Antarctic Expedition Cruises

Antarctic Peninsula

The Antarctic Peninsula is an 800-mile (1,300 km) stretch of land and ice extending northward from the Antarctic continent towards South America. First-time visitors, especially, are humbled by the staggering beauty of the Antarctic: icebergs, glaciers, snow-covered mountain tops and incredible wildlife. People who dream of visiting the 7th Continent typically start here on the peninsula, which is ice-covered and mountainous.

South Georgia

South Georgia has only a handful of temporary inhabitants and that contingent is primarily researchers and scientists. The slightly crescent-shaped, mountainous island is known for its diverse wildlife, glaciers and fjords, as well as wildlife. South Georgia is sometimes called the "Galapagos of the Poles" because of the massive king penguin colony at Salisbury Plain, and other wildlife, including the thousands of fur and elephant seals.

The Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)

From Magellanic penguins to military history! The Argentines call it Islas Malvinas. To the British, this south Atlantic archipelago is known as the Falkland Islands. While it's the southern-most point of South America, the Falklands are a bastion of British culture and traditions. Located about 400 km northeast of Tierra del Fuego, the Falklands are known for their wildlife (penguins and bird species are plentiful) as well as their dramatic history.

Snow Hill Island

You've got one main reason or perhaps 10,000 to visit remote Snow Hill Island off the east coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Snow Hill Island is home to a rarely-visited colony of 4,000 pairs of breeding Emperor penguins and their offspring. That's about 10,000 penguins in one relatively small space. The survival and breeding habits of this particular type of penguins have long fascinated nature-lovers. Not only do they thrive in bitterly cold temperatures as low as -60C (-76F)but they're the only species of penguin to breed and incubate their eggs on ice rather than on shore.
