Ocean Nova - Antarctica air-cruise tours

Discover Antarctica

Latin America Reservation Center, Inc. (LARC) in association with Antarctica21 is proud to bring you . . . Antarctica!

Sail along ice-filled fjords and among spectacular icebergs, while enjoying the company of seabirds, penguins, seals and whales.  Visit the South Shetland Islands and the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula, disembarking by Zodiac each day.  In small groups, hike to extraordinary sites and take part in exploratory Zodiac excursions to otherwise inaccessible areas.  Expert polar guides share their passion for Antarctica through an engaging program of illustrated presentations, and lead you ashore to interpret the wildlife, the history and the many wonders of the Antarctic environment...


Antarctica is a remote, magical place that will greet you with its awe-inspiring beauty.  See peaceful bays dotted with colossal icebergs; cruise along deep fjords and see massive glaciers; be amazed by sharp snowy peaks that jut out of the sea.

Reflection of Antarctic landscape


Set foot on the seventh continent and add a new destination to your travel list.  You will bring home indelible memories, while tales of your adventurous journey will arouse the curiosity and admiration of your friends and family.

Tourist group in Antarctica


Adventure awaits in Antarctica.   Cruise at sea level with our Zodiac boats and feel the spray of seawater on your cheeks.  Follow in the footsteps of early explorers as you hike on Antarctic soil.  Join our optional sea kayaking and hiking & snowshoeing programs.



In the austral summer, large numbers of penguins, whales, seals, and seabirds congregate along the Antarctic Peninsula to feed and reproduce.  Unconcerned by your presence, these animals will provide endless inspiration for your photographs.


“We must always remember with gratitude and admiration the first sailors who steered their vessels through storms and mists, and increased our knowledge of the lands of ice in the South.”

ROALD AMUNDSEN · Polar Explorer

Antarctic Air-Cruise Model

Fly over Cape Horn and the Drake Passage to reach Antarctica quickly and in comfort.  There was a time when adventure travelers who wanted to reach the Antarctic Peninsula had only one option: to sail across the tempestuous Drake Passage. Now Antarctica21 gives you a more comfortable alternative.

Fly the Drake Passage

A two-hour flight takes you from Punta Arenas, in the Chilean Patagonia, directly to Antarctica where you board your expedition ship.  You thereby avoid the stormy seas of the Drake Passage – and the potential seasickness - and experience only the best Antarctica has to offer.

Aircraft on approach to land
Cruise Antarctica

Antarctica21 offers a boutique-style wilderness adventure, not a cruise.  Feeling more like private yachts than cruise ships, our small expedition vessels give you privileged access to Antarctica, taking you where larger ships cannot. With a smaller number of passengers, disembarkation is fast and efficient so you spend time exploring, not waiting.
