    Falkland Islands

    Fascinating Bird Paradise Falkland Islands
    The Zodiac fleet will take to the water as soon as you reach your first destination to head for the Falkland Islands. On the occasion of several flexible landings, experts will accompany you on hikes through the dwarf shrubs and species of grasses that are typical of the islands. Marvel at the head-high tussock grass and the diversity of the bird world - perhaps black-bellied storm petrels, silver teals, albatrosses or peregrine falcons will suddenly take off from the ground just in front of you and you will also be welcomed by rockhopper and Magellan penguins. In Stanley, the small capital of the island, you will be welcomed with a British atmosphere.

    South Georgia

    Unforgettable Encounters in South Georgia
    Three expedition days full of magnificent experiences lie ahead of you when glaciated peaks on the horizon announce this unique animal paradise. Hundreds of thousands of king penguins inhabit and animate the coastlines and cliffs of the island and the overwhelming landscape. On up to three daily rides and landings with the Zodiacs, you will get really close to the abundant animal world and be able to discover elephant seals fighting about their harem or gentoo penguins and thousands of king penguins incubating their eggs or rearing their chicks. Outstanding experts who can look back on comprehensive experience in Antarctica make you familiar with the indigenous fauna and flora. In Grytviken, you can immerse yourself in the exiting history of polar expeditions and research - visit the small whalers’ church dating from 1913 and the grave of the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton whose legendary ”Endurance“ expedition came to a happy end on South Georgia.

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

    You will get an impression of the everyday routine of modern polar researchers when you visit the Argentinean research station Orcadas on the South Orkney Islands with the Zodiacs provided the weather is favourable (subject to official approval). And with a bit of luck, you will see the first majestic icebergs in front of Signy Island.

    Enthralling Moments in the Ice: South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula
    In regions where the weather and ice define the route, only a genuine expedition ship like the BREMEN can guarantee the complete Antarctic experience - small, manoeuvrable and, thanks to the highest ice class for passenger ships, capable of sailing through even drift and pack ice. Unstoppably, the ship advances in the direction of the Antarctic Peninsula. You will experience magical moments, for example when the Zodiacs take you to Paulet Island in the Weddell Sea in the vicinity of thousands of Adelie penguins. Or while cruising in the Antarctic Sound, when the enormous table icebergs drift silently through the waters. Every day on board is experienced in the spirit of courageous pioneers such as Otto Nordenskjöld, who once explored this remote region under great hardship. With their years of experience in the polar regions of this world, your captain, crew and the team of well-versed experts in different fields will enable you to obtain impressions that you will never forget.
    You can, for example, take a bath in hot springs on the black lava beaches of Deception Island. Or marvel at the miracles of Paradise Bay - with the Zodiacs, you will pass the glistening icebergs towards majestic glacial towers with shining blue crevasses.
    If the ice and weather conditions allow for a landing, you will be able to set foot on the Antarctic mainland – an especially elevating moment of your expedition. Further south the voyage through the Neumayer Channel offers you fantastic panoramic views of glaciers which continue in the narrow Lemaire Channel - spectacular peaks on both sides make this waterway one of the most beautiful ship passages in the world. In the Penola Strait, the tension on board rises once again: How far south will the BREMEN be able to advance? A question that can only be clarified on board. However, it is certain that you will enjoy the entire beauty of this Antarctic wonder world during your final landings with the Zodiacs. Between icebergs and large colonies of Adelie and chinstrap penguins, it is easy to be amazed – and all the more difficult to say goodbye.
