Antarctica XXI

6 Days/ 5 Nights

Package Overview

The Antarctica Express Air-Cruise offers an introductory trip to Cape Horn and Antarctica.

It combines a sailing across the Drake Passage, a very short visit to Antarctica, and a flight over the Drake Passage.

This quick expedition offers travelers the opportunity to check Antarctica off their bucket list while making a small financial and time investment.

The trip can easily be combined with a visit to Patagonia for a fuller travel experience in southern latitudes. It can also be used to connect Ushuaia and Punta Arenas in itineraries that visit both the Argentinean and Chilean sides of Patagonia.
