ROALD AMUNDSEN · Polar Explorer
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
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.
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.
Comfort: Avoid storms
in the Drake Passage
Speed: Get to Antarctica quickly and save time
Size: Enjoy a small-ship, yacht-like experience
