By flying from Chile to the Falkland Islands and returning to Chile by air from Antarctica, this efficiently-planned expedition aims to give you eight days of off-ship exploration on MV Vavilov along the Antarctic Peninsula, visiting a large number of landing sites and cruising among the ice floes in Zodiac boats. The holiday begins with a visit to Patagonia's finest National Park, Torres del Paine. Stay at a lodge within easy reach of the park's walking trails and lakes.
The ship travels south from Port Stanley in her attempt ultimately to arrive at the Antarctic Circle. Returning north, visit several classic locations with staggering ice formations; some with hiking opportunities. Each day when a landing is possible you explore on shore by foot, observing wildlife colonies, visiting historically significant buildings and science bases. Complete the voyage at the South Shetland Islands, including Deception Island. Disembark at King George Island and fly back to South America in just two hours – avoiding sailing the frequently stormy waters of the Drake Passage.
