    Falkland Islands

    Dream destination for bird-watchers: the Falkland Islands
    Take your first ride on the Zodiacs of the BREMEN and encounter a fascinating bird kingdom rich in species up close. On several flexible landings, you will experience this unique ecosystem most intensely with the experts as you observe rockhopper and Magellanic penguins who share their habitat with kelp geese, black-browed albatrosses and steamer ducks. In contrast, the small capital of Stanley seems “very British”. Discover Victorian houses and the southernmost Anglican church in the world.

    South Georgia

    South Georgia – in the kingdom of the king penguin
    Flexible, spontaneous and impressive: the Zodiacs are in use several times a day to enable expeditionary experiences and wildlife sightings that take your breath away. Take standing in front of a gigantic colony of king penguins, for example. Hundreds of thousands of these animals populate the slopes and coasts of the island. During spectacular landings on three intensive days, including at Salisbury Plain and Gold Harbour, you will encounter fur seals and the portly elephant seals on the beaches along the craggy coastline, while black-browed albatrosses and giant petrels nest in the rocks. Renowned experts including biologists, geologists and glaciologists will accompany you and add new dimensions to your unique natural experiences by revealing surprising details. Or bring the pioneering days of Antarctic research to life: in the former whaling station Grytviken, visit the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton and remember the heroic efforts with which this man once saved his team.

    South Orkney Islands , Weddell Sea , South Shetland Islands , Antarctic Peninsula

    To find out how modern polar researchers work, you will be travelling to the South Orkney Islands where, weather permitting, you will visit the oldest permanently inhabited research station in the Antarctic, the Argentinian station Orcadas (subject to permission). And with a little luck, you will have your first sighting of majestic icebergs off Signy Island.

    Thrilling moments in the ice: South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula       Where weather and ice dictate the route, only a genuine expedition ship such as the BREMEN can guarantee you the full Antarctic experience. It is small, manoeuvrable and, thanks to its highest ice class for passenger ships, even capable of sailing through drift ice and pack ice. The ship clears its inexorable path in the direction of the Antarctic Peninsula. You will experience moments of magic when, for example, the Zodiacs bring you to Paulet Island in the Weddell Sea to view thousands of Adelie penguins up close. Or when cruising in the Antarctic Sound, where huge tabular icebergs drift silently through the water. Every day on board passes in the spirit of daring pioneers, such as Otto Nordenskjöld, who once endured great hardship to explore this remote region. With their many years of background in the polar regions of this world, the captain, crew and the well-versed experts in various specialised topics will provide you with expedition experiences that you will never forget. These include the opportunity to bathe in hot springs along black lava beaches of Deception Island. Or marvel at the wonders of Paradise Bay. With the Zodiacs, you will glide past sparkling icebergs to majestic, lofty glacial towers, the crevices of which glow blue. If the ice and weather conditions permit a landing, you will be able to set foot on the Antarctic mainland – an exceptionally moving moment during your expedition. Next your journey takes you further south and through the narrow Lemaire Channel where spectacular peaks on both sides make this waterway one of the most beautiful shipping passages in the world. In the Penola Strait, the excitement on board rises yet again. How far to the south can the BREMEN advance southwards? A question that can only be answered from on board when you get there. Yet one thing is certain: the landings with the Zodiacs will reveal to you the full beauty of this Antarctic wonderland between huge colonies of Adelie and chinstrap penguins. The passage through the Neumayer Channel then reveals more panoramic views of amazing glaciers. In the midst of icebergs as high as a house, it is easy to be amazed – and even harder to bid farewell.
