Falklands, South Georgia & Antarctica

Each year a number of expedition cruises include a stop at the Falklands on a journey to South Georgia and/or on to Antarctica. These itineraries usually only stay for a day or two visiting such places as West Point Island with notable colonies of rockhopper penguins and black-browed albatrosses,  Carcass Island with gentoo and magellan penguins and Stanley.  Amongst the birdlife are southern giant petrels, endemic Falkland steamer ducks,  kelp and dolphin gulls, black-crowned night herons, red-backed hawks and peregrine falcons.

Unquestionably, the longer 18-21 day itineraries which combine the Falklands Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica make for the very best of expeditions. These are sometimes referred to as  Epic or Ultimate Antarctica journeys.
