The Antarctica21 Experience

As a niche specialist, they dedicate 100 percent of their time and resources to creating your Antarctic adventure. They pioneered air-cruise expeditions to Antarctica. That remains their focus. As a specialist, they understand intimately how to coordinate air and sea operations in the changeable Antarctic environment. They have completed over 200 fly and cruise departures, far more than any other company.

Antartica21 bring all that experience to your journey. Antarctica21 was founded in Punta Arenas, a traditional gateway for the first Antarctic explorers. As local actors in this remote region, they have built a solid infrastructure and an extensive network of key relationships to support your expedition.

Antarctica21 Cruises are best for

Their small expedition vessels are more like private yachts, offering direct access to areas along the Antarctic shore that larger ships simply can’t reach. And because they have fewer guests, you get on and off faster, so your time ashore is focused where it should be: savouring every moment of a travel experience unlike any other.

Atmosphere & Experience onboard 

On every journey, the Antarctica21 team includes at least 12 expert polar guides and their number one priority is ensuring you have an unforgettable experience. The team knows the region’s unique geography, natural history, wildlife and ecology, and loves sharing their expertise with you.

Their international team of veteran Antarctic pilots, experienced sea captains, expert polar guides, academics, and seasoned travel professionals create the Antarctica21 experience. With passion, creativity and dedicated teamwork, each expedition is handcrafted, unique and personal.
