Antarctica remains the world’s greatest wilderness realm. On this extraordinary voyage of discovery, we explore three iconic and contrasting regions of the great Southern Ocean surrounding the White Continent.

In the company of Worldwide Quest naturalists, our onboard team of expedition staff and a stellar roster of Canadian university study leaders – including Western University professor Brent Sinclair, experience the thrill of early season exploration in the Falkland Islands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula. Read Brent’s blog post about the upcoming trip here.

Prepare to be astonished by the Falkland Islands’ wild and rugged landscapes, the fantastic variety of bird species, and the chance to see up to five of the world’s penguin species including the King Penguin in this remote location.

South Georgia is one of the most dramatic and least visited places on earth. We’ll wade ashore on the vast beaches to immerse ourselves in the largest colony of king penguins in the world, observe gargantuan elephant seals, and retrace the last leg of Shackleton’s epic journey. For sheer wildlife extravagance, there’s no place like this ‘Serengeti of the South.’

Arriving at the Antarctic Peninsula itself, we’ll find springtime conditions of pristine and gleaming white. Massive glaciers and icebergs and imposing mountains surround us. We’ll visit the Peninsula’s highlight locations, home to the greatest collection of Antarctic wildlife and some of the most dramatic scenery in the world.
