Polar Regions Antarctica Cruise

Antarctic Latitudes, Falklands & South Georgia

The 20-day Antarctic Latitudes, Falklands & South Georgia voyage explores iconic Antarctic places, including the westernmost settled outposts in the Falkland Islands, the sheltered harbor of Stanley with lively pubs and historic museum, and of course, the Antarctic Peninsula. With 20 or more days to explore, this voyage offers a complete checklist of animals and icebergs. 

The unique positioning of South Georgia inside the Antarctic Convergence provides the perfect exposure to tens of millions of breeding penguins, seals and seabirds in their home environment. Exploration by Zodiacs and kayaks through the most scenic bays and channels of the Antarctic Peninsula create once-in-a-lifetime memories. And time at sea provides opportunities for whale watching and navigating icebergs aboard two of the most luxury expedition vessels sailing these polar waters.

Italian-built sister ships, the 112-guest Island Sky and 114-guest Hebridean Sky (formally known as the Sea Explorer), operate this itinerary. In addition to the main 20-day itinerary that begins and ends in Ushuaia, there are slightly longer voyages that begin in Puerto Madryn and end in Ushuaia. Both itineraries add a second pre-cruise hotel overnight in the port of embarkation for the 2020-21 season. The ships’ elegance and focus on quality service, relaxation and refinement create a truly luxurious atmosphere for guests exploring the world’s most remote and harsh environments.
