Visit the South Shetland Islands and the channels of the Antarctic Peninsula, but skip the Drake Passage crossing in one direction by flying instead.
Fly and cruise - cross the Drake Passage on the ship, cruise the Antartica Peninsula and return on a flight from King George Island to Punta Arenas. This itinerary allows the intrepid exporer plenty of time to live and breath the wonders of this most pristine of wilderness areas.
What makes this trip responsible?
We take extremely seriously our responsibility to minimise our impact on these pristine areas. Exodus is an Associate Member of the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) and has agreed to abide by one of the tourism world's most conscientious codes of conduct. Our ship operators in Spitsbergen are also members of the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO), which covers operations in Spitsbergen.
However, perhaps the single most important thing any polar travel company can do, is educate their clients to travel sensitively and compassionately. Our expedition team on each ship takes this part of their role very seriously, and looks forward to explaining how everyone can play their part.
