Set sail aboard luxurious Magellan Explorer, a purpose-built ship for Antarctic fly-and-cruise expeditions, for a trip combining Patagonia and Antarctica minus the notoriously rough Drake Passage. Designed by Chilean naval architects, Antartica21, the ship offers adventure activities, observation decks and plenty of photo opportunities.
Its 38 spacious rooms and suites accommodate up to 73 guests during air-cruises with options for private balconies. Light-filled interiors by Enrique Concha & Co are contemporary with neutral tones designed to complement icy seascapes outside.
Dine at the Magellan’s stylish restaurant offering buffet breakfast, lunch and table service dinner, all with a selection of premium Chilean wines. Experience freezing al fresco dining with unrivalled views on the barbecue deck followed by hot drinks in the library.
Guests can enjoy learning about the Antarctic’s fascinating ecosystem via lectures and the interactive science lab. Equipped with several Zodiacs, otherworldly excursions to the shore include discovering penguin colonies, fjords and snowshoeing.
