ABOUT THE ITINERARY

Take the Classic Antarctic Air-Cruise and fly from Punta Arenas to join your ship in the South Shetland Islands. From there you cruise to the awe-inspiring beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula’s western coast with its monumental icebergs and stunning fjords.

Now you also have the option of flying in one direction, to or from Punta Arenas, and cruising in the other – either to or from Ushuaia. It’s your choice.

The Classic Antarctica Air-Cruise is available on the Magellan Explorer and Ocean Nova.

Magellan Explorer – Featuring a modern design and innovative technologies, this expedition vessel was custom-built for our Antarctic air-cruises. Max number of passengers per fly-cruise: 73

Ocean Nova – Sturdy and nimble, this ship was built to sail the ice-choked waters of Greenland and is ideally suited for Antarctic expeditions. Max number of passengers per fly-cruise: 67
