DESCRIPTION

Learn More @ www.expeditions.com

For most travelers, visiting the "White Continent" is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So, if you have the time, optimize your Antarctica cruise expedition with South Georgia and the Falklands--our travelers never regret it. This voyage has it all: the impossible beauty of Antarctic ice, over 100,000 king penguins in South Georgia and the Falkland's human history and amazing albatross colonies. You'll see three distinct regions, each offering wonderful experiences and sights. And you'll benefit from our 40+ years of exploring here to make the most of every day.

Come with us on our Antarctica cruise: see the huge tabular bergs, explore the wildlife-rich Falklands, hear the stories of Shackleton and early polar exploration and walk wild beaches in South Georgia. Our expeditions with National Geographic allow you to get out daily to take a rugged hike and go by Zodiac and kayak where few have gone before. This Antarctica cruise will affect the way you tell stories about travel and wildlife adventures for years to come.
