Discover Islas Malvinas, the extraordinary Falklands archipelago off the coast of Patagonia
Brimming with penguins, seals and the largest black-browed albatross colony in the world, the Falkland Islands are nothing short of a remarkable sub-Antarctic destination. Located 490 kilometres east of Patagonia in the South Atlantic Ocean, this much-fought-over territory has been variously settled and claimed by France, Spain, Britain and Argentina, and it’s not hard to see why. En route from Buenos Aires, touch down in the Falklands and discover not only iconic wildlife and birdlife, but also vast swathes of beautiful rolling landscapes, a fascinating naval history and a local culture rich in British charm. Waste no time in experiencing this extraordinary sub-Antarctic zone for yourself.

Why you'll love this trip
Uncover the diverse wildlife and storied history of these remote islands, beginning in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires and ending in Ushuaia, the gateway to Tierra del Fuego National Park.
Enjoy the freedom to customise your trip with optional activities, perhaps choosing to explore the water on a kayaking expedition or join an onboard yoga class.
Whereas most polar expeditions of this kind have a crew-to-passenger ratio of ten, fifteen or twenty to one, Peregrine expeditions on the Ocean Endeavour have an expedition crew member for every 8 passengers for a greater personal touch
Our experienced leaders have made hundreds of polar voyages. Learn about the region’s history, geography and wildlife from experts in marine biology, glaciology and history
Rest assured you will leave only footprints behind. Your expedition is carbon offset, and we serve only sustainably-sourced seafood, avoid single-use plastics and use biodegradable and phosphate-free cleaning products on board
This is the perfect adventure for solo travellers, with single cabins at the same price as some twins
