17-day Antarctica tour

The arrival of your transfer flight at the Falkland Islands. Welcome to Stanley, the charmingly British capital of the Falkland Islands. Attractions within pleasant walking distance along the waterfront promenade include the Falkland Islands Museum, the governor’s house, a cathedral with an impressive whalebone arch outside, a war memorial, quality gift shops, pubs, and views of shipwrecks in the harbor. We provide a group transfer to the pier and welcome you aboard the luxury expedition ship M/V Sea Spirit. Explore the ship and get comfortable in your home away from home for an extraordinary adventure.

The remote and sparsely-populated Falkland Islands are a birders’ paradise. We anticipate visiting one or more of the isolated outer islands on the south of the archipelago, which are particularly important for their colonies of cormorants and different breeding birds that have been recorded there, including Magellanic, southern rockhopper, macaroni, and gentoo penguin. The Falklands are also a great place to observe marine mammals. Fur and elephant seals can be found on sandy beaches, while the waters in and around the archipelago are home to various whale and dolphin species. Our route and exploration opportunities depend on the weather among these windswept islands.

Breakfast, Dinner

From the Falkland Islands, we head east toward South Georgia, passing the remote, seabird-covered pinnacles known as Shag Rocks. We also cross the Antarctic Convergence, the biological boundary of the Southern Ocean. Briefings, bio-security procedures, and lectures from our expert staff prepare you for our arrival in South Georgia.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This is expedition cruising at its most authentic. Our route and exploration opportunities in South Georgia heavily depend on the weather conditions we encounter. Our experienced captain and expedition leader decide the itinerary and continually adjust plans as conditions and opportunities warrant. You can be sure that the best possible advantage will be taken of the circumstances presented to us by Nature in this wild and remote corner of the world. We take every safe opportunity to go ashore in this amazing place.

South Georgia is a scenic wilderness and an unrivaled paradise for subantarctic wildlife viewing. The islands are said to host upwards of 100 million seabirds, including numerous albatross species, penguins, prions, petrels, and terns. On beaches such as those at Salisbury Plain and St. Andrews Bay, over 100,000 elephant seals and three million fur seals jostle for space among innumerable penguins, including stately king penguins and sprightly macaroni penguins. The recently completed rat eradication program is sure to make this wilderness even more pristine and rich with birdlife.

The bountiful waters surrounding South Georgia are also inhabited by an increasing number of whales. The historical whaling station of Grytviken is now home to the excellent South Georgia Museum, managed by the South Georgia Heritage Trust. This is also the final resting place of Ernest Shackleton, the legendary polar explorer.

Our days in South Georgia are filled with memorable excursions, sumptuous meals, presentations by our experts, and enough incredible scenery and wildlife to fill your camera and overwhelm your emotions.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After our fantastic time in South Georgia, we proceed southwest toward the Antarctic Peninsula. Pelagic seabirds, including the majestic albatross, are common in these waters and can readily be viewed from panoramic open decks or exterior stateroom windows and balconies.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The wilderness of Antarctica is subject to unpredictable weather and ever-changing ice conditions, which dictate our route and exploration opportunities. This is a genuine expedition. We exploit every opportunity to experience excellent wildlife viewing, fantastic scenery, and excursions via Zodiac.

The Antarctic Peninsula region contains some of the world’s most impressive scenery and some of Antarctica’s best wildlife viewing opportunities. Protected bays and narrow channels are surrounded by towering mountain peaks covered in permanent snow and immense glaciers. Icebergs of every size and description complete an image of incomparable beauty. Waters rich with krill are home to various whale and seal species. The whole area is alive with penguins foraging at sea and forming large nesting colonies at unique places on land. The area is also home to Antarctic research stations of various nationalities. Some stations have a gift shop and post office.

The South Shetland Islands are the northernmost islands in Antarctica and will likely be our first sighting of land. This wild and beautiful island chain contains numerous landing sites with abundant wildlife and historical significance. Among them is Elephant Island, where men from Shackleton’s famous Endurance expedition spent the winter.

Farther south, on the Antarctic Peninsula, the vast Gerlache Strait area contains sheltered bays, accessible wildlife, and stunning scenery.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

From Antarctica, we head north through the Drake Passage toward South America. Presentations and workshops by our expert staff and our range of onboard recreation facilities ensure that these days at sea are not idly spent. This is also the time for our End of Voyage ceremonies, including slideshow and farewell dinner.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, we said farewell in the city of Ushuaia, where we started. We provide a group transfer to the airport or the town center if you wish to spend more time here. As you reflect on your wonderful experience in Antarctica, you may already be looking forward to your next incredible adventure to the ice!


A voyage that combines the Falkland Islands, also known as Malvinas, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula, promises to be an unforgettable experience. The Falkland Islands is a rich historical destination and offers visitors sensational landscapes and excellent bird-watching opportunities. South Georgia is a destination that truly needs to be experienced in person. With the massive king penguin colonies and beaches teeming with fur and elephant seals, the sights, sounds, and smells will be a memory you will never forget. The Antarctic Peninsula, with its Zodiac cruises, offers an action-packed environment where you will witness hunting orcas, calving glaciers, humpbacks feeding, and penguins fledging. Every creature is fighting to survive in this mesmerizing landscape.

What type of weather should I prepare for on a 21-day Antarctica tour?

When planning a polar cruise, it is important to be aware of the varying weather conditions that can be encountered. The temperatures in the polar regions are typically near freezing, but the extended daylight hours, with 18-24 hour days, can make it feel milder. Some passengers have even reported feeling comfortable enough to wear a t-shirt. However, it is important to note that fog and white-outs, as well as other adverse weather conditions, can also be present and should be taken into consideration when preparing for your trip.

Single supplement fee waiver for solo travelers on Antarctica tour cruises?

Solo travelers have the option to participate in our Request-Share program which matches them with another solo traveler of the same gender to share a cabin and save on the single supplement fee. If a cabin-mate cannot be found, the single supplement will be waived. It is important to note that solo travel in Antarctica is seen as a personal experience, and many travelers enjoy the freedom and flexibility that comes with traveling alone.

What are the additional expenses not included in the Antarctica tour cruise?

Airfare to the starting and ending points of the cruises is not included, but we do offer flight arrangements for those who want comprehensive planning. All passengers are required to have comprehensive travel insurance with a minimum coverage of $200,000 for Antarctica. Insurance is not included in our Antarctica tour packages. Some passengers may need to purchase additional outdoor clothing before the trip, which is an important part of the planning process. A good quality parka is included in the cost of the expedition, and waterproof boots are provided as needed. Please review the packing list provided by our staff and follow the guidelines.

Are tips included?

Gratuities or ‘tips’ for the crew’s service can be made in cash or charged to your on-board account and are at your discretion. We recommend budgeting 20 USD per person, per day for the Antarctic cruise. Gratuities will be collected anonymously at the end of each voyage and distributed among the staff and crew.
