Trip reference number: GMCA
We start our journey from the Southern tip of Argentina in Ushuaia. From here, we set sail on our wildlife -rich journey towards the Falkland Islands. This archipelago of over 400 islands, is an important breeding ground for penguins, elephant seals and sea lions and we will have plenty of time to explore and admire its delightful offerings before sailing on to South Georgia. Often described as the gem of the Southern Ocean, the splendour of South Georgia is hard to describe - stunning snow-capped mountain landscapes, deep fjords, tousled tussock grasses and wild beaches, all combine to provide superb stunning photo opportunities. Here, you will find the most important colony of king penguins, fur seals and elephant seals and it is estimated that over 10 million sea birds visit the area each year. In the mid-summer season this remote wilderness really comes to life. Witness the arrival of whales eager to feast on mountains of krill, fierce battles between elephant seals desperate to find a mate, and the endless cries of penguin chicks waiting for their next meal. We crown our voyage on the beautiful western flanks of the Antarctic Peninsula, discovering incredible chinstrap, Adelie and gentoo penguin rookeries along the way.
