ANTARCTICA FLIGHTS

Antarctica is one of the only places on earth that is still pristine, it is therefore, why it has become an important reserve for the biosphere. Its unique beauty contrasted with its extreme weather conditions, make it an exotic and enchanting destination for all those privileged travelers who are planning a visit to the end of the world and to this unique, memorable destination. At our Antarctica flights you will fly over the Magellan Strait, Tierra del Fuego Island, Darwin Mountain Range, the mythical Cape Horn and the rough Drake Passage to finally arrive at King George Island.

 

PREVIOUS DAY OF THE PROGRAM

Upon arrival in the city of Punta Arenas, we will include 04 consecutive nights of accommodation based on a double room. Passengers traveling alone will be considered in a single room.

In your e-mail you will receive the instructions to reach our offices and be part of the Antarctic briefing. Here you will meet the other passengers on the tour and be greeted by our host who will invite you to share a welcome cocktail.

Your arrival in Punta Arenas must be no later than 5:00 p.m. to be able to participate in the Antarctic briefing. Passengers who are not present at this meeting may not participa- te in the contracted tour. It is mandatory.

The realization of each program and its activities are subject to weather conditions and it will be the exclusive decision of the airway if they can be carried out or not.

DESCRIPTION OF FULL DAY PROGRAM

A transfer will pick you up at the hotel to transport you to the Punta Arenas airport and board the flight to King George Island.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by our expert guide in the area who will take you to visit some of the most characteristic places such as Villas Las Estrellas (first site inhabi- ted by civilians), Orthodox Church in Russian Base Bellingshausen, Fildes Bay where you will sail on a zodiac type boat to Ardley Island to visit penguin colonies (Adelie, Chinstrap and Papua), and other visits in the area. After 5 hours of tour (subject to weather conditions) you will take the return flight to Punta Arenas where a transfer will take you back to the hotel.

The Full day program has a maximum duration of 5 hours (subject to weather conditions) on King George Island.

DESCRIPTION OF OVERNIGHT PROGRAM

After the activities of the full day, passengers will be taken to an antarctic shelter to the “Elefanteras” (sea elephant colony), a visit to the Chinese station “Great Wall” and depending on the weather conditions it is also possible to visit other tourist attractions before returning to Punta Arenas.

The Overnight program includes the same activities as a full day plus over- night in an Antarctic refuge, in addition to other visits. This activity will take place only if the weather conditions are suitable and safe for the operation.

All programs’ visits are made by foot.

The whole program (Full day and Overnight) including visits, walks and navigations is subject to weather conditions and may change the order of the tour/activities and the total hours of stay.
