THE CLASSIC VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY VISITING THESE ICONIC LOCATIONS
This is our most far-reaching polar expedition and includes visits to three different locations. The sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia is home to a proliferation of unique wildlife and birdlife. There are penguin rookeries with more than 100,000 nesting birds and the beaches are covered in fur seals and elephant seals. Seabirds, including many of the albatross species call these islands home, nesting and raising their young in this wild and remote environment. South Georgia features a fascinating history and truly stunning scenery.
To the south lies Antarctica – the frozen continent and the second of our iconic destinations on this outstanding voyage. Icebergs in all shapes and sizes fill the waters, and yet more unique wildlife can be found living in sizable colonies. The waters are full of life and we frequently encounter whales including humpback, minke and orca.
On this voyage, our days are spent exploring on shore in the company of expert guides – including naturalists, marine biologists, ornithologists and adventurers as well as our resident photography professional. Cruising in our inflatable Zodiac boats is another memorable activity. For the adventurers, we provide plenty of opportunities to explore on long hikes ashore, or by sea kayak. The clever use of a timesaving flight at the start of this voyage means you maximise your time in all the key locations.
