Atlantic Odyssey - Cruise
The Mid Atlantic islands of Tristan da Cunha, Saint Helena, and Gough are among the most remote inhabited places on Earth. This once-in-a-lifetime voyage takes you to several of the Mid Atlantic islands. Each of these islands is a paradise for birders and cetacean enthusiasts, promising a wealth of amazing sightings, from endemic birds to breathtaking mountainous and volcanic landscapes. Days at sea will be highlighted with amazing seabird life and migrating whales, along with unique lectures by expert expedition staff – and of course delicious dining!
Our odyssey sets off from Ushuaia, Argentina, from which we head towards the enigmatic South Georgia Islands. Here we visit wildlife colonies and of course expect to find huge numbers of King Penguins. After taking in this mindblowing spectacle, we navigate towards some of the world’s most isolated islands in the middle of the South Atlantic. The following days we visit Gough and Tristan da Cunha, places that only a very few people get to experience. Our voyage continues to exotic Saint Helena, where Napoleon Bonaparte was famously imprisoned.
