Cruise Overview

Join us on a late-summer expedition to experience unique landscapes, wildlife and amazing sunsets in the white continent, the Falkland Islands and Puerto Madryn

Embark on a late austral summer expedition to explore both the Falklands and Puerto Madryn. Experience Antarctica when whale watching is at its best!

Join us on a late austral summer expedition to experience unmatched landscapes, unique wildlife, and amazing sunsets in the Great White Continent, the Falkland Islands, and Puerto Madryn.

Wilderness and wildlife

You’ll spend five days in Antarctica during the late austral summer months. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises paint the ice and snow in shades of gold, orange, and pink, accentuated by blooming snow algae. This is prime whale-watching time, and you’ll also get to see penguins in their final stage of molting. The Expedition Team will host lectures and guide landings and sea activities to really discover the frozen continent. We don’t have a set itinerary here, as Antarctica is known for its changing weather and sea ice. Instead, we’ll adjust our plans according to the elements to take you to the best available places.

Falkland Islands and Patagonia

After experiencing Antarctica and returning via the Drake Passage, contrast the Great White Continent’s icy wilderness with three days in the green and grassy Falklands. Visit the charming capital Stanley with its red English buses, restaurants, and charming pubs, and discover the variety of wildlife living on the more remote parts of the islands. Then we’ll reach the warm and inviting Puerto Madryn, known for its beaches and nearby nature reserve, before we end our expedition cruise back in Buenos Aires.
