Classic Antarctica Air Cruise
Skip the rough waters of the Drake Passage and fly to Antarctica. This popular Classic Antarctica Air Cruise takes you to one of the most spectacular places on earth, the coldest, highest, windiest, driest, & remotest continent - Antarctica.
Flying from Punta Arenas in Chile to King George Island and return, the rest of your Antarctica trip is spent exploring from the comfort of our purpose built Antarctica cruise ships, The Ocean Nova, Magellan Explorer or the Hebridean Sky.
