Punta Arenas, Antarctic Peninsula & South Shetland Islands
Cruise, Nature & Wildlife
Join the world’s most illustrious explorers as you sojourn into the untouched Seventh Continent. Sail across maze of fjords flanked by huge glaciers on a zodiac, hike through pristine natural beauties and befriend colonies of penguins, seals, whales and seabirds.
In this program, we have handpicked the best expedition ships for discerning travellers looking for the right blend of unique excursions, insightful lectures hosted by expert naturalists, and modern comfort.
Our journey begins at Punta Arenas in Chile. Our representative will meet you for pre-cruise briefing and transfer you to your hotel.
Board a charter flight to King George Island, thereby reducing the Drake Passage crossing from 2 days into 2 hours, per way. Board your ship and spend time on deck looking for wildlife or attend our expert-hosted presentations on history, wildlife and glaciology to prepare you as we gradually approach the Ice Continent.
Sail along the untamed landscape of snow-blanketed fjords, cathedral-sized icebergs and calving glaciers. Depending on weather condition, every day is different and bring new discoveries into your adventure. Partake in zodiac excursions across remote bays in the company of curious penguins, whales, orcas, seals or seabirds one day, then hike through the vast wilderness of spongy tundra, crusty snow or sandy beach on another day.
Depending on your selected sailing dates and ships, there may be optional activities such as sea kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, snowshoeing and overnight camping at supplement cost, which we recommend to book in advance as they are highly popular. Please enquire to discuss the details.
[For Silver Explorer, the itinerary includes one additional day in the Antarctic Peninsula.]
Having exchanged stories of a lifetime with fellow travellers over a glass of champagne, you will disembark at King George Island and board a charter flight back to Punta Arenas to rest.
After breakfast, you will catch your flight home or continue for your onward journey. We recommend extension to Torres Del Paine, Atacama and Santiago to round up your bucket list.
