Flying from Dublin to Buenos Aires (or Santiago) and then on to Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego, we embark on our voyage across the Drake Passage to spend 19 nights/20 days sailing to the Falklands, South Georgia, South Orkneys and around the Antarctic Peninsula witnessing the dramatic scenery and the biggest variety of wildlife in Antarctica
Join us on the adventure of a lifetime to the white continent and be part of this incredible expedition. You will get the chance to do 15 landings (approx.) and also walk the last few kilometers of the famous crossing route of Shackleton & Crean.
Historic Whaling stations, Shackleton's grave, Remote scientific stations and a possible overnight on the Antarctic Peninsula itself. Teeming with wildlife, these waters are a haven for many types of Penguins, Whales, Seals, Albatross, Petrels, Terns, Skua, Sheatbills, Comorants, Shags and lots of icebergs.
Antarctica is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Its gigantic icebergs and ice shelves are found nowhere else on the globe. Its vast mountain ranges and the enormous emptiness of the polar plateau is something to be seen. Travelling there is like visiting no other country. Antarctica is the last vast wilderness on our planet. The sub-zero temperatures, winds and weather literally send shivers down the spine. It's a place of extremes - beautiful and serene, savage and violent - and its scale is almost unfathomable.

But be warned, weather and ice - not clocks and calendars - set the schedule for a journey here. No matter what the reason for your visit, you'll be at the mercy of the continent's changing moods and weather patterns. This amazing adventure will knock the stuffing out of the costa del sol so start putting away the pennies as you will only need to do this once in a lifetime/bucket list trip.
