23rd November 2021 – 12 December 2021November 23, 2003 was the first time ever that a total solar eclipse had been witnessed in this region and the path of the Moon’s umbral shadow quickly passed over a section of the white continent. Those lucky enough to witness it might have thought this was a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience, however in the early hours of December 4, 2021 a second eclipse will take place as we sail to South Georgia and towards the Antarctic Peninsula on-board the Akademik Ioffe. Prior to the eclipse event we explore the wildlife-rich Falkland Islands and remote South Georgia before reaching Antarctica
