Cruise Overview

Antarctica Cruise | Life Returns - Springtime Expedition to Antarctica

See the untouched icescapes of Antarctica in its late spring as the glaciers and icebergs are at their most sparkly and pristine 

Visit the beautiful, windswept Falkland Islands and South Georgia at the height of mating season 

Go ice-cruising in small expedition boats and join landings with your expert Expedition Team  

Wonderful islands in the Southern Ocean

From windswept green hills to white-sand beaches, beauty and charm abound in the Falkland Islands. We know that the wildlife around here is plentiful, but South Georgia is in a class of its own – and the beaches are teeming with seals, penguins, and other seabirds. From here we’ll head to beautiful Buenos Aires for one last tango.

Amazing Antarctic wildlife

At this time of year, the snow is fresh from winter and towering icebergs glisten in newly sculpted grandeur. On land, the penguins court and build nests. Over the next five days, we’ll explore several landing sites where you can experience the frozen continent up close. Your cruise ends in Chile’s Patagonia region.
