Fly into Antarctica

By guest blogger Steve Newman

Here's a rare opportunity for an Antarctica fly-cruise - the boutique little Antarctic Dream will operate for some high season dates in 2011-12 with passengers flying across Drake's Passage once and navigating it the other way. Flights are to or from Punta Arenas in Chile while the sailing is between Ushuaia, the world's southern-most city, and the Antarctic peninsula.

Since 2002 and operating with the 80-passenger MV Antarctic Dream, a carefully-converted ex-Navy vessel, Antarctic Shipping S.A. has taken guests to the heart of this stunning region.

Their carefully planned itineraries offer an entirely different type of adventure cruise (you can even kayak if you like); one where you’ll be introduced to the Great White Continent and its seldom-seen wildlife whilst travelling on a luxury expedition cruise vessel guided by one of the most experienced teams sailing the region.
