Fly the Drake
8 Days - Ocean Albatros
Encounter the 7th continent in comfort! Substituting the 2-day Drake passing, with a 2 hour flight, we can experience the incredible wildlife, stunning mountain scenery and gigantic icebergs in record time and comfort.
Departing from Punta Arenas in Chile, fly across the mighty Drake Passage and land at King George Island. From here you embark the ship and navigate around the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. Throughout the following days you will be making Zodiac landings at penguin rookeries and fascinating lookouts. Continuing southward, deep into the inlets of Antarctica, pass the famous Gerlache Strait, where 3000-ft ice cliffs rise straight out of the still water. Experiencing so much of the remote continent in comfort, and in so few days, is only possible in “Fly the Drake”.
