Overview

Deep in the South Atlantic, east of the continent of South America and just north of the convergence zone with the Southern Ocean, lie two of Britain’s most remote and unique territories, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands. With a wealth of history and an even richer abundance of wildlife, the regions combine in this phenomenal itinerary to create a truly special journey which offers a perfect alternative to an Antarctic expedition.

This expedition-style voyage encompassing many of the islands of the Falkland and South Georgia archipelagos offers the chance to immerse yourself in some of the world’s most extraordinary scenery and wildlife.

Daily shore excursions and cruises by Zodiac will offer access to remote coastlines and isolated animal colonies. Sightings of up to 5 different penguin species are possible, along with numerous other birds and marine mammals. This region also has an intriguing history, with British cultural influences in strong evidence.

During your voyage the on-board expedition team will educate and entertain you, sharing their expertise and in-depth knowledge of the local history, wildlife and remote communities, and ensuring you get the most out of your time in these very distinctive regions of the British Empire.
