Exclusive Chimu Antarctica Charter: In Shackleton's Wake

 
This journey will take place on the Ocean Atlantic. This expedition introduce you to the magic of the antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, home to some of the planet's most impressive wildlife and most dramatic landscapes. Encounter whales, huge icebergs, enormous rookeries of penguins and stunning landscapes that few have ever witnessed. Throughout the voyage, our team of lecturers and guides will share their knowledge of the region's remarkable natural history. 
 
Antarctic Peninsula: The Antarctic Peninsula is the most popular due to accessibility and for the plethora of wildlife found. The coast offers a dramatic mountainous backdrop, being an extension of the Andes Mountain range.
 
Falkland Islands: Located about 500km from the South American coast and comprising more than 750 islands in the South Atlantic Ocean, the Falkland Islands are a haven for wildlife - home to large colonies of elephant seals and fur seals, vast populations of black-browed albatrosses and other abundant birdlife including five species of breeding penguin.
 
South Georgia: South Georgia is a remote yet magical island, exquisite in its beauty and virtually unspoilt by man. It is adorned with emerald green bays, blue glacier ice and formidable snow covered peaks. Home to over 30 million breeding birds, thousands of seals, the introduced Norwegian reindeer, four breeding species of penguin and the largest colony of king penguins on this planet - the island teems with life. The island was also an intrinsic part of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914 Trans-Antarctica Expedition on the Endurance, one of the most incredible adventure stories and most heroic survival stories of all times.
