shackleton adventure tour mapThis exclusive and highly sought after expedition departs only once each year, in January, and will include tour guides, Zodiac tours of ice-bergs, native flora and fauna, and quaint fishing villages. Your trip starts in scenic Ushuaia, no, I have no idea where that is either, but I’ll bet it’s cold. From your hotel in Ushuaia, you’ll merrily jaunt along to the Falkland Islands, meeting some of the hardy and rustic folk of that place. Perhaps you can try trading some colourful beads, or pirated copies of Game of Thrones, for some fresh fish and handcrafted goods!

From there the tour will take you to beautiful South Georgia, where you can respectfully lay a wreath of smoked herring on the grave of Shackleton himself, spending a few moments to ponder the irony of your own luxurious trek in the footsteps of his heroic exploration team. You’ll also get to explore some of the safer and more decorative parts of Antarctica, hob nobbing with seals and penguins by day, and returning to a tasty, well cooked meal on board the MS Expedition before retiring to your warm and comfy cabins in the evening.shackleton adventure tour antarctica
