Visit Antarctica in as little as 6 days with an Air Cruise. You save several days sailing time across the vast Southern Seas by taking a flight from Punta Arenas, Chile to King George Island, just off the Antarctic Peninsula. You save valuable time that can be spent exploring the impressive fjords, glaciers, and wildlife that calls the Antarctic their home as you follow in the footsteps of famed explorers like Shackleton. Most shorter itineraries of 6-10 days skip over the Falkland Islands, South Georgia Island and other ports favoring spending limited time on the Antarctic Peninsula. Cruise Antarctica in style on a luxurious 6-day or 8-day Air Cruise on the Hebridean Sky. Can't decide which Antarctica cruise or air cruise is best for you?
