Itinerary Overview

Leave the fast-paced, modern world behind

Set sail on an epic transatlantic voyage aboard the National Geographic Endurance. Venture from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the windswept splendors of the Falkland Islands, and from the wildlife havens of the South Atlantic to the far-flung volcanic isles of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Encounter thousands of king penguins in South Georgia; meet residents of the world’s most remote inhabited island, Tristan da Cunha; and explore the legacy of Napoléon Bonaparte on Saint Helena. Accompanied by a world-class team of experts and photographers, soak up the serenity of the open sea on a journey that recalls the Golden Age of Exploration.
