Stand Up Paddle Boarding

3. Ocean Endeavour

Whether your travel destination is an unforgettable epic journey through the wilderness of Antarctica, the Falkland Islands or South Georgia, the Ocean Endeavour will steer you toward numerous inspiring adventures, offering more Adventure Options than our other ships.

Fresh off a million-dollar makeover, the vessel features a unique focus on health and wellness. Along with enjoying the same great activities that our other expeditions offer, you'll find healthy meals, yoga and stretching classes, massage therapy, a sauna and a gym.

The Ocean Endeavour has you covered on exhilarating adventures as well. Get ready to go cross-country skiing, kayaking, mountaineering, stand-up paddleboarding and camping. And for certain expeditions, you can even capture some of your unforgettable moments on camera!

Whale Watching aboard the Hans Hansson

4. Hans Hansson

If you're all about maximizing your exploration time and having the richest experience possible, you'll love the Hans Hansson, a small, intimate ship that carries just 12 passengers, allowing you to bond with your crew and fellow passengers during your adventures.

Thanks to the vessel's small size, you will have the most adventure and on-land exploration time at landing sites in the Falklands and Antarctica, plus daily activities are flexible and customized to your interests. Your Hans Hansson trip will bring you to places larger vessels can't reach, since the ship goes everywhere a Zodiac can.
