Immerse yourself in another world on this in-depth exploration of Antarctica. Travel aboard the superbly equipped Ocean Endeavour and follow in the footsteps of the legendary explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton (though we’re guessing his vessel didn’t have a sauna). Set foot on the Antarctic Peninsula, spotting all sorts of wildlife from whales to penguins, and discover first-hand the story of Shackleton’s astounding ordeal on Elephant Island. This extensive expedition allows for a taste of the British-tinged Falkland Islands and more time in South Georgia, Antarctica’s own Galapagos, where penguins can number in the hundreds of thousands within a single colony. With optional adventures including ice camping and kayaking, and rare touches of five-star luxury thanks to an onboard spa and wellness centre, this is as good as Antarctic expedition travel gets.
