    Falkland Islands

    A fascinating bird paradise – the Falkland Islands
    The Zodiac fleet will be lowered to the water for the first time to head for the Falkland Islands. During several landings, our experts will accompany you on hikes through the dwarf shrubs and grasses that are typical of the islands. Marvel at the head-high tussock grass and the diversity of the bird world, where rockhopper and Magellanic penguins bid you welcome; there is also a chance that black-bellied storm petrels, silver teal, albatrosses or peregrine falcons will suddenly appear before your very eyes. In Stanley, you will be welcomed to the small island capital with its very British charm.

    South Georgia

    South Georgia – realm of the king penguins
    Set a course for the wildlife of South Georgia. Flexible, spontaneous and impressive: the Zodiacs are used 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 over three intensive days, including in Salisbury Plain and Gold Harbour, you will encounter fur seals and sedate elephant seals on the beaches along the craggy coastline, while black-browed albatrosses and giant petrels make their nests in among 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 they will bring to life the pioneering days of Antarctic research: in the former Grytviken whaling station, you will visit the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton and remember the heroic efforts with which this man once rescued his team.

    South Shetland Islands , Antarctic Peninsula

    Wonderland of the Antarctic Peninsula
    The experienced crew will react flexibly and spontaneously to guarantee you unforgettable moments in the icy paradise of the Antarctic. However, nature will define exactly which fascinating discoveries await you – such as on an exciting Zodiac trip through the ice-covered Cierva Cove bay. With a little luck, you will be able to observe leopard seals and minke whales. The wonders of Paradise Bay are just as impressive. 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. Further south, your journey takes you through the narrow Lemaire Channel (depending on ice): spectacular peaks on both sides make this waterway one of the world’s most beautiful shipping passages. Now the excitement on board rises yet again. How far to the south can the BREMEN actually sail? This is a question that can only be answered on board when you get there. Yet one thing is certain: the landings with the Zodiacs will enable you to enjoy the full beauty of this Antarctic wonderland. In the clear air on deck, a genuine pioneering spirit prevails, which will also accompany you on the route back north when you cruise through the Neumayer-Kanal with its amazing glaciers. The volcanic Deception Island is an unforgettable sight to bring your cruise to a close. The entrance into the caldera is an experience in itself. On the black volcanic beaches, you can relax and look back over the many experiences you have had on this varied expedition.
