National Geographic Expeditions offers travelers a chance to visit exotic locations, to experience unique adventures throughout the world.

National Geographic Expeditions has just introduced two new Antarctica itineraries that travelers can book for later this year.

New National Geographic Expeditions Antarctica Itineraries

Two exciting new Antarctica itineraries are now available, giving travelers the chance to fly, or sail and fly, on an expedition to the continent. The two new itineraries include both an eight-day and ten-day expedition.

  • Antarctica Direct: Fly the Drake Passage: An eight-day itinerary that includes a round-trip flight across the Drake Passage that will land at and depart from the Chilean Base of Presidente Frey on King George Island. The Chilean Base is an active research station that is home to diverse wildlife. Once guests arrive, they will board the National Geographic Explorer ship for the duration of the trip. To return, the trip will include a two-hour flight back to Puerto Natales, Chile.
  • Antarctica Direct: Sail and Fly the Drake PassageA ten-day sail and fly itinerary that will allow travelers to experience both flying and sailing across the Drak PAssage. Guests will board the National Geographic Explorer in Ushuaia, Argentina and cross the Drake Passage on their way to Antarctica. The return flight will depart from the Chilean Base of Presidente Frey to Puerto Natales, Chile.

Both of these trips are operated in collaboration with Lindblad Expeditions, with departures for each beginning in November 2024. As part of each itinerary, travelers will get to experience Antarctica alongside a group of experts, naturalists, and regional specialists. You’ll get to see wildlife including “Weddell and elephant seals, Adelie, chinstrap and gentoo penguins, and whales.” Additionally, travelers can explore outdoor activities, taking in the beautiful natural landscape and glaciers.

The National Geographic Explorer that will be used in each itinerary is an ice-class expedition cruise ship with a casual atmosphere and superior amenities.
