Antarctic Cruise Itinerary

I think part of the appeal of Antarctica is experiencing some sort of power, the forces of the natural world. Jon Krakauer

Day 1 - Punta Arenas, Chile

You are welcomed by our local representatives at the airport, then transferred to your hotel to spend the night. After a briefing - an age old Antarctic expedition tradition - you enjoy a cocktail reception and welcome dinner featuring regional foods.

Day 2 - Antarctic cruise after the flight

The two hour flight across the Drake Passage ends on the Chilean Research Station Frei. Located next to the Chilean facility is Russia's Bellinghausen Station. A Zodiac transfers you to Hebridean Sky for embarkation and the first night of your Antarctic cruise.

Day 3 to 6 - Aboard ship

Hebridean Sky LibraryNo single day aboard ship is alike. You might attend a presentation by a naturalist. You could board a Zodiac for a cruise through an iceberg graveyard. Perhaps, you'll sip a glass of wine on the veranda of your cabin? When a pod of whales is sighted, you might watch from the deck or board a Zodiac. The weather, ice conditions and the time of year you choose to travel dictates what you experience and witness. Your days will be full of adventure, learning and laughter.
