In Shackleton's Footsteps

In Shackleton's Footsteps
This all-encompassing voyage covers the wildlife havens of the Antarctic Peninsula,
South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, as well as heading deep into the continent
to the Weddell Sea. You'll enter a world inhabited by king penguins, the second
tallest in the world, elephant seals and killer whales (orcas), plus various other
penguin species. You're also in Shackleton's domain, and will see where this
pioneering explorer's crew survived for four months in the harsh Antarctic winter.

Tour Highlights

  • Follow in Shackleton's footsteps into the heart of Antarctica
  • View colonies of king penguins, fur & elephant seals
  • Sail alongside orca whales
  • Travel into the Weddell Sea - one of Antarctica's premier wildlife havens
  • Travelling on a smaller ship helps you get closer to land and make new friends
