After your week of exploration, you’ll say goodbye to your Expedition Team and disembark at King George Island.
There are few places in the world as evocative as Antarctica. As your ship approaches the White Continent, you may be overcome by feelings of excitement and awe. Much of Antarctica is indescribable and can only be fully appreciated through your own eyes.
Your charter flight from Punta Arenas to Antarctica will have you crossing the infamous Drake Passage in only a few hours.
Your adventure begins in Punta Arenas, Chile, the most populated city in Patagonia. If you arrive early, there are many museums, restaurants and shops to keep you busy for days.
You will arrive in Ushuaia in the morning, which allows you to continue your adventure on land or catch your flights home.
The journey back across the Drake Passage provides final opportunities to enjoy the crisp Antarctic air.
When the Antarctic Convergence is left in our wake, you will truly begin your Antarctic adventure. It is perhaps the first sight of land itself that is embraced as the true beginning of any Antarctic expedition.
With a population of more than 63,000 people, Ushuaia is the southernmost city in the world.
Embarkation will occur in the late afternoon, after which your vessel will sail down the historic Beagle Channel.
Prepare yourself for potentially rough water, but hope for a smooth sailing as the Drake is unpredictable and always changing.
