Setting sail from Puerto Williams
Puerto Williams has the feel of a true frontier town, situated on windswept Navarino Island facing out across the Beagle Channel. It's home to a fishing port and an important Chilean naval base, and is often described as 'the world's southernmost city', although it's debatable whether it's really a city. The surrounding mountains offer a spectacular backdrop for hiking and kayaking, while to the south lies the infamous Drake Passage and, beyond that, the frozen continent of Antarctica.
South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands: South Georgia
Remote and virtually uninhabited, the island of South Georgia is a beautiful and fascinating place. The landscape of jagged, snowy peaks and dramatic fjords is home to an abundance of penguins and seals, as well as ghostly abandoned whaling stations and the grave of Sir Ernest Shackleton.
Tristan da Cunha: Tristan da Cunha
There is remote, and then there is Tristan da Cunha. This little volcanic rock in the South Atlantic supports a population of less than 300 people, and is an astonishing 1,200 miles from St Helena, the nearest inhabited island. There is no airport, so arriving by ship really is the only way to get here.
Tristan da Cunha: Nightingale Island
Remote, volcanic and uninhabited by humans, Nightingale Island is part of the Tristan da Cunha archipelago. The island is known for its spectacular birdlife, home to over a million seabirds, including rockhopper penguins, Atlantic yellow-nosed albatross and the rare Nightingale bunting.
Tristan da Cunha: Gough Island
The waters around remote, weather-beaten Gough Island are rich feeding grounds for sea birds, and the island sustains large populations of Antarctic terns, brown noddies, Atlantic petrels, spectacled petrels and several different species of albatross. This is also one of the best places to see the rare northern rockhopper penguin.
Arriving in Cape Town
This magical multicultural city is the perfect jumping off point to explore Southern Africa, but do make sure you linger a few days to enjoy the buzz of a city where Africa meets a European-style cosmopolitan atmosphere, creating a vibrant melting pot of cultures and religions. With flat-topped Table Mountain soaring above the city, beautiful natural landscapes, and gardens within the city, you never feel far from nature here. Enjoy the waterfront, museums and elegant architecture, then take the time to venture further afield - there is so much within easy reach.
Combine time in Cape Town with trips outside the city. We will help you plan ahead to make the most of your visit, so our tip is simply to call us to make the most of it.
