Why Join This Cruise

  • Combines two of the most compelling wildlife destinations on the planet in a single extraordinary trip. Follow in the footsteps of Shackleton and Darwin on this ultimate voyage
  • Wonderful wildlife opportunities – from penguins and great whales in Antarctica to Galapagos’s exotic menagerie of sea lions, marine iguanas, giant tortoises and blue footed boobies
  • Travel by small expeditionary ship in the company of knowledgeable guides with daily landings by zodiac and on foot exploring the scenery, fauna and flora of these two truly amazing places

Trip Overview
Undertake the ultimate voyage by combining the coldest, highest and windiest continent on earth with one of the world’s most enchanting and extraordinary tropical archipelagoes, both renowned for their extraordinary scenery and wildlife. In Antarctica, weave amongst vast glittering icebergs, observe the playful antics of gentoo, adelie and chinstrap penguins and catch sightings of great whales, while in Galapagos, swap your thermals for shorts and a sun hat, and island hop as Darwin did, snorkelling with sea lions and turtles, skirting around basking marine iguanas and experiencing the elegant courtship of the wandering albatross. Tailor-made departures between November and March.
