A unique opportunity to combine a fascinating voyage through Antarctic waters aboard a small (54 berth) expedition ship, the Polar Pioneer with an historic trek across the icefields on South Georgia. The journey starts and finishes in Ushuaia, South America’s southernmost city, and takes you across the Drake’s passage to the Weddell Sea and the Antarctic Peninsula. We make landings wherever possible to explore this fascinating region on foot. We then head north again, visiting Elephant Island and the South Orkney Islands, before reaching South Georgia where you can join an (optional) 2 or 3 day Alpine Crossing of the island – a demanding but very rewarding undertaking. Finally we call in on the Falkland Islands for a couple of days of exploration before returning to Ushuaia..

Throughout the journey you will be able to observe magnificent scenery, learn about the flora, fauna and history of the region from the ship’s guides and lectures.

The 2016 and 2017 departures finish at Port Stanley in the Falklands and from there you fly to either Punta Arenas or Santiago.
