Scattered across the southern Atlantic Ocean you will find a seldom-visited string of remote, rugged islands, each with its own unique character and rich human history.

Sail the waters made famous by Shackleton and be entranced by his incredible tale of survival against the odds. Set foot on a sandy beach, profoundly outnumbered by dignified king penguins in some of their largest colonies on earth. Be entertained by mischievous fur seals as they luxuriate in lush glacial outwash plains.

Explore the historic town of Stanley in the Falkland Islands~Malvinas, discover relics from South Georgia’s whaling era and possibly even visit a working research station in the South Orkneys.
