21-Day Antarctica & South Georgia Expedition (Full Trip Overview)

After our first visit to Antarctica in 2018, we knew that we’d be back to explore more of the peninsula, and a goal to visit South Georgia was added to our bucket lists.

So, when the opportunity to join a late-season sailing that included Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands presented itself to us, we jumped at it!


This is the ultimate trip to Antarctica. A trinity that is at the top of many intrepid traveler’s bucket lists, especially if you like exploring remote places and viewing wildlife.

Why did we choose Aurora Expeditions?

They are very sustainability-forward, participate in several citizen science programs, and put an emphasis on providing jobs for women.

Our Ship: The Greg Mortimer

The ship features an ice-strengthened hull and an innovative Ulstein X-BOW design that enhances stability and passenger comfort by minimizing wave impact.

Snorkeling Program Option

Aurora Expeditions is the only company that offers a snorkeling program as an optional activity! Of course, we had to sign up.

Crossing the Drake Passage (again)

While many people fear the Drake Passage, I’ve come to love it because I know what’s waiting for me on the other side of it!

Livingston Island & Half Moon Island (South Shetland Islands)

These are two places in the South Shetland Islands that I’ve never visited, so it was interesting to see more of this island chain, despite not being able to land.
