Antarctica, South Georgia & the Falkland Islands

To the Polar Extremes in 2015

For 25 years, we have taken inquisitive travelers to the ends of the Earth and 2015 is no different. We’re thrilled to be returning to both the Far North and the Far South this year, exploring two true polar extremes.

Departing September 4, our Northwest Passage expedition explores western Greenland and the Canadian Arctic. You’ll be searching for seabirds, waterfowl, whales, seals, and with luck, the mighty polar bear. Walk the legendary ice sheet of Greenland; kayak among fjords, icebergs, and glaciers; and meet some of the region’s hardy (and hearty!) locals.

Our Circumnavigation of South Georgia with the Falkland Islands spends seven full days exploring the historic and wildlife-rich island of South Georgia. You’ll witness huge colonies of king penguins, with over 200,000 at Salisbury Plain alone, as well as four species of albatross, and fur and elephant seals. Visit the burial site of famed explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and spend time on the Falkland Islands, home to black-browed albatross, Magellanic and rockhopper penguins, as well as a host of endemic birds found nowhere else in the world.

Both voyages are aboard the recently-renovated 110-guest Sea Adventurer, perfect for exploring rugged, natural environments. And, each cruise will be joined by an exceptional expedition team of naturalists, geologists, ornithologists, and marine biologists.
