The Antarctic Air-Cruise
Before Antarctica21 began to fly to Antarctica, travelers who wanted to reach the Antarctic Peninsula had only one option: a 4-day sail across and back again through the rough seas of the Drake Passage. But since 2003, our boutique-style wilderness adventures have offered a far more comfortable alternative.
Fly to Antarctica
One of the most complex parts about visiting Antarctica is the Drake Passage’s rough seas that separate the 7th continent from South America. However, our combination of flights and cruises allows passengers to take a flight over the Drake Passage. Our two-hour flight takes you from Punta Arenas, the international gateway to Chilean Patagonia, directly to Antarctica. Once there, you then board your expedition ship—no stormy crossing and no seasickness. Enjoy a quick, total immersion in your Antarctic adventure.
Antarctica is one of the most unexplored places on our planet. There is plenty of wildlife, incredible landscapes, and more that our combination of Antarctica flights and cruises allow you to see. Our small expedition vessels are more like private yachts, offering direct access to areas along the Antarctic shore that larger ships simply can’t reach. In addition, because we have fewer guests, you get on and off faster, so your time ashore is focused where it should be – savoring every moment of a travel experience unlike any other.
Antarctica21 offers several different Antarctica flights and cruises. Therefore, you can pick an adventure that sparks your interests the most. In fact, our most popular option is the Classic Antarctica Air-Cruise. Nevertheless, other options include the Polar Circle, South Georgia and Antarctica, and the Antarctica Express Air-Cruise.
