Summary : Go beyond the Antarctic Circle on this expedition cruise to the heart of a very special place that is like nowhere you've ever been before. After experienceing the wildlife of the Falkland Islands and its undulating hills and moors, sail to South Georgia for an incredible wildlife experience. This sub-Antarctic region offers a wide variety of landscapes—long mountain chains and black sandy beaches—where huge colonies of king penguins have taken refuge. But the best is yet to come as you sail south to reach the Antarctic Peninsula! Floating ice floes, tabular icebergs, and high snow-capped peaks as you immerse yourself in this enchanting polar desert. To top it all off, you'll cross the Antarctic Circle and enter a region that few have had the opportunity to visit, as you celebrate your arrival in style!
