South Georgia & Antarctica Peninsula Odyssey

The sub-Antarctic island of South Georgia is a rare jewel, blessed with huge glaciers, a profusion of wildlife and rich in Antarctic history. From the old whaling station at Grytviken, the burial place of Ernest Shackleton, to the enormous King Penguin rookery at Salisbury Plain, the island provides visitors with an unforgettable Antarctic experience. Combine this with time to explore the natural wonders of the Falklands, the Orkneys, the Shetlands and the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula, and you have the essence of this remarkable voyage. Our time in South Georgia will be spent visiting rookeries with literally thousands of King, Macaroni and Rockhopper Penguins. We will continue the voyage to the Antarctic, visiting the South Orkney Islands enroute, and attempting to land on the wild and spectacular Elephant Island. Exploring the western flanks of the Antarctic Peninsula provides a further highlight and, as with our other voyages to Antarctica, we have time for regular shore excursions to walk among the many penguins and seals, and visit the scientific stations.
