On the way to South Georgia, we are in the company of seabirds and also on the lookout for marine mammals, especially whales which migrate south at this time of the year.

South Georgia

We have ample time to explore South Georgia’s spectacular coast, including the world’s largest king penguin rookeries and majestic albatross nests. In Stromness and Grytviken harbours, 3000-metre peaks form dramatic backdrops to the remains of whaling stations. Kelp-strewn beaches are cluttered with basking elephant seals, feisty fur seals and penguins. We also follow in the footsteps of the great explorer, Ernest Shackleton, and pay our respects at his grave in Grytviken.

We spend our last days organising out thousands of images and looking out for final glimpses of seabirds and whales.

Now that I am back from my odyssey voyage, I thought I would let you know that after all that planning it really did exceed my expectations – we managed landings everywhere even on Tristan da Cuhna and had great bird sightings. The guides all knew what they were talking about too and made sure I got some great photos – still sorting them all out! Thanks for everything and see you at Birdfair!

Dave Martin

I want to thank you for all you did to make my recent Falklands trip run so smoothly and comfortably. Thank you for all your help over the diet too.

Dr Lorna Mairs

Just a quick note to express my sincere thanks to you and all your staff for making this an epic adventure of immense proportions. Everything went smoothly, pickups, hotels and most of all the expedition itself. Truly a mind blowing experience unlike any I have ever taken.
