South Georgia and Tristan da Cunha

Beautiful nature and wildlife

During our longest Antarctica voyage, sailing from Ushuaia to the Antarctica peninsula and all the way to Cape Town, South Africa, we will also make a visit to South Georgia and Tristan da Cunha. From the Weddell sea, the sails are hoisted for a serious sail to the island of South Georgia. Here, we will spend some time moving the ship from one fjord to the other and making landings ashore. Next to enjoying the beautiful nature and wildlife on this island, we will find the remains of a former wailing station at Grytviken and see the grave of Shackleton. It is an old tradition to drink a glass of whisky next to his grave.

After visiting South Georgia, course is set for Tristan da Cunha: the most remote island of the world. In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, a small community lives on top of an active volcano. On Tristan, you can play golf on the most remote course of the planet or go fishing for lobster with the local fisherman. The final leg of this voyage is the sail to Cape Town, where after about 10 days of sailing the Table Mountain will appear on the horizon.
