This tour, embarking from the southern port of Madryn, Argentina, navigates through the charming islands of the south Atlantic before reaching Antarctic waters. Ideal for keen photographers, you can expect to capture more penguins, birds, seals, ice, and glacial landscapes than anywhere else in the world.
As we near the South Shetland Islands stretching towards the tip of the Antarctic Peninsula on day four, you’ll have the chance to glimpse your first colossal iceberg from one of the ship’s observation decks. Floating majestically upon the open ocean, these iridescent sculptures of ice have an almost surreal presence that will take your breath away. The icebergs melt as they are exposed to the warmth of the sun’s heat, taking on a variety of astonishing and fascinating shapes. If the weather permits, we may attempt our first landing in Antarctica by the late afternoon.
On day eleven, our journey will culminate at one of the most remote places on Earth – the Frei Base on King George Island, located at the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula in the South Shetland Islands. This is where we will bid our goodbyes to Antarctica, as we board our flight towards Punta Arenas, the capital city of Chile’s southernmost region. On arrival at the Punta Arenas airport, you will be transferred to our downtown hotel, where we will rest before convening for one last dinner as a team.
Please note that due to the location of King George Island, flight conditions may vary, adding to the drama of your journey! We apologise in advance if you experience any delays reaching Punta Arenas.
