Run by: Exodus

Reference number: PRR

From: £19080.00

The towering peaks and immense glacial systems of the Antarctic Peninsula are home to a great abundance of wildlife which we observe on shore, from the Zodiacs and the ship. Large penguin rookeries are found at several locations and we encounter seals and whales in the iceberg filled waterways. Opportunities to visit historic huts and€tive science stations add further interest. We explore on shore through guided walks which may last up to several hours. Or if you prefer to sit and observe the penguins as they come and go from the water - why not? Our journey continues as we follow the course taken by Sir Ernest Shackleton whose epic small boat journey, from Elephant Island€ross the Scotia Sea to South Georgia remains one of the greatest feats of navigation in history. We explore the northern coastline of South Georgia, home to some of the largest King penguin colonies on Earth. The shores are covered in wildlife – including nesting albatross, Fur seals and Elephant seals. Rusting relics from the old whaling era sit silent and provide a dramatic contrast to the green tussock grass, and snowy peaks that surround us. We then head for the Falkland Islands and aim to spend one final day exploring the wildlife-rich Falkland Islands. Our voyage comes to an end in Stanley – the small capital of the Falkland Islands.
