Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctic Odyssey aboard the Greg Mortimer

Starting with a night in the world's southernmost city, Ushuaia, we set sail down the Beagle Channel and across the South Atlantic Ocean, headed for the Falkland Islands before continuing to South Georgia - an island of incomparable beauty. The northern flanks of the island comprise of a series of harbours that once sheltered large fleets of whaling ships, now a safe haven for a staggering variety and profusion of wildlife. Our time here will be spent visiting rookeries home to thousands of King, Macaroni and Rockhopper penguins. From here we continue our voyage to explore the western flanks of the Antarctic Peninsula. With ample time for shore excursions to visit scientific stations and historic sites, walk among wildlife and savour the surreal landscapes of the world's most pristine wilderness, this voyage aboard the state-of-the-art new vessel Greg Mortimer will be one to remember.
