Antarctica

Cruise Antarctica

The last continent discovered remains the least explored destination on earth. Mere words cannot describe its majesty, and even the most striking photos fall short of conveying the immense scale and otherworldly beauty of this remote destination. Combine Antarctica with magnificent Chilean Fjords and picturesque Patagonia or add the wildlife Eden of South Georgia and the far-flung Falkland Islands.

What awaits you there – the snowy, sentinel mountain ranges, teeming penguin colonies and stately parades of monumental icebergs; the sight of an albatross effortlessly gliding across an ink-blue sea and the unexpected rainbow of mist arising from a breaching whale – all of that is virtually unchanged from the time before Antarctica’s discovery.

90% of the world’s ice is here in the form of massive glaciers and impressive icebergs. Despite sub-zero temperatures, few places teem with so much life. Antarctica is home to huge populations of wildlife, including whales, seals, and more penguin species than anywhere else in the world.

Port Stanley, Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas

The remote and sparsely-populated Falkland Islands are a birders' paradise and a great place to observe marine animals. The Falkland Islands are usually included as part of an Antarctic route incorporating South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsular. Stretched along the sheltered harbour, the colourful buildings of Stanley bid a friendly welcome to all visitors. The tiny capital city is village-sized but has the amenities you would expect of a large town and lots to discover. Shore excursions can be booked on board ship which is recommended for anyone keen to take a tour. Tours range from various trips to penguin colonies and farms, Stanley’s highlights by bus, battlefield and walking tours. Small buses run regularly to the nearby penguin colony at Gypsy Cove and the city is easy to explore on foot but to get the best from your visit, a tour with a local guide is highly recommended.
