  • 1

    Half Moon Island

    Enjoy a stay on this staggeringly photogenic island. We will explore the serrated and creviced cliffs, home to a large colony of chinstrap penguins.

  • 2

    Deception Island

    This distinctive ring-shaped volcanic caldera has a navigable opening into the flooded interior.

  • 3

    Yankee Harbour

    One of the main sights here is the large colony of gentoo penguins, estimated to be 4,000 breeding pairs.

  • 4

    Antarctic Sound

    The huge ice shelves of the Antarctic continent give birth to mile-long tabular icebergs. The strong currents of the Weddell Sea bring these massive flat-topped bergs north into the Antarctic Sound.

  • 5

    Brown Bluff

    This 2,440 ft high, rust-coloured bluff is volcanic and the beach is peppered with lava “bombs”.

  • 6

    Cuverville Island

    Cuverville Island boasts the largest known colony of gentoo penguins in the Antarctic Peninsula.

  • 7

    Neko Harbour

    Neko is one of the places in this area where we have a chance to land on the Antarctic mainland.

  • 8

    Paradise Harbour

    Paradise Harbour offers another rare opportunity for a mainland landing.

  • 9

    Lemaire Channel

    This wide channel is one of the most beautiful passages in Antarctica.

    Antarctic Circle

    We hope to explore beyond the Circle at 66°33’ south - far beyond the limit of most cruises in Antarctica - on some of our expeditions between January and March.

  • 11

    Falkland Islands

    Vast open spaces and white sandy beaches will greet you in the Falklands. Known as a birdwatcher’s paradise, the islands also host five different species of penguins.

  • 12

    South Georgia

    Home to stunning fjords, mountains and beaches, South Georgia provides a perfect environment for animals to flourish. Expect to see seals and an abundance of penguin colonies.
