Explore seldom-seen isles and rich cultural traditions

Set sail on an epic transatlantic voyage aboard  National Geographic Explorer.  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.

  • Enjoy a rich program of lectures by an expert team of naturalists, historians, and photographers; and take advantage of the National Geographic Explorer’s many amenities, from wellness programs and spa treatments to gourmet dining options and wine tastings.

  • Go snorkeling in sparkling waters along Ascension Island, where one of the planet’s largest colonies of endangered green sea turtles lay their eggs.

  • See rockhopper penguins and albatrosses on remote Tristan da Cunha Island in the South Atlantic and meet some of the 250 hardy residents who live there.

  • Visit the vast king penguins colonies on South Georgia, tens of thousands on a single beach.

Atlantic Isles, New and Noteworthy

Day By Day

An expedition that runs the length of an entire ocean has to be a mind-stretching experience. Take a unique trek up the spine of the Atlantic Ocean, traversing nearly 90 degrees of latitude and 9,000 nautical miles. The fascinating islands that lie across it are some of the remotest in the world: South Georgia and the Falklands, Tristan da Cunha, St. Helena, Ascension Islands, plus Cape Verde, the Canaries and Madeira. And the different climates you’ll encounter, the balmy breezes and polar winds, volcanic mountainsides and lush forests, all will present you with a cornucopia of beauty and wonder—from the comfort of the National Geographic Explorer.
