This classic exploration of the South Shetlands and the Antarctic Peninsula proper might be considered the best all-round, shorter Antarctic trip for the wildlife lover, with ample opportunities to view whales and seabirds and visit active penguin colonies. A long list of highlights includes a visit to Elephant Island - a location forever connected to the remarkable story of survival by Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men more than a century ago, a day spent exploring the icy Weddell Sea, and many well-known landing sites along the length of the Antarctic Peninsula as well as a few of its lesser-known hidden gems.

Our visits to active and historic research outposts will add another dimension to your appreciation. Towering glaciers, amazing wildlife encounters, snow-covered landscapes, massive icebergs and the option to choose your favourite activities every day make this popular voyage the perfect introduction to the white continent.
