This is one of those trips of a lifetime, one that requires you to experience it in the first person. No amount of words can adequately describe the variety, majesty, tension, and unparallelled beauty of land, sea, ice, mammals, and birds all converging on the world’s most remote continent. Zegrahm staff, naturalists, directors, and ship personnel combined to provide a lifetime of memories forever imprinted on the brain through a combination of passion, caring, and hard work. Best trip ever!
Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falkland Islands
- Antarctica tour experts, personalizing your experience through daily recaps, lectures, and guided excursions—a hallmark of Zegrahm’s Antarctica expeditions.
- Witness the vast penguin colonies of South Georgia—king, macaroni, gentoo, and chinstrap—as well as large numbers of elephant and fur seals crowding the beaches.
- Plus, Adelie penguins in the South Orkney Islands; Shackleton’s legacy in South Georgia; and the opportunity to set foot on the Antarctic continent.
- Falkland Islands tour by Zodiac—gentoo penguins, and albatross are often encountered on this Falkland Islands expedition.
The 110-guest Sea Adventurer will be refurbished in 2014 and is a superb oceangoing vessel equipped with stabilizers and an ice-strengthened hull that allow her to navigate easily in the most rugged natural environments. A fleet of Zodiac landing craft allows us to explore at a moment’s notice. Each stateroom has an ocean view, an in-room music system, and en suite bathroom.
Encompassing 615,000 acres of expansive grasslands and the fantastic pinnacles of the Andean mountains, Torres del Paine National Park is a stunning UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and Chile’s premier Patagonian destination. Here, peaks of twisted, snow-dusted granite—endowed with waterfalls, emerald lakes, and verdant valleys—tower above the plains of Patagonia.
It’s not every day you find yourself in need of Arctic sport boots—but when you are fortunate enough to be exploring Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands with us, consider renting these incredibly hard-working boots. They’re breathable and warm, waterproof to the knee, and boast a great tread, helping you keep your footing as you’re getting to know the local Adelie penguins or albatross.
