South Georgia with Argentina and Brazil Special Offer

Cruise the Antarctic Peninsula with daily Scenic Discovery excursions, Zodiac cruises, kayaking trips and visits ashore to view penguin colonies. The itinerary and excursions in the Antarctic depend on the ice and weather conditions, and will be carefully planned by the experienced Captain and Discovery Leader.

Elephant Island is where Sir Ernest Shackleton set out for South Georgia in a small boat in 1916 on a remarkable sailing journey, returning 132 days later to rescue his men. In South Georgia the schedule is flexible based on the conditions; step ashore on beaches for the chance to see thousands of king penguins, enormous southern elephant seals and countless fur seals. Grytviken, a former whaling station, is the final resting place of Ernest Shackleton. The unique Falkland Islands teem with wildlife; Saunders Island is home to gentoo, Magellanic and rockhopper penguins on white sandy beaches. Discover the picturesque capital of the Falklands, Stanley, and get to know the locals who are proud of their history and heritage.

After an overnight hotel stay in Buenos Aires explore Iguazú Falls where the sheer volume of water cascading over the falls is breathtaking then enjoy a 3-night Special Stay in the Brazilian National Park. Excursions include an exciting jet boat adventure at the base of the falls, a trip to Parque das Aves to see the colourful array of rare birds and an optional helicopter flight over the falls. In Rio de Janeiro there is a 3-night Special Stay in the heart of the beach strip, as well as a cable car ride to the top of Sugar Loaf Mountain to watch the sunrise from the base of the Christ the Redeemer Statue.
