Antarctica Express Fly Cruise | 8 days | Go Beyond Group Tour | from £11,900pp

  • Includes a Cruise

A two-hour charter flight from Punta Arenas in Chile brings you to King George Island, the gateway to the White Continent and the beginning of an unforgettable voyage. Spend a week discovering the glories of the Antarctic Peninsula's icy fjords, serene icebergs and unparalleled wildlife, from killer whales and leopard seals to the iconic Adélie, chinstrap and gentoo penguins.

Crossing the Drake Passage, by ship or by air, is a rite of passage for all adventurers to the Antarctic voyages. With a short two-hour flight from Punta Arenas to the edge of Antarctica, the Antarctic Express is an ideal itinerary for adventurers with less time, or who simply prefer to fly the Drake.

For those wishing to experience the sea crossing, an alternative voyage (Antarctic Explorer) operates a very similar itinerary, with embarkation in Ushuaia.

'Antarctica Express: Fly-Cruise' is also known as 'Antarctica Express: Fly the Drake'

Group Tour includes:

  • pre and post-cruise accommodation (Punta Arenas)
  • twin or double cabin
  • all meals
  • expedition leaders and daily tours
  • visa fees for UK passport holders, if required
  • all domestic transportation, departure taxes and current fuel surcharges
