A final frontier for many intrepid travellers, there are few places on earth more remote or awe-inspiring than Antarctic. The Antarctic Peninsula is the most accessible area of Antarctica and one of the most beautiful. Breathtaking vistas of icebergs, glaciers and vast snowy mountains act as a backdrop to iconic penguin rookeries. Discover a huge diversity of birdlife, including Gentoo, Chinstrap and Adelie penguins, Storm Petrels, Skuas and Terns. Polar mammals including Weddell and crabeater seals, orcas and humpback whales are often sighted on icebergs and in the surrounding waters.
The untouched sub-Antarctic Islands scattered around the continent are home to a diverse range of unique wildlife and birdlife that cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. Often referred to as “The Galapagos of the Southern Ocean” South Georgia is possibly the best of all and offers an incredible concentration of wildlife. Massive colonies of king penguins can be found on the beachfront along with hundreds of fur and elephant seals making for a truly remarkable sight.
