Antarctic Express – Crossing the Circle

Embark on an extraordinary Antarctic adventure with the Antarctic Express: Crossing the Circle voyage, a unique and exhilarating experience that allows you to check off a remarkable travel milestone – crossing the Antarctic Circle. This specially crafted expedition combines the excitement of the Crossing the Circle: Southern Expedition itinerary with the convenience of a direct round-trip flight from Chile to your polar-ready ship, maximizing your time for exploration and minimizing the ocean transit.

Your journey begins with a direct charter flight from Chile to Antarctica, saving you the two-day crossing of the legendary Drake Passage. By flying over the passage, you’ll not only save time but also enjoy aerial views of the vast Southern Ocean and the icy landscapes below. Upon arrival at King George Island in the South Shetland Islands, you’ll get your first glimpse of the awe-inspiring Antarctic landscapes before transferring to your expedition ship.

From there, your adventure continues as you set sail for the Antarctic Peninsula, where you’ll explore the wonders of this pristine and otherworldly region. You’ll have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, including thrilling Zodiac cruises, where you’ll navigate through channels filled with magnificent icebergs, and you may even choose to go sea kayaking, providing you with a unique perspective on this frozen wonderland.

The highlight of this extraordinary expedition is reaching the Antarctic Circle at 66⁰33´ south. Crossing this famed latitude is a significant achievement, as few travelers venture this far south. You’ll have the chance to toast to the early explorers who first ventured into this remote and untouched territory, and you can take pride in knowing that you’ve visited a part of the world that few people have experienced.

Throughout your voyage, you’ll be accompanied by an experienced Expedition Team, who will provide valuable insights into the region’s geology, wildlife, and history, enriching your understanding of this unique environment. From the playful antics of penguins to the majesty of humpback whales, the Antarctic Peninsula is teeming with wildlife, and your Expedition Team will ensure you have the best opportunities to observe and appreciate these incredible creatures in their natural habitat.

As you venture further south along the western Antarctic Peninsula, you’ll have ample time to immerse yourself in the beauty of this remote wilderness, capturing unforgettable memories and photographs along the way. Every day will bring new discoveries, new encounters, and a profound appreciation for the delicate balance of life in this pristine environment.

By choosing the Antarctic Express: Crossing the Circle, you’ll embark on an extraordinary polar adventure that combines the thrill of reaching the Antarctic Circle with the convenience of flying over the Drake Passage. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the wonders of Antarctica, ticking off multiple achievements from your bucket list and creating memories that will stay with you forever.
