The Falkland Islands are nothing short of remarkable, a sub-Antarctic world heaving with penguins, seals and the world’s largest black-browed albatross colony. This British territory has been long been a subject of controversy with France, Spain, Britain and Argentina all having laid claim to its beautiful rolling landscapes. Though perhaps best known for the 1982 Falklands War, the Falklands boast a fascinating naval history, a rich local culture and truly iconic wildlife and birdlife – don’t miss an opportunity to experience this remote, rewarding destination.

Highlights

Uncover the diverse wildlife and storied history of these remote islands, beginning in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires and ending in Ushuaia, the gateway to Tierra del Fuego National Park.

Customise your trip with optional activities, perhaps choosing to explore the water by kayak or rejuvenate with some onboard yoga and a massage.

Whereas most polar expeditions of this kind have a crew-to-passenger ratio of ten, fifteen or twenty to one, Intrepid expeditions on the Ocean Endeavour have an expedition crew member for every 8 passengers for a greater personal touch.

Our experienced leaders have made hundreds of polar voyages between them. They’re experts in marine biology, glaciology and Antarctic history, and they’ll share their knowledge throughout the journey during a comprehensive lecture program.

Rest assured that footprints are all you’ll leave behind. Your Antarctica expedition is carbon offset, and we serve only sustainably sourced seafood, avoid single-use plastics and use biodegradable and phosphate-free cleaning products.

Travelling solo? This is your perfect Antarctic adventure, with single cabins at the same price as some twins.
