Crossing the Drake Passage is an explorer’s milestone for many, but it adds several days to your travels. On this new itinerary, experience the best of both worlds as you sail via ship to Antarctica and then return to Puerto Natales on a two-hour flight, saving time without sacrificing any of the
adventure. Travel with a diverse team of experts aboard the National Geographic Explorer, the definitive expedition ship.Venture into channels and coves framed by towering peaks. Watch for whales off the bow; Zodiac cruise around enormous icebergs; and hike, kayak, and even possibly cross-country ski (in November) in complete tranquility. Choose an active agenda or surrender to the pleasures of relaxing downtime and shipboard camaraderie. Plus, get top shots with the help of a National Geographic Photography Expert.
