For travellers who wish to book an Antarctic voyage and follow in the 'foot steps' of legendary explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton this coming winter, 2016/17 marking the 100th anniversary of Shackleton's remarkable expedition, Antarctica, the last great bastion of exploration and home of the 7th Continent, is an unforgettable experience with deep history, rich wildlife and unique and priceless sights.
For the shortest, most cost-effective Antarctic adventure, Swoop's Express Tour of Antarctica is a great option. The itinerary of this 6-day trip is also ideal for those with limited time and wishing to combine Antarctica with some exploring of Patagonia. On the Express Tour, time is shortened by sailing one way and flying back on the return from King George Island to Punta Arenas, Chile. Passengers experience one day in Antarctica as well as a zodiac landing on Cape Horn.
