Take a scheduled flight to George Island in the South Shetland Islands.
As you step off the plane, let the clean Antarctic air fill your lungs along with the excitement of the journey ahead. You will walk past Chile’s Frei Station and Russia’s Bellingshausen Station to reach the shore and board a Zodiac directly to The Magellan Explorer waiting to take you to the Antarctic Peninsula.
The Magellan Explorer is a great choice if you want a luxury cruise in Antarctica without the Drake Passage crossing. This small luxury exploration vessel has a capacity for just 73 guests in seven cabin categories and 10 zodiac boats for accessing land. On board, there is an impressive gym a sauna, an indoor and outdoor observation deck, and a well-stocked library. Most cabins feature a private balcony and sitting area, and the interiors are calm and contemporary throughout the ship.
