Antarctica Air Cruises

Luxury Group Travel | 8 Days
  • An 8- or 10-day trip, flying to and from Antarctica
  • A comfortable Antarctica cruise without crossing the often-stormy Drake Passage
  • A comprehensive expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula
  • Zodiac excursions bring you close to wildlife and stunning ice-scapes
  • Add a private extensions to Chile or Argentina

If you are short on time or unsure about crossing the Drake Passage by ship (twice), you can reach the White Continent with a two-hour flight, then have four (or six) full days to explore this spectacular land. Savor sculpted rock and ice-scapes, visit huge penguin rookeries and watch pods of whales at play—a sampling of everything that the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands have to offer. And along the way, you can attend lectures about Antarctica and gain insight from onboard experts about its hardy wildlife and dazzling environment.

Trip Overview

The entire trip was fantastic. Antarctica was amazing. It is so beautiful in its starkness and vastness: the mountains, glaciers, icebergs, snow, penguins, and! All of the staff and crew were superb. I cannot thank you enough for all your superb suggestions and guidance. We would have had a very different experience without your expertise.
