Join us as we explore the some of the routes and landings of Shackleton’s 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 albatross, sea elephants, fur and leopard seals, whales galore, and literally millions of penguins. For the truly adventurous traveller, Antarctica is the ultimate destination. In October and November, the pack ice begins to break up, and the landscape is pristine with plenty of fresh snow. It’s mating season for the penguins and other birds. Adélie, Chinstrap and Gentoo penguins and other seabirds return to their breeding sites. You’re likely to witness courtship displays, nest building and egg tending. In South Georgia, elephant seals and fur seals are mating, and king penguins are laying their eggs. Parents can be seen “carrying” eggs on their feet so that one parent can shuffle around the colony while the other adult goes out to sea to feed.
Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime journey to the great southern continent!
Located in the Patagonian province of Chubut, Puerto Madryn is one of Argentina's fastest growing cities and the gateway to the Peninsula Valdés. Puerto Madryn is a popular resort destination for wildlife excursions; visit a sea lion colony, or take a whale watching trip to view the southern right whales; watch for nesting cormorants and magnificent elephant seals, or experience a walk through a colony of Magellanic penguins and myriad species of native seabirds.
