The Drake passage is a famously rough crossing which can act as a barrier for those who want to cruise around Antarctica.
But with this amazing fly-cruise Antarctic trip, you fly over the notoriously rough seas of Cape Horn and Drake Passage, straight to Antarctica.
Here, the Antarctica XXI programme will take you to one of the most remote places on earth, the coldest, highest, windiest, driest, and most inhospitable continent – Antarctica.
The Antarctic Continent keeps many hidden surprises for those who visit it. This fascinating territory contains more than 90% of the earth's land ice, which transforms it into the largest sweet water reserve on earth.
Antarctica has remained hidden from man during the longest period of time and its first visitors arrived at these virgin frozen lands only two hundred years ago.
Its matchless beauty contrasts with extreme climatic conditions, all of which make it an exotic destination, truly hypnotizing for the few that reach this remote corner.
Among the main species that make up marine Antarctic fauna are Whales, Elephant Seals, Weddell Seals, Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo Penguins, as well as a variety of birds, such as Albatrosses, Petrels and Snowy Sheathbills.
There are 5, 8 and 9 day trips available - contact us for advice, or check our Antarctica cruises for longer options.
