    On the way to South Georgia, you will leave civilisation behind – and simmer with excitement at breathtaking encounters with king penguins, hundreds of thousands of them lining the mountain slopes like a welcoming committee. It is truly wonderful to watch them look for partners and prepare for their offspring. When you pass through the overwhelming Lemaire Channel and the spectacular Neumayer Channel, you will know that here, at the end of the world, you are closer to creation than ever before.

    Stanley/Falkland Islands

    Geographically, the Falkland Islands are part of Argentina, but politically they belong to the United Kingdom. British influences are evident throughout Stanley, the capital. The most striking example is the impressive Christ Church Cathedral, which adorns its centre. The Falkland Museum provides deep insights into Stanley’s past.

    South Georgia

    Fur seals, elephant seals and gigantic colonies of king penguins – South Georgia’s animal kingdom is one of our planet’s greatest wonders. The king penguins raise their young in the subantarctic summer and autumn – fluffy brown chicks crowding the shores like a huge kindergarten. Take a look behind the scenes of this unique animal paradise on walks, hikes and Zodiac rides.

    South Shetland Islands , Weddell Sea , Antarctic Peninsula

    South Shetland Islands
    The volcanic South Shetland Islands create a striking contrast to the untouched wilderness and expanse of the Weddell Sea. Nowhere are the tabular icebergs more majestic or the ice purer. Now, in the Antarctic spring, fresh powder snow covers much of the landscape. It is truly wonderful to watch the animals look for mates and prepare for their offspring. When you pass through the overwhelming Lemaire Channel and the spectacular Neumayer Channel, you will know that here, at the end of the world, you are closer to creation than ever before.

    Antarctic Peninsula
    Setting foot on the Antarctic mainland is an unforgettable experience. Tranquil and endless, the shimmering masses of ice stretch out before you and take your breath away. Get up-close to penguin colonies, the fascinating water ballet of the icebergs and mighty mountain ranges that guard the coast – the endless ice of the Antarctic Peninsula will make a profound impression on your heart and soul.

    Antarctic Sound and Weddell Sea
    The Weddell Sea and Antarctic Sound comprise one of the world’s most remote and challenging expedition regions. Spectacular tabular icebergs drift elegantly through the blue water as your expedition ship forges a path through the ice floes – and you have a front-row seat on deck.
