The frozen continent

Set sail through icy waters as we journey from Ushuaia to Antarctica. When we arrive in the thrilling and otherworldly seventh continent, we’ll enter expedition mode. We will monitor the conditions in order to select the best adventure possible, and will attempt kayaking, ice-cruising, wildlife watching, hiking, and more.

Lush landscapes of the Falklands

Explore the rolling green hills and white sands of the picturesque Falklands archipelago. Enjoy a visit to the charming capital, Stanley, and see the penguin, albatross, and seal colonies that populate the shores.
