Antarctica South Georgia Falklands 16 nights | One Ocean Expeditions

Antarctica Antarctica, South Georgia, Falkland Islands 16 nights

In Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands we enjoy extended daylight hours, wildlife colonies and exciting landing sites.

We follow the footsteps of Sir Ernest Shackleton whose epic small boat journey a century ago remains one of the greatest feats of navigation in history. In South Georgia we spend the following days exploring the northern coastline. Here we encounter some of the largest king penguin colonies on earth. The shores are covered in wildlife – including nesting albatross, fur seals and elephant seals. In Antarctica, the wildlife colonies are busy and as the sea ice continues to break up, our range of landing sites expands even further.
