Introduction

With adventure at the forefront of our minds, we have teamed up with the luxury cruise providers of Silversea to create an exclusive expedition to the ends of the earth. Fast track to the last continent as you skip the Drake Passage and land in the heart of the action on King George Island. Let the adventure begin as you experience the wonderous landscapes and mighty wildlife on expert led expeditions in Antarctica, followed by the wilderness of Patagonia. Journeying to the depths of the world, this is off the grid like you’ve never seen it before.

Trip Overview

Your private driver will be waiting to transfer you to your luxury hotel in the city, where you will spend two nights. Enjoy some free time to explore the city, visiting its lively marketplaces, museums and landmarks.

Depart for Punta Arenas.

We’ve arranged an overnight stay in a stylish hotel in the heart of historic Punta Arenas. One of the southernmost cities in the world, you’re one step closer to the White Continent.

Admire the incredible wildlife that brave the conditions.

Come face to face with colonies of penguin, marvel at giant albatross flying above and listen out for orca coming up for air in the frozen water. You can’t help but smile as you witness friendly seals and baby penguins on the ice.

Cruise Antarctic Sound.

Journey down the narrow body of water, where the captivating silence is sometimes broken by a breaching whale. As you begin to reach the Antarctic Peninsula, sounds heighten as colonies of penguin sweep off the ice into the frozen water below.
