Punta Arenas

Welcome to Punta Arenas, Chile, the most populated city in Patagonia. In the early afternoon, meet your leader and fellow explorers at the joining point hotel. Enjoy your first meal together and be briefed on the necessary preparations for embarkation tomorrow. If you arrive in Punta Arenas early, there are plenty of things to see and do. For a poignant look into the city’s history, perhaps visit the Cementerio Municipal to see the lavish tombs of wool barons and the modest graves of immigrants and explorers.

King George Island – Embarkation Day

Today, cross the famous Drake Passage on a 3-hour charter flight from Punta Arenas to Antarctica. Get your first glimpse of the dramatic Antarctic landscape as your plane descends for landing on King George Island. As the largest island in the South Shetlands, King George is home to research stations belonging to Argentina, China, Russia, South Korea, Holland and the USA, among others. On landing, spend some time exploring before being transferred by Zodiac to the ship. Meet the rest of your shipmates and set sail for the Antarctic Peninsula.

South Shetland Islands – Antarctic Peninsula

Enter an otherworldly landscape and spend three days exploring the Great White Continent. Each day, if the weather allows, you’ll make two excursions that immerse you in this incredible environment. You might take a Zodiac cruise in search of whales and icebergs around Pleneau Island one day, then hike to a penguin rookery the next. Your expedition team will help point out penguins, seals, seabirds and whales throughout the journey. You’ll also learn about the history, geology and wildlife of the region through in-depth presentations on board.

The Antarctic Circle

Few people can say they’ve crossed the Antarctic Circle, and today you’ll become one of them! Toast to your adventure with a glass of champagne, while paying homage to the first explorers to journey this far south. This is now deep Antarctica, home to Weddell seals, spectacular ice formations and the midnight sun. This region is also home to the densest concentration of wildlife in Antarctica. While not a typical landing, the crossing of the Antarctic Circle is a moment to remember. The event will usually happen while at sea, so be sure to head up to the bridge and snap your photo of the GPS reading 66° 33’ S.

Antarctic Peninsula

Travel north along the Antarctic Peninsula, embarking on more Zodiac excursions and shore landings daily in search of wildlife and polar wonders.

King George Island – Disembarkation Day – Punta Arenas

Today, say goodbye to the expedition team and your crew and disembark the ship at King George Island for the 3-hour flight across the Drake Passage to Punta Arenas. You will be transferred from the airport to the hotel for your night of post-expedition accommodation.

Punta Arenas

There are no activities planned for today and your trip comes to an end after breakfast.
