Fly-Cruises to the Antarctic

Avoid the Drake Passage by flying

Antarctica is the last 'wild' continent, a vast undiscovered territory. A truly magnificent and pristine environment for you to explore, with majestic scenery and surprisingly abundant wildlife. Few destinations can compare in the spirit of adventure and sense of accomplishment one feels having visited here.
The Drake Passage between the Southern tip of Patagonia and Antarctica typically takes 2 days each way and the ocean is rough in these areas. We therefore have the ideal solution which is to board a flight to Antarctica and then to join an expedition cruise waiting there for you. This saves time and increases comfort.

When to go

December to February - this the the only time that weather permits this route

What to do

  • Marvel at the staggering scenery and observe the unique wildlife
  • From mid to late December the penguin chicks start to hatch, and in January you will catch the the feeding frenzy that ensues.
  • February to early March is the best time to spot whales, and there are generally a good number of fur seals to be seen too.
