Antarctica21 operates air-cruise expeditions to Antarctica. The Company was founded in 2003 by adventurers who believed there was a better way to travel to Antarctica. Before Antarctica21, travelers who wanted to reach the Antarctic Peninsula had only one option: a 2-day sail across the notoriously rough seas of the Drake Passage. However, since 2003, the Company's boutique wilderness adventures have offered a more comfortable alternative. A two-hour flight takes guests from Punta Arenas, the Chilean gateway to Patagonia, directly to Antarctica, where they then board their expedition ship. No stormy crossing. No seasickness. Just quick, total immersion in the adventure of Antarctica. The Company operates small expedition vessels that are available for charter. Guests get on and off the ship efficiently, so their time ashore is focused where it should be: savoring every moment of a travel experience unlike any other.
