Home » National Geographic Endurance: Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falklands (Fly the Falklands)
The ultimate Southern Ocean experience, this expedition has it all: the impossible beauty of Antarctic ice, the vast king penguin colonies of South Georgia, and the Falkland’s amazing albatross colonies. Venture into spectacular wilderness aboard the National Geographic Endurance and experience boundless wildlife and captivating beauty. Make the crossing one-way by air rather than sea via private charter flight between South America and the Falklands—allowing us to convert a day at sea into a day along the Antarctic Peninsula.
Duration: 22 Days
Arrive today in Buenos Aires. We check in to the fine, centrally located Alvear Art Hotel (or similar), and have the morning to relax before seeing the city’s Beaux-Arts palaces and the famous balcony associated with Eva Perón.
Today we fly by private charter to Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world. We have time to enjoy lunch on a catamaran cruise of the legendary Beagle Channel before embarking our ship.
Settle in to shipboard life as we sail to Antarctica. Keep a lookout for albatross that glide alongside the ship.
With long hours of daylight, we make the most of our days exploring the Antarctic Peninsula and surrounding islands. Our schedule is flexible, allowing us to take advantage of the unexpected. We’ll spend these days on the “White Continent,” exploring via Zodiac, kayak and on foot, and using our
arsenal of tools for exploration.
As we voyage, head up to the Bridge to watch for icebergs and observe expert navigation at work as our skilled Captain and officers sail these historic waters. There’ll also be time to enjoy a massage in the wellness center, workout in the gym, and browse in the library. Each day our naturalists offer talks that add depth to your experience.
This is the final resting place for explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, and conditions permitting, we'll hoist a toast at his gravesite. Teeming with wildlife and breathtaking scenery greet our ship. And at a vast penguin colonly you'll see tens of thousands of king penguins!
Whales beneath, birds above, as you continue on. Our naturalists will prepare us for the exciting days ahead with presentations on the wildlife and history of the Falkland Islands.
The Falklands boast albatross, king cormorants, nesting rockhopper penguins, and Magellanic penguins in their green tussock grass burrows. Stroll the photogenic colonial town of Stanley and visit the evocative Anglican Cathedral with its archway of whalebones.
Disembark in Port Stanley, Falkland Islands. Fly by charter to Santiago and for your onward travels.
