A trip to Antarctica is a once in a lifetime experience and an adventure at the top of many traveller bucket lists.
Due to its remote location, and therefore difficult accessibility, a cruise to Antarctica can prove a time consuming journey – especially once you include the unavoidable 2 day Drake Passage crossing. However, now it is possible to embark on a spectacular ‘fly and cruise’ trip to the white continent, saving precious time for the busy travel addict.
Leaving from the small airport at Punta Arenas, intrepid explorers can now skip the 2 day journey by sea and instead take a direct flight to the Antarctic Peninsula. Once upon the ice, you will be transferred to the port where you will board your ship and embark on the Antarctic Peninsula cruise. After a few days at sea witnessing the incredible scenery and wildlife, you will return to the port, transfer to the airport and take the short flight back to the mainland.
All this can be achieved in as little a 7 days. Currently there are only a few ships which operate this unique ‘fly and cruise’ option, below you will find an overview of these cruise ships and their dates. For more information on the ships and itineraries, please contact us.
