Antarctica fly-cruises include a short 2-hour flight from Punta Arenas in Chile to King George Island in the South Shetlands and then an expedition cruise that navigates the icy waters of the Antarctic Peninsula. Naturalist guides help you discover the region, on land and by Zodiac, and provide fascinating onboard lectures. This option allows you to save time getting to Antarctica and is appealing to those with limited time or who are simply looking to avoid the unpredictability of the infamous Drake Passage. Some fly-cruises that include the Falklands and South Georgia also offer flights into or out of Stanley in the Falklands.
