undertaking one of the most remarkable sailing journeys of all time and returning 132 days later to rescue his men.

Days 13-15 - Antarctic Sound - Antarctic Peninsula

Antarctica is one of earth's last great frontiers. Follow in the footsteps of pioneering spirits to a land of pristine and unspoilt landscapes. Our itinerary will be dictated by sea and weather conditions, but weather permitting, exploration of Antarctica's natural diversity continues. Passing thick pack ice which shimmers beneath a southern sky, watch out for icebergs and for whales breaching the surface of the water.

Day 16 - South Shetland Islands

The South Shetland Islands are made up of nine major islands and the region was the first to be used by sealers in the early 19th century. Chinstrap, Adelie, Gentoo and Macaroni Penguins all breed here.

Days 17-18 - Drake Passage

Returning to South America through the Drake Passage, the clarity of the air affords spectacular views of the southern night skies. This is the area known as the Antarctic Convergence where the cold polar water meets warmer equatorial water.

Day 19 - Ushuaia (Argentina)

Disembark ship in Ushuaia.

For navigational reasons the Captain of the ship reserves the right to modify the cruise itinerary.
