    Falkland Islands, South Georgia, Antarctica

    Most comprehensive expedition with greatest wildlife viewing opportunities

    This is a far-reaching expedition to the islands of the South Atlantic Ocean and the Antarctic mainland, offered with our partner, One Ocean Expeditions.  View thousands of penguins, enormous turquoise icebergs, humpback whales feeding on krill, and the endless sweeping ice sheet of Antarctica.

    Depart from Ushuaia and make your first stop in the Falkland Islands. Here, you will find a relatively warm climate where an abundance of unusual wildlife thrives. Sixty species of migratory birds and the rare rockhopper penguin inhabit these islands.

    Your voyage on the well-appointed Akademik Ioffe or Akademik Sergey Vavilov, continues through the Antarctic convergence to the pristine island of South Georgia. Towering glacier-covered mountains are merely the backdrop to spectacular wildlife sightings including rookeries of the pompous king penguin, several seal species and the laughable macaroni penguin. You may see the South Orkney Islands, often cloaked in mist, as we make our way to the South Shetland Archipelago and Antarctica.

    Experience a deep sense of awe when you first glimpse the much-anticipated continent. Even our One Ocean Expeditions' leaders, who have led more than a hundred expeditions, are still overcome by its formidable beauty. You are greeted by thousands of icebergs that look like modern art sculptures lining the bays of Paradise Harbour or Hope Bay. Meanwhile an overwhelming profusion of wildlife is on display from penguins torpedoing through the water to predatory leopard seals staking their claim on ice floes. We hope to stand on the mainland of the White Continent itself. From this vantage point, it is easy to understand why legendary explorers such as Roald Amundsen and Sir Ernest Shackleton were so captivated by this haunting region. As with all our voyages, safety is our top priority. For that reason weather, ice or other conditions may require us to change our itinerary and shore excursions as we go but that is half the fun of Polar exploring. Predictability is a word that has no relevance in this environment.
