About Antarctica21

Antarctica21 organizes air cruise expeditions to Antarctica. The company was founded in 2003 by adventurers who believed there was a better way to get to Antarctica. Before Antarctica21, travelers who wanted to reach the Antarctic Peninsula had only one option: a 2-day sail through the notoriously rough seas of the Drake Passage. However, since 2003, the company’s wilderness adventures have offered a more comfortable alternative. A two-hour flight takes guests from Punta Arenas, Chile’s gateway to Patagonia, straight to Antarctica, where they then board their expedition vessel. No stormy crossing. No seasickness. Just a quick and total immersion in the Antarctic adventure. The company operates small expedition vessels with a maximum of 73 guests, providing flexibility and access that larger vessels simply cannot match. Passengers hop on and off the ship efficiently, so their time ashore is focused where it should be: savoring every moment of a travel experience like no other. For more information, visit
