VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

Fly-Cruise Antarctica

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.

REAL ADVENTURES. REAL PEOPLE

She really took care of me and even arranged to have a bottle of wine appear in my room for my birthday!

When I first began talking to Heather about going to Antarctica I knew right away that I’d picked the perfect person to talk to and put my trust in. Having worked on some of the ships herself, her knowledge of the different companies, and their ships, was first rate which made my choices so much easier.

Knowing that she had been to Antarctica multiple times as part of the crew, I was able to ask her the many questions that I had and know that I could fully trust her answers. She really took care of me and even arranged to have a bottle of wine appear in my room for my birthday! I’d wholeheartedly recommend talking to Heather, and the team at Twin Tracks, if Antarctica is your dream trip.
