Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falklands: January 2013

February 23, 2012 | By

January 2 – 23, 2013

In the spirit of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Antarctica expedition, our exploration of the White Continent offers in-depth Antarctica, South Georgia, and Falkland Islands adventure travel – all while seamlessly combining rich natural history with some of Mother Nature’s most rugged and dramatic landscapes. Your three-week Antarctica expedition takes place at the height of the austral summer; long daylight hours provide extra time for Zodiac trips to remote shores where you’ll be in the rare company of thousands of penguins; seals and albatross; and the otherworldly, icy architecture of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Antarctica Expedition highlights include:

  • Antarctica tour experts, personalizing your experience through daily recaps, lectures, and guided excursions—a hallmark of Zegrahm’s Antarctica expeditions.
  • Opportunity to visit a research station, where a global team of scientists are unlocking the secrets of the continent and its inhabitants.
  • Comfortable accommodations aboard the 110-guest Clipper Adventurer, customized for a rugged Antarctica expedition.
  • Plus, Adelie penguins in the South Orkney Islands; Shackleton’s legacy in South Georgia; and the opportunity to set foot on the Antarctic continent.
  • Falkland Islands tour by Zodiac—gentoo penguins, and albatross are often encountered on this Falkland Islands expedition.

What to expect:

An Antarctica expedition is considered one of life’s greatest travel accomplishments – and one most enjoyed by those with a healthy spirit of adventure. During your voyage, you can expect to climb in and out of Zodiacs and walk moderate distances over uneven terrain, on the beaches of the sub-Antarctic islands and the ice and snow of the Antarctic Peninsula. Temperatures, while dipping as low as 30°F, feel quite temperate, thanks to sunshine and low humidity. To whet your appetite for your Falkland Islands expedition and the surrounding environs, we’ll mail you a reading and recommended clothing list prior to departure. We look forward to introducing you to the White Continent.
