South Georgia and the Antarctic Special Offer

Explore breathtaking natural landscapes, from snow-covered coastlines to magical islands home to penguins, fur seals and sea birds on brand new luxurious expedition ship HANSEATIC inspiration, equipped to venture to the remote and icy regions of Antarctica.

Get up close to large colonies of king penguins and fur seals during Zodiac landings on the picturesque island of South Georgia. Weather permitting you can cruise directly into the flooded caldera of the extinct volcano on Deception Island in the South Shetland archipelago, before heading to the Antarctic Peninsula.

Here there may be the opportunity to set foot on the mainland near the beautiful Paradise Bay, where icebergs the size of houses drift by. Observe colonies of Gentoo penguins and majestic glaciers, before cruising the famous Drake Passage.
