Short Description

This 7 Day / 6 Night journey will take you to the most isolated and unspoiled continent on Earth – Antartica. You will fly over the Drake Passage before you land in Antartica and also get to see the Antarctic Peninsula by air on your approach to King George Island. Numerous excursions are possible to see wildlife, hike on glaciers and explore fields of icebergs. This is truly a once in a lifetime experience to the end of the Earth!
