This journey includes all the major Antarctic highlights you can imagine. From the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) to South Georgia to the Antarctic Peninsula, you will have countless unforgettable moments on this adventure-packed, 23-day voyage. Start with the Falklands, reminiscent of both sandy Cape Cod and the English moors, home to albatross, dolphins, and five species of penguins. From there, venture to South Georgia where you’ll enter the home of 300,000 breeding king penguins, 50 million other seabirds and 5 million seals. Then, explore the stunning Antarctic Peninsula, and finally cross the Antarctic Circle—a significant milestone for any world traveller.

In January in Antarctica you’ll experience the days stretching on forever with up to 20 hours of sunlight. As sunlight and salt water begin to melt and erode icebergs, turning each one into an ever-changing work of art. The first penguin chicks begin to hatch in late December making January a great time to see adult penguins hunting for food or playing with their young.

This itinerary allows you to experience the pioneering new vessel, Ultramarine. This purpose-built vessel is designed to extend the boundaries of polar exploration and offer an unmatched Antarctic experience, including a flightseeing tour you’ll never forget on one of two helicopters stationed on the ship as well as a range of adventure options more extensive than any other ship in its class.
