    Falkland Islands

    Dream destination for birdwatchers: the Falkland Islands
    Board the BREMEN’s Zodiacs for the first time and discover a fascinating, abundant world of birds at close range. On several flexible landings, you will experience this unique ecosystem at first hand, joining experts to observe rockhopper and Magellanic Penguins, which share their habitat with kelp geese, black-browed albatrosses and steamer ducks. By contrast, the small capital of Stanley appears to be “very British”. Discover Victorian houses and the world’s southernmost Anglican church.

    South Georgia

    Unforgettable encounters in South Georgia
    Three expedition days packed with great experiences lie ahead, when glaciated mountain summits on the horizon announce your approach to this unique animal paradise. Hundreds of thousands of king penguins live on the coasts and hillsides of the island and bring the stunning landscape to life. On up to three trips and landings each day with the Zodiacs, you can experience this rich animal kingdom up close, and see elephant seals fighting over a harem or observe gentoo penguins and thousands of king penguins breeding and raising their young. Prominent experts with extensive experience in the Antarctic will be able to tell you all about the fauna and flora. In Grytviken, for example, you will be able to immerse yourself in the exciting history of polar exploration. Visit the tiny whalers’ church built in 1913, and the grave of polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, whose legendary Endurance expedition came to a fortunate end on South Georgia.

    South Orkney Islands , South Shetland Islands , Antarctic Peninsula , Antarctic Circle

    You will also gain an insight into the everyday lives of modern polar researchers on the South Orkney Islands, where, weather permitting, you will be taken ashore in the Zodiacs to visit the Argentinian Orcadas research station (subject to authorisation). And with a little luck, you will have your first sighting of majestic icebergs off Signy Island.

    Thrilling moments in the ice: the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula Brown Bluff will take your breath away as it rises up before you, with its more than 700 m high brown tuff cliffs standing proud between two mighty glaciers. This panorama is accompanied by the cries of countless kelp gulls as well as cape and snow petrels. The Zodiacs will bring you ashore so that you can get acquainted with the Adelie penguins that live here in a large colony of several thousand animals. A hike along the coast with explanations from the experts on the biology of the colony and the geology of the island promises to provide fascinating insights. Deception Island is an unforgettable highlight of your cruise. The entrance into the caldera of this volcanic island is an experience in itself – as is the cruise through Paradise Bay: glaciers tower hundreds of metres above and snow-covered mountains line the bay in which icebergs as high as houses float. The team of experts accompanying you will open up new fields of knowledge and will visit the Antarctic continent with you if the weather and ice conditions permit landing. One of the most impressive shipping passages in the world is the Lemaire Channel: mountains up to 1,000 m high line the strait of water and seem to be almost within reach as a mystical tranquillity prevails.
