Totality in Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands | 20 days | Group Tour | from £20,900pp
Capture the magic of Antarctica, Falkland Islands and South Georgia as you embark on a once in a lifetime event to witness the total eclipse of the sun.
Embark the 189-passenger vessel Ocean Diamond, one of the fastest ships in Antarctica in Ushuaia, the 'city at the edge of the world'. From here, you'll navigate the Beagle Channel and Drake Passage to reach the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula, where you'll enjoy ice field hikes, wild penguin encounters and whale-spotting opportunities along the coast of the White Continent. In the Scotia Sea, en route from Antarctica and the South Georgia archipelago, you'll experience a unique event: a total solar eclipse in Antarctica, plunging the polar region into darkness.
After the eclipse, continue to South Georgia, a crescent-shaped island home to thousands upon thousands of king penguins. Spend three days getting to know the untamed wildlife and the landscapes they call home, before continuing on your cruise to the Falkland Islands, famous for their rugged landscapes and turbulent history.
