ANTARCTIC FOCUS
Highlight of the brochure: mythical White Continent holds real fascination. To access the “sixth continent”, you will sail through the famous Drake Passage to reach the peninsula’s polar front, where time and space take on a new significance. Further on, South Georgia and its black-sand beaches play host to thousands of king penguins. The Falkland Islands, as for them, offers a stunning spectacle, as the last sanctuary of the elegant black-browed albatross is home to a fascinating range of protected wildlife. At sea, it’s the majestic humpback whales and imposing fin whales that will catch your eye.
