Antarctica 2014 picture

This year marks a milestone in exploration, as we celebrate the centenary of Sir Ernest Shackleton's Endurance Expedition to Antarctica. Join us as we explore the routes and landings of his epic adventure. From the tip of Tierra del Fuego, to the Falkland Islands, the South Orkneys, South Georgia, and the Antarctic continent, this is a trip like no other. We'll revisit portions of Shackleton's South Georgia Island trek, and pay our respects at his grave in Grytviken. 

 Wildlife on these islands is almost beyond belief. We'll encounter whales, albatross, sea elephants, fur and leopard seals, whales galore, and literally millions of penguins. For the truly adventurous traveller, Antarctica is the ultimate destination. Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime journey to the great southern continent!
