Antarctica and Sub-Antarctic Islands
This comprehensive trip combines the standard exploration of the Antarctic Peninsula with a voyage to the South Atlantic islands of South Georgia, the Falklands and the South Orkneys. The Falklands are home to Rockhopper and Magellanic Penguins and the Black-Bowed Albatross as well as having a fascinating history. Retracing the legendary expeditions of Ernest Shackleton, you'll visit his grave on South Georgia as well as the former whaling stations at Grytviken and see the astonishing 100,000 King Penguins that inhabit this spectacular island. The South Orkneys are the final stop before reaching the incomparable Antarctica, where the adventure is only beginning.
