This adventure expedition offers you the ideal introduction to the great White Continent. Departing from and finishing in the port of Punta Arenas, Chile, this program includes the most exciting sites of Patagonia, Cape Horn, South Shetland Islands, and the Antarctic Peninsula. The program emphasizes wildlife viewing, possible visits to scientific bases, and the breathtaking scenery of narrow waterways, glaciers, icebergs and rugged mountains. No two voyages are exactly the same so the itinerary outlined here is for your guidance only. The Captain and expedition leader will assess daily conditions and take full advantage of every opportunity to make landings with our zodiacs, disposing of the nearly continuous daylight to maximize time ashore. There is an over flight included in this program. Enjoy this once on a lifetime journey!
