There are few sailing trips in the world more exciting than this, spend Christmas in Antarctica on board a traditional tall ship where you are the crew.
Voyage from Punta Arenas in Chile to the dramatic wilderness of the Antarctic continent. Spend 24 days on board and discover the wildlife, pristine landscape, and unique view of life on planet Earth that only Antarctica can offer.
Sail through the stunning channels and fjords of Patagonia with a chance at a stop at the mythical Cape Horn. Visit the lighthouse, take in the rough environment, and see the albatross monument before setting sights on the Drake Passage. From there, you must pass through the Antarctic Convergence Zone and then navigate the icebergs through the South Shetland Islands.
You will anchor in sheltered bays each night, while during the day, crew will take small groups ashore in dinghies. This gives you the opportunity to see glaciers, penguin rookeries, flora, fauna, and more up close. One of the highlights of this adventure will be your traveling companions – Orcas, Humpbacks, Killer Whales, and Minke will follow alongside the ship the further south you go.
We love this operator because of their extensive experience in the region. They’ve put together an itinerary of truly the most impressive spots that the White Continent has to offer. No sailing experience is necessary and the professional crew will teach you as much as you’d like to know about navigation, manoeuvres, weather observations, furling the sails, and more.
