See king penguins up close, walking among the huge, clamorous colonies where they rear their young.

Steeped in Shackleton and whaling lore, covered mostly in glaciers, South Georgia explodes with life: king, gentoo, and macaroni penguins, enormous elephant seals and a thriving fur seal population. On South Georgia you can observe one of the world’s great wildlife spectacles: tens of thousands of stately king penguins on a single beach. See the human face of the region in the Falklands, reminiscent of Great Britain, with grazing sheep, tea and crumpets. And in this privileged place, the albatross reveal the beauty of their mysterious lives.

  • Walk amid stately king penguins—tens of thousands on a single beach in South Georgia.
  • Observe magnificent albatross in the Falklands, and see Magellanic penguins peeking from their burrows.
  • Hike in the footsteps of “the Boss,” Sir Ernest Shackleton, and hear his tale of survival.
  • Paddle a kayak amid curious fur seals, and explore in a Zodiac among the bergs.
  • Compare aperture settings side-by-side with a National Geographic photographer.

So join us, as South Georgia and the Falklands bursts with life after a fruitful summer. And, we've added some really fun time in Buenos Aires, with plenty of exclusive events. These are the ultimate destinations for jaw-dropping scenery, boundless wildlife and captivating history, and will affect the way you tell stories about travel and wildlife adventures for years to come.
