|Chimu Adventures' Unique Offer To South Georgia And Pristine Antarctica|
Leading Antarctica specialists Chimu Adventures is offering a last minute special offer on their South Georgia and Pristine Antarctica departure on the 19th October 2013.
October is a fantastic time to visit South Georgia when elephant seals give birth to their pups on the beaches and the elephant seal bulls are at their most active defending their harems. There is also the chance to see huge gatherings of fluffy brown King Penguin chicks. The special voyage also visits the most important breading site for Wandering Albatross, Prion Island, which is closed to visitors from 20th November -7th January.
The cruise visits Elephant Island, particularly poignant considering the centenary of Shackleton's Endurance mission - history's greatest survival story, next year.
The ship continues to the Antarctic Peninsula as the very first boat of the season to arrive in Antarctica, seeing it at its most pristine.
The 17 day holiday starts in Santiago Chile and flies to the Falklands, where the cruise on board the MV Ushuaia begins and travels to South Georgia and the Antarctica Peninsula. The holiday costs from £5484 per person including an exclusive 20% Chimu Adventures discount. This price includes flights from the UK, domestic flights, accommodation, transfers, excursions and most meals.
