Enquire About Epic Antarctica: Crossing the Circle via Falklands and South Georgia from Buenos Aires by Quark

When Do You Want To Go?

This is the once in a lifetime expedition, taking in the spectacular flora and fauna of the Falkland Islands before immersing yourself in the unique history and exquisite, rare wildlife of South Georgia.

The Falkland archipelago contains two main islands, East and West, which you will explore by Zodiac excursions and daily landings. South Georgia is full of history, but it is the wildlife here that is truly fascinating. Often referred to as the 'Galapagos of the Poles', South Georgia contains an exceptional quantity of wildlife, which means each landing has a new sight to behold.

You'll visit Antarctic research stations, witness minke whales breaching from your Zodiac, share magical moments with king penguins and celebrate crossing the Antarctic Circle with like-minded travellers, an experience that you will cherish forever.
