Adventure Options

Antarctica at its most accessible! Save time (and one Drake Passage crossing) on our unique 'Fly/Cruise' voyage to the icy continent’s picturesque west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Mountains disgorging glaciers to the sea; humpback and minke whales feasting on krill; lively penguin colonies watched by hungry leopard seals – it all awaits you.

Highlights
• Skip one Drake Passage crossing
• Observe the drama of penguins raising chicks
• Tour scientific research stations and historic huts
• Paddle kayaks among breathtaking 'iceberg gardens'
• Enjoy humpback mothers and calves feeding
• Experience polar diving and snorkeling with expert guides

Day 1 — Punta Arenas, Chile

Arrive in Punta Arenas and transfer to your downtown hotel. The rest of the afternoon is at leisure to explore this vibrant, historic seaport on the Strait of Magellan.

Day 2 — Flight to King George Island - Embarkation

Enjoy scenic flight to King George Island, Antarctica, and transfer by Zodiac to your expedition ship, the Greg Mortimer.

Days 3 to 8 — Antarctic Peninsula

The Antarctic Peninsula's western flanks offer long days and relatively ice-free waters. We visit historic huts and Zodiac cruise through narrow straits and majestic icebergs, and if we're lucky, whale watch from the bow of the ship. A few landing points we hope to visit include Half Moon Bay, Lemaire Channel, Hydrurga Rocks and more.

Days 9 & 10 — Drake Passage

Relax and reminisce as we cross the Drake Passage, bound for South America. Our expedition team recap all the incredible things we've witnessed, or perhaps you'll find a quiet moment place to review the hundreds of photos taken.

Day 11 — Ushuaia, Argentina

We slip up the Beagle Channel and pull into Ushuaia, where you'll say goodbye to new friends and begin any onward travel.
