Polar Destinations - and it’s not just Antarctica, our polar cruises also visit two intriguing archipelagos. Little islands with big tales to tell, South Georgia is one of the most unique and bio-diverse places on Earth, and the Falkland Islands offer plenty of natural beauty. Both places are the perfect addition to your time cruising Antarctica.

South Georgia - has as much biodiversity as the famous Galápagos Islands. In all, 1,500 species call the brisk waters and chilly lands of South Georgia Island home. During your time on this little outpost you never know just what you’ll see.

Learn about Ernest Shackleton’s great heroics, the legacy of the whaling industry and the careful work that has been done to rejuvenate this environmentally precious corner of the world.

The Falkland Islands - feature spectacular populations of penguins, seals and albatross, and are so much more than the legacy of war and sovereignty claims lead you to believe.

A place of great beauty featuring white sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and windswept grasslands of buttercup yellows and sage greens, the Falklands are a revelation for the first-time visitor.

Excursions & Experiences - your time on Scenic Eclipse includes an average of two Zodiac excursions each day on the Antarctic Peninsula*, a range of activities, lectures and opportunities designed to immerse you in the Antarctic way of life courtesy of our Discovery Leaders and their team, plus the chance to go above, beyond and below with our helicopters and submarine.

Submarine & Helicopters - across all of our Antarctica cruises are two seven-seat helicopters and a seven-seat submarine, that will give guests exclusive access to some of the world’s most spectacular and least visited locations.

There’s no limit to where you can go. Venture further inland than most on the Antarctic continent and have the thrill of landing on the ice and seeing wildlife in their natural habitat.

Shore Excursions - discovery just got even more exciting thanks to our handcrafted itineraries filled with extraordinary experiences across all of our Antarctica cruises. Our fleet of 12 custom-made Zodiacs and Kayaks are perfect for the many shore excursions you’ll have on and off the ice.

Imagine cruising Antarctic waters alongside breaching whales or soaring high above an ice shelf? Our expert Discovery Leaders and their team will make sure you don’t miss a minute of it.
