Ultimate Antarctica: Weddell Sea & Falklands

This exciting expedition provides great diversity and will appeal to those seeking a truly comprehensive Antarctic experience. Included are visits to the South Shetland Islands, the western and northern sections of the Antarctic Peninsula, the stunning Weddell Sea region, and the historic location of Elephant Island – a place forever connected to the epic story of Sir Ernest Shackleton. Adding to the experience will be a visit to several locations in the Falkland Islands, including the homes of nesting albatross and the colorful King penguin. Throughout the voyage, our expedition ship acts as a floating wilderness lodge, which we reposition every day to yet another exciting location. You will be spoiled for choice by all of the activities we have planned.

Ship Information

The M/V Akademik Ioffe is a Russian-flagged vessel built in 1989 in Finland. She is 117 metres long and travels at a maximum speed of 14.5 knots. She carries 96 passengers and 63 crew. An extremely experienced captain and crew and an ice-strengthened hull provides an exceptionally safe combination for expedition cruising. Designed as a scientific research vessel, she has undergone extensive refitting and refurbishment over the last five years oriented towards her role as an expedition cruise vessel. This small number of passengers, matched with 10 Zodiacs and an equal number of experienced expedition staff, means that excursions are in depth and up close.
