Antarctic Peninsula Regarded by many as one of the most beautiful places on earth with 1300 km of jaw dropping landscapes and wonderfully unique wildlife including seals (leopard, weddell & elephant) penguins (Adélie, chinstrap, macaroni, gentoo & emperor) & whales (southern right, killer, humpback & minke).
South Georgia Although associated with the falklands islands which are part of South America, South Georgia is closest to Antarctica located 1400km east of the falklands islands it is not the easiest destination to get to taking two days by boat to complete the journey. The sheer isolation however, is somewhat of an attraction to wildlife & adventure enthusiasts as well as its breathtaking beauty and abundance of wildlife. It is also home to the largest king penguin colony on earth which is truly a remarkable sight that very few people are lucky enough to witness.
Lemaire Channel Known for being the most photogenic place in all of Antartica it is a must see on your way to the Antarctic peninsula with stunning backdrops that are unrivalled anywhere else in the world. It is also a brilliant place for wildlife watching with the possibility to catch a glimpse of the Adélie penguin, hourglass dolphin, humpback whale, macaroni penguin, killer whale, crab eater seal and the Antarctic minke whale its well worth a visit.
