The Antarctic is one the few remaining places where you are alone surrounded by penguins, seals and whales. It is as pure nature as you can get today; walking on an iceberg, cruising along glaciated islands occupied by shags, skuas and albatrosses,
and standing in front of thousands of King Penguins. There is no bird there that is afraid of humans, and you are not likely to see another boat during your voyage. Revisiting the Falkland Islands, the cliffs and hills of South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula during the southern summer season: a unique experience.
