Combine These Extraordinary Islands with Your Cruise to Antarctica

Combine your visit to Antarctica with an exploration of some of the least-visited places on Earth: South Georgia Island and the Falkland Islands. These islands offer extraordinary wildlife viewing, plus dramatic landscapes, fascinating history, and the tranquility of truly remote isolation. South Georgia Island is considered one of the most spectacular places on earth, and this combination program is considered one of the greatest expedition cruising itineraries in the world.

Key Things to Know for South Georgia Island and Falklands Cruises

Unmatched wildlife viewing: These islands offer unparalleled density of wildlife, including vast penguin colonies, seal breeding grounds, and albatross nesting sites.
Unspoiled scenery: Remote and untouristed, this area is known for its pristine landscapes.
History and photography: Whether your interests lie more toward nature photography or the human side of things (think whalers, sailors, and early explorers), this region is sure to fascinate.
Top highlights: Saint Andrew's Bay, a breeding colony for hundreds of thousands of King Penguins, plus countless seals. Grytviken, a former whaling station and home to the gravesite of renowned polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. Steeple Jason, the world's largest albatross colony. Port Stanley, a photogenic, Victorian-style village.
A long journey: These cruises cover a lot of distance, so they are long voyages, with more time at sea than most Antarctica cruises. For travelers with a more limited timeframe, you may prefer a classic Antarctic Peninsula cruise. If you're looking to minimize your days on the open water, you might consider an Antarctica Fly & Cruise trip.
