This is an excellent way to experience Antarctica if you’re short on time or would much rather avoid the requisite sea crossing of the Drake Passage. Highlights include flying over the Drake passage (from Punta Arenas, Chile to King George Island in Antarctica), thus maximizing your time on board sailing the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula, as well as having access to all the same great landing sites + adventure activities as the standard Antarctic Classic itinerary.
Day 1 - Punta Arenas, Chile
Day 2 - Scheduled flight to Antarctica
Days 3 to 6 - Exploring Antarctica and the South Shetland Islands
Day 7 - Scheduled flight from Antarctica
Day 8 - Depart Punta Arenas
REAL ADVENTURES. REAL PEOPLE
David makes every stop on the trip a highlight
I had a fantastic trip to Svalbard with David as a guide. His great experience and burning interest in the Arctic and Antarctica really shines through. He has an extensive knowledge of all parts of the wildlife but is at the same time also incredibly competent as a polar historian, making every stop on the trip a highlight.
We’re a different kind of agency. We work on the ships, with the teams, and are currently active in the polar regions. Our insider advice is truly that - straight from the field - and it's updated in real time if things change.
