Overview & Highlights

Fly to the Antarctic Peninsula, avoiding the turbulent Drake Passage and enabling more time to be be spent around the Antarctic wildlife and natural wonders.

Skip the often stomach-churning waves of the Drake Passage by flying from southern Patagonia to join your expedition ship at King George Island, just north of the Antarctic Peninsula.

The Antarctic Peninsula is a slim finger of land and offshore islands reaching out from the main continental mass towards southern Argentina. In addition to prolific wildlife and extraordinary ice-carved landscapes, you will see evidence of the human impact – derelict whaling stations, and research outposts. This expedition provides an in-depth experience of the snow-drenched mountains and icebergs of these more accessible fringes. The cliffs and bays are brought to life by the chattering and wheeling of birdlife, sea-lions and penguins.

By flying straight to and from the White Continent, you not only avoid the need to cross one of the most notoriously choppy stretches of water in the world, but also save 4 days of your holiday. Transiting through Chile therefore gives you the perfect opportunity to use these days (and maybe more) exploring some of this country's many iconic regions, such as the hiking paradise of Patagonia, the desert moonscapes of the Atacama, the mysterious statues of Easter Island, or the relaxing hillsides of wine country. Simply let our team know your interests and we will find the right combination to suit you.
