Falkland Islands Discovery

From £3705 for 10 days
Trip Overview

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.

Trip 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.

Where you'll be staying

Ocean Endeavour 2020

Not only is the Ocean Endeavour the only polar expedition ship in Antarctica focused on health and wellness – it also has, on our new voyages starting in 2020, one crew member for every eight travellers. This outstanding crew-to-passenger ratio means a greater personal touch and more time with onboard experts. With contemporary interiors, lounges for learning and reflection, Zodiacs for remote exploration, a wide range of cabin types, a surplus of space and breathtaking 360° views from the flydeck, the Ocean Endeavour is the Antarctic expedition vessel to be on in 2020.

Itinerary & Notes
Your sub-Antarctic adventure begins in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s lively capital. You can arrive at any time and independently transfer to the group hotel – accommodation is included for the night. After checking in, meet your fellow travellers and be briefed by the expedition team about the journey ahead. There’s plenty to see and do if you arrive into BA early too. Perhaps explore the neighbourhood of La Boca, pay your respects to Eva Peron at the famous Recoleta Cemetery or search through the antique markets of San Telmo. If all else fails, sample some of the steak and wine Argentina is so famous for.
