Our Antarctic adventure will begin with the flight from Punta Arenas to King George Island
(South Shetland Islands). The flight takes a little less than two hours. Upon arrival, we will

Russian Base are located. We will gather at the beach on Fildes Bay for embarkation by
Zodiac boats on board our expedition vessel.

From day 3 to day 8. While cruising between the South Shetland Islands and the western coast of the Antarctic
Peninsula, sailing along ice-filled fjords and between spectacular icebergs, we will enjoy
the company of sea birds, penguins, seals and whales. Our journey southwards will
include visits to some of the most magnificent spots in the white continent, such as:
Cierva Cove, Port Lockroy, Petermann Island, Paradise Bay, Lemaire Channel, Prospect
and Fish Islands amongst others. Depending on weather and ice conditions, we will attempt to cross the Polar Circle at latitude 66° 33’ South and enjoy a
champagne to celebrate this extraordinary occasion. Our adventure will be very active,
with several daily landings and cruises in Zodiac boats, lectures and a very enjoyable time
on board.

Return to King George Island where we will disembark, in Zodiac boats, at the Frei Chilean
