Classic Antarctic Air-Cruise (8 days), fly from Punta Arenas, Chile

TRAVEL PROGRAM

Jumping over Cape Horn and the mythical waters of the Drake Passage. We take you to one of the most spectacular places on earth, the coldest, highest, windiest, driest, and remotest continent - Antarctica.

Day 1 : START OF THE AIR-CRUISE

Arrive in Punta Arenas, Chile, where you are welcomed by our staff and transferred to your hotel. In the afternoon, you attend a briefing that provides important information about your voyage and reviews the essential guidelines for Antarctic visitors.

Later, gather for a welcome dinner and meet your fellow adventurers while enjoying a typical regional menu.

SCHEDULED FLIGHT TO ANTARCTICA

Your Antarctic adventure begins with a two-hour night from Punta Arenas to King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. As you exit the airplane, the clear Antarctic air fills your lungs for the first time.

Explore the area surrounding Chile’s Frei Station and Russia’s Bellingshausen station, before boarding a Zodiac to embark your expedition vessel.

EXPLORING ANTARCTICA

Cruise between the South Shetland Islands and the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, sailing along ice-filled $ords and among spectacular icebergs, while enjoying the company of sea birds, penguins, seals and whales. Each day, disembark by Zodiac and explore the landscape together with expert polar guides. On board the ship, attend an engaging program of lectures and
presentations, and enjoy spectacular vistas from the glassenclosed lounge while sharing your daily adventures with fellow guests.

No journey is the same as flexibility is the key to success in Antarctica. The Expedition Team sets the voyage route to take advantage of the ever-changing opportunities provided by Nature, crafting a unique and extraordinary experience each time. While the exact itinerary changes with each expedition, you will explore several spots that offer the best possible overview of the varied Antarctic environment. Your voyage may include visits to sites such as Paulet Island, Hope Bay, Port Lockroy, Petermann Island, Paradise Bay, Deception Island, the Lemaire Channel, or many other magnificent places.

SCHEDULED RETURN FLIGHT FROM ANTARCTICA

Return to King George Island and bid farewell to Antarctica before boarding the light back to Punta Arenas. Upon arrival, transfer to your hotel for the night. (Note: Meals in Punta Arenas are at your leisure and not included in the program).

END OF THE AIR-CRUISE
