    Discover the unique culture and history of the Falkland Islands and South Georgia

    Famed for their role in whaling and exploration history, the Falkland Islands and South Georgia—a British overseas territory—offer an intriguing cultural experience.

    South Georgia served as a major hub for the Antarctic whaling industry in the early 20th century. Explore the remnants of abandoned whaling stations and pay tribute to the legendary Sir Ernest Shackleton at his grave.

    Immerse yourself in the incredible wildlife of South Georgia, including millions of penguins and breeding birds, thousands of seals, and over fifty per cent of the world’s population of Southern elephant seals. As you wander the beaches, be captivated by the magnificent presence of king penguins.

    If the wildlife alone isn't enough to take your breath away, the stunning backdrop of mountains, fjords, and glaciers will leave you speechless.
