One of our only expeditions to be offered annually since 1992, this voyage represents expeditionary travel at its finest. Our singular departure combines the very best that the region has to offer and is timed during the height of austral summer—the best time to see penguins tending to their chicks, with long days that are perfect for extended exploration.
