Polar Regions Antarctica Cruise

South Georgia Grand Tour

Few places on the planet compare to South Georgia in terms of exotic wildlife and jaw-dropping scenery, and the Falklands are no different. On this exploratory 18-day voyage aboard 170-guest Hondius, you can see both.

Sail from Puerto Madryn, Argentina, on the coast of northern Patagonia, watching for the southern right whales known to frequent this region. Take in the endemic birds of the Falkland Islands, plus sea lions, elephant seals, dolphins and the world’s largest black-browed albatross colony. The Falklands are also home to various penguins including Magellanic, gentoo, rockhoppers and kings.

In South Georgia, aim to see more of the wildlife from the Falkland Islands, plus great wandering albatrosses, macaroni penguins, chinstrap penguins, South Georgia pipits, Antarctic prions and petrels. Disembark in Ushuaia, Argentina, an excellent starting point for iconic Patagonia adventures.

Travel in comfort aboard 170-guest Hondius, a modern small ship purpose built for expedition cruising in polar waters. Hondius combines performance, safety and stability with superior comfort and class. This ship features forward-thinking core technology that pairs guests with an efficient, sustainability-focused expedition ship.
