Classic Antarctica Air-Cruise – 7 nights
This luxury cruise will fly you over the often stormy Drake Passage from Punta Arenas and onto your small luxury cruise. This 7 night itinerary takes in the South Shetland Islands and western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula – sailing through ice filled fjords with dramatic icebergs, watching birds, seals, whales and penguins. There is a program of lectures for those interested in specialist topics, and some of the world’s leading experts on the area will be on board with you. The exact routing is planned by the team depending on the ever changing natural occurrences and as such there is flexibility and a unique-ness to every trip.
