Great white wonder
Quite simply, Antarctica defies the imagination. Pristine and strikingly beautiful, this awe-inspiring region of untouched icescapes, mountains rising from the sea, and incredible, diverse wildlife will literally take your breath away.
Wake up to spectacular scenery and ice-filled channels, and spend your days marvelling at the many wonders along the Antarctic Peninsula. Set out exploring and immerse yourself in the grand spectacle. The constantly changing weather, scenery and colours provide opportunities for professional and amateur photographers alike.
For most a trip to Antarctica will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and for those with the time there is no voyage more extraordinary than Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands.
Arrive in November and December and the breeding cycle is reaching its peak. In March, there is a staggering number of whales, seals, birds and penguins on display as they prepare for the annual migration north. Regardless of the month, you’ll visit king penguin colonies on South Georgia, walk in the footsteps of Shackelton and visit his resting place, wander the quaint streets of the Falkland Islands and discover hidden coves around the Antarctic Peninsula. Wildlife will surround you -whales, seals, penguins, marine birds and more. Magnificent icescapes will be ever present.
