Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falkland IslandsJanuary 7, 2016 - January 28, 2016
In the spirit of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Antarctica expedition, our exploration of the White Continent offers in-depth Antarctica, South Georgia, and Falkland Islands adventure travel – all while seamlessly combining rich natural history with some of Mother Nature’s most rugged and dramatic landscapes. Your three-week Antarctica expedition takes place at the height of the austral summer; long daylight hours provide extra time for Zodiac trips to remote shores where you’ll be in the rare company of thousands of penguins; seals and albatross; and the otherworldly, icy architecture of the Antarctic Peninsula.
Antarctica Expedition highlights include:
- 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.
