Antarctica Fly and Cruise

During an Antarctica excursion, we investigate every aspect of this untamed continent, from its beginnings to the present. Antarctica was in the subtropical region of the planet around 250 million years ago, covered in thick forests, and home to amphibians and reptiles. 

The ecosystem in Antarctica is the consequence of lengthy, intricate evolutionary processes in which many life forms have adapted to the harsh polar environment. As a result, it gave rise to a system with a small number of species that are totally dependent on one another and their habitat. Particularly, the Antarctic ecology is home to numerous penguins, whales, seals, and seabirds.

You might also witness a variety of seabird species on your Antarctica excursion, including albatrosses, blue-eyed stag, snowy sheathbills, and more. 

Nowadays, the Antarctic continent is without a doubt the planet’s most enigmatic location. Its topography is completely covered by a perpetual ice sheet. It has fascinated explorers, scientists, and travelers for centuries and is an ecological marvel as well.

You must pass through the always challenging and threatening Drake Passage to get there. In our Flight and Cruise programs, crafted for years, you can avoid passing through the drake passage and get to the calm waters of Antarctica. Now is the time when everyone can experience Antarctica with the greatest tranquility, and with the commodity and luxury of a king in one of the most remote destinations on our planet.

“Antarctica has this mythic weight. It resides in the collective unconscious of so many people, and it makes this huge impact, just like outer space. It’s like going to the moon.” ― Jon Krakauer
