ANTARCTICA

HOW TO GET THERE

The Antarctic is no longer an impossible destination for travelers. Now tourists can arrive in the White Continent by sea and air. The sea trip is relatively risky and quite long, whereas flights are much easier, although occasionally weather conditions preclude takeoff.

By sea

In the cities of Punta Arenas and Puerto Williams cruises are organized to the Chilean Antarctic. Boat expeditions can last between 7 and 20 days.

By air

Flights from the Chilean Patagonian cities of Punta Arenas and Puerto Williams land at Teniente Marsh airport in Presidente Frei Base on King George Island. The trip is in Twin Otter planes and lasts 4 hours (if one leaves from Punta Arenas), or 2 hours (from Puerto Williams). During the flight, one gets a "bird's eye view" of the beautiful landscapes of Tierra del Fuego, Cabo de Hornos National Park and Drake Passage.

Flights back can be delayed for anywhere between several hours and several days, due to weather changes, as blizzards can happen at any moment.



TRANSPORTATION IN ANTARCTICA


Due to the existence of the Antarctic Treaty, which fosters environmental care, motor vehicles are rarely used for traveling across the ice surface.

On King George Island, due to the scientific bases being fairly close to each other, trekking is a mandatory option for visitors. Access to Chile bay is afforded by Zodiac-type vessels
