Heroic Antarctic Air-Cruise
7 Days / 6 Nights
1 - Arrival at the city of Punta Arenas where you will be met by ANTARCTICA XXI staff, to be transferred to the hotel. During the afternoon, you will receive instructions concerning the guidelines that should be followed in Antarctica and the procedures for Zodiac boat embarkation and disembarkation. Later, you will be invited to gather for a welcome dinner together with your expedition mates and you will have the chance to enjoy a typical Magellan menu.
PLEASE NOTE: Passengers should be in Punta Arenas at 15:00 hours, at the latest.
Day 2 - Our Antarctic adventure will begin with the flight from Punta Arenas to King George Island (South Shetland Islands). The flight takes a little less than two hours. Upon arrival, we will be able to tour around the area where the Frei Chilean Base and the Bellingshausen Russian Base are located. We will gather at the beach on Fildes Bay for embarkation by Zodiac boats on board our expedition vessel.
Day 3 to 6 - While cruising between the South Shetland Islands and the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, sailing along ice-filled fjords and between spectacular icebergs, we will enjoy the company of sea birds, penguins, seals and whales. Our journey will include visits to some of the most renowned spots in the history of Antarctic explorations such as: Paulet Island, Hope Bay, Brown Bluff and Gourdin Island amongst others. Our target will be the crossing of the famous Antarctic Sound towards the Weddell Sea sailing though huge tabular icebergs. Our adventure will be very active, with several daily landings and cruises in Zodiac boats, lectures and a very enjoyable time on board.
Day 7 - Return to King George Island where we will disembark, in Zodiac boats, at the Frei Chilean Base, and head to the aerodrome to take the flight back to Punta Arenas. The program ends upon arrival at the Airport in Punta Arenas. Transfer to the city will be available for passengers staying overnight in Punta Arenas.
