This voyage cruises to the Falkland Islands, where on the western side of the archipelago, we will discover Black-Browed Albatross sharing their colony with sturdy Rockhopper Penguins and Port Stanley, the capital of the Falklands. We then cruise to South Georgia, a region boasting a huge diversity of mammals, whales and birds. The island comprises of a series of harbours that once sheltered large fleets of whaling ships. In South Georgia we plan to visit Stromness Bay, the King Penguin colonies on Salisbury Plain, Grytviken (Whaling History Museum) as well as Shackleton's grave. Combine this with the natural wonders of the South Orkney Islands and the spectacular Antarctic Peninsula and you have the makings of a truly memorable voyage. Exploring the western flanks of the Antarctic Peninsula provides a further highlight to our trip with regular shore excursions to stretch your legs while enjoying the wildlife and visiting the scientific stations.
