A Journey to the ends of
the earth

This month I’ll take you to one of the most mystical and untouched regions in the world: Antarctica. Known for its captivating landscapes, challenging cruising grounds, and pure wildlife interactions this destination offers an extraordinary experience. Discover a solitude you never knew existed as you travel through this remote sanctuary on board your ice-strengthened yacht. Spend your days ashore exploring the southern-most continent before returning to a piping hot beverage prepared by your crew, as you check off this humbling bucket list item few travelers have the privilege of experiencing.

Begin your journey

Begin your journey by flying to Punta Arenas, one of Chile’s most southern cities. From there you can fly directly to King George Island on the most exclusive transcontinental flight. You’ll avoid crossing the Drake Passage by sea, an infamously tumultuous voyage. Before heading to the waterfront, take time to visit Russia’s Bellingshausen Station, home to the first Orthodox church in Antarctica. Embark on your journey where you will travel through the Antarctic Sound dubbed “Iceberg Alley.” Here you will find yourself surrounded by cathedral-like icebergs as tall as buildings, drifting through the ocean from the Weddell Sea. If you choose to cruise the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula, devote your time to searching for the elusive Emperor Penguins. During the winter months, the Emperor Penguins breed on Snow Hill Island. Consider yourself lucky if you are able to catch a glimpse of these playful animals during the summer months.
