Magellan voyages

Starting in 2019 Bark EUROPA will celebrate the 500th anniversary of Ferdinand Magellan's adventures!

From Spain EUROPA will sail to South America, she will cross the Strait of Magellan and sail into the Pacific to visit some amazing destinations. The whole voyage will be published on the website in the new year. Stay tuned for more Pacific news! 

Falkland Islands / Las Malvinas

Imagine miles and miles of unspoiled breathtaking landscapes. Here, the main occupants of the land are the birds. Thousands of them. Penguins, Albatrosses, terns and many more. You hear their calls and cries everywhere in this otherwise silent wilderness. Explore the Falklands / Las Malvinas with Bark EUROPA. Spot Gentoo Penguins, Magellanic Penguins and a lone King Penguin with their chicks in their natural habitat, standing guard over their burrows. Spot the everpresent seabirds like the Kelp Geese, White Tufted Grebes, oystercatchers, petrels, and of course, the magnificent albatross. During zodiac expeditions to shore, you’ll be accompanied by many playful and curious Commerson's Dolphins and seals who like to show you the best way to go.

 

The permanent crew were just so professional, uncomplaining, friendly and forever helpful and our guides clearly have a passion for what they do and the ability to make every little mundane task feel exciting. Words really cannot express what it was like and, to quote from another's blog, if you really want to know you will have to go see for your self.

Antarctica season 2019/2020

Next year's Antarctica voyages are going to be extra special! After 500 years, we will follow the footsteps of the great explorer Ferdinand Magellan, sailing from Spain, via the Falklands and the Strait of Magellan into the Pacific. But before we start our great pacific adventure, we will return to Antarctica in 2019/20 from Punta Arenas and Ushuaia to visit the wildest and coldest continent on earth. Instead of steering for Cape Town, we will set sail to the turquoise seas and the Pacific islands.

If you are interested in an expedition to South Georgia, we will be sailing there again in the season after our Pacific adventure, Antarctica season 2020/2021. We will start that season with a South Georgia expedition starting at the Falklands and will of course close that season with our traditional Cape to Cape voyage.

It was a amazing voyage!!! The crew were wonderful in helping us with everything and the cook was absolutely amazing! I think that for a training ship she is handled very well and the organization was great. The captain did a superb job of wrangling the 40 plus landlubbers and keeping a ship shape ship! Thank you to everyone for all the love and effort that goes into this beautiful vessel.
