Antarctic Express: Cruise South, Fly North Overview
- 2012-11-01 - 2014-03-31
Head to Antarctica on an adventure to explore the frozen continent
Cast adrift into the world’s great white basement, a place with no reverse cycle and certainly no ‘defrost’ option. But don’t let the thought of living in a giant Esky deter you, this is truly one of the world’s greatest adventures. From Ushuaia, get a new perspective on the phrase ‘going South’ by crossing the legendary Drake Passage and aiming those eyes toward the sky to spot soaring birdlife. Experience the rush of spotting the world’s most remote continent, and set foot on the icy terrain that has inspired explorers for centuries. For as long as you live, you’ll never forget the pure white bliss of Antarctica.
Antarctic Express: Cruise South, Fly North SummaryAdd to Shortlist
A picturesque town at the end of the world, Ushuaia is the launching pad for many Antarctica trips and is also excellent for hiking and mountain-based activities.
The beautiful Beagle Channel, which links Ushuaia with the Drake Passage, is particularly rich with birdlife - penguins, cormorants, petrels and albatross can all be seen here.
The infamous Drake Passage is a fascinating place where the raw power of nature is always on display - seabirds circle overhead and whales happily cruise these waters.
The coldest, windiest, driest and iciest continent, Antarctica is a land of spectacular scenery, epic adventure and some of the world's most iconic wildlife.
The largest of the South Shetlands, King George Island is home to several permanent research bases, an airport and the Antarctic's only hotel.
Once a Chilean penal colony, Punta Arenas is now a vibrant port city with plenty of museums, historic sites and shops to keep you entertained.
