Sis, we understand that this trip is pricey. A main reason many never make it to the 7th continent is due to it’s not-so-favorable, high-end price tag. For many, traveling to Antarctica can be costly, and we get that. That's why we’ve extended our payment period for up to 16 months. This will help keep your monthly payments affordable, so you can focus on the part that matters—getting there.
DRAKE "RITE OF" PASSAGE
The Drake "rite of" Passage. Positioned between the southern tail of South America and the Antarctic Peninsula's north-sweeping arm is a lively little waterway known as the Drake Passage. The Drake is considered by many polar travelers to be the gateway to the Antarctic, while others view it as the necessary rite of passage everyone must experience before enjoying the boundless natural wonders of Antarctica.
7TH CONTINENT CHECK OFF
Be one of the very few to cross the Antarctic Circle and witness one of the planet's last frontiers.
The Antarctic Circle is one of the most isolated and remote destinations in the world. So naturally, it’s many a traveler’s dream to explore the vast white wilderness of the Antarctic islands. This is Earth’s final frontier—a pristine continent of elemental forces. Less than a century ago, only a handful of humans had experienced its dynamic environment of ice, snow, rock, and water.
KING GEORGE ISLAND
King George Island is the largest of the South Shetland Islands and lies 75 miles off the coast of Antarctica.
The island was first claimed by the British in 1819 and named after King George III, however the following years were turbulent with many disputes about who owned the island. King George Island now serves as an aerodrome for flights to Antarctica, and is known as the unofficial capital of the continent because of the numerous research stations there.
Deception Island is an alias for an active volcano, one of just two in Antarctica, and Port Foster is its flooded caldera, formed by a violent eruption some 10,000 years ago.
