G Adventures has announced the launching of two new itineraries to the southernmost continent on board its expedition vessel M/S Expedition. Both itineraries are featured in G Adventures’ new 2013 Polar Expeditions brochure, which is available now.
One of the new itineraries explores the wildlife of the Falklands and South Georgia, where travelers this early in the season will be among the first to make landfall. The other itinerary heads to the Weddell Sea, retracing the journey made by Shackleton onboard Endurance and taking in views of tabular icebergs. Also featured in the new Polar Expeditions brochure is G Adventures’ program of Arctic expeditions running during the Arctic summer, ensuring lovers of polar bears are also catered to.
All expedition cruise fares include a number of zodiac landings, accommodation and meals onboard, and lectures and daily recaps.
Example itineraries from the new Polar Expeditions 2013 include: the Antarctic Peninsula and the Weddell Sea, which involves 15 days of traveling from Ushuaia, traversing the Drake Passage and exploring the Weddell Sea and South Shetland Island, departing December 7; the Falklands, South Georgia and the Antarctic Islands, involving 22 days of traveling from Buenos Aires “the Paris of the Americas” to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica before traversing the Drake Passage to Ushuaia, departing October 17; and the Realm of the Polar Bear, involving eight days of traveling from Longyearbyen to the Svalbard Archipelgo and Spitsbergen before returning to Longyearbyen, departing in June and July.
