Falklands, South Georgia & South Shetland Islands

Half of your Antarctic adventure is about what you see on the way

The Falklands offer intrepid adventurers a wealth of wildlife watching opportunities and astonishingly rugged scenery. The islands are home to five species of penguin and large numbers of seal, albatross, and whale. Carcass Island is a pristine wilderness where you will see majestic caracara soaring in search of prey, elephant seal lounging on the beach, and dolphins leaping along the bow of your ship.

The coastline of South Georgia is magnificent and offers opportunities for walking, hiking, kayaking, and taking Zodiac excursions. There are untouched beaches, mountains and glaciers, and colonies of albatross – their size will stun you into silence as you see them dive into the waves for fish.
 
Seabirds, penguin, and marine mammals can be seen as you wind along the coast to the cemetery where Ernest Shackleton is buried.

King George Island, Elephant Island, and Deception Island are South Shetland’s three main islands. Between them, they offer extensive wildlife viewing, mysterious shipwrecks, and volcanically heated waters where you can swim in a collapsed, but still active volcano.
