A Journey to the ends of
the earth

This month I’ll take you to one of the most mystical and untouched regions in the world: Antarctica. Known for its captivating landscapes, challenging cruising grounds, and pure wildlife interactions this destination offers an extraordinary experience. Discover a solitude you never knew existed as you travel through this remote sanctuary on board your ice-strengthened yacht. Spend your days ashore exploring the southern-most continent before returning to a piping hot beverage prepared by your crew, as you check off this humbling bucket list item few travelers have the privilege of experiencing.

Begin your journey

Begin your journey by flying to Punta Arenas, one of Chile’s most southern cities. From there you can fly directly to King George Island on the most exclusive transcontinental flight. You’ll avoid crossing the Drake Passage by sea, an infamously tumultuous voyage. Before heading to the waterfront, take time to visit Russia’s Bellingshausen Station, home to the first Orthodox church in Antarctica. Embark on your journey where you will travel through the Antarctic Sound dubbed “Iceberg Alley.” Here you will find yourself surrounded by cathedral-like icebergs as tall as buildings, drifting through the ocean from the Weddell Sea. If you choose to cruise the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula, devote your time to searching for the elusive Emperor Penguins. During the winter months, the Emperor Penguins breed on Snow Hill Island. Consider yourself lucky if you are able to catch a glimpse of these playful animals during the summer months.

Devil Island

A stop-off at Devil Island will introduce you to comical gentoo penguin colonies scurrying across the ice and Weddell seals gracefully swimming past your yacht. Continue to Brown Bluff, a premier anchorage location. Formed by a sub-glacial volcanic eruption, Brown Bluff gets its name from the color of the volcanic rock which flows into a pristine beach made of small pebbles. Experience this rare geological phenomenon while watching Adelie penguins meander their way to the sea.

Antarctic Peninsula

Continue your journey on the western side of the Antarctic peninsula along the Danco Coast and Gerlache Strait. Here you can customize your itinerary with a variety of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including taking the yacht’s tender for a cruise among the icebergs where you may be visited by a humpback whale or orca swimming beside you. Visit a scientific research station like Almirante Brown Antarctic Base, which overlooks Paradise Bay, where you can bobsled down the slope to the station. Spend the day taking in the breathtaking scenery from the comfort of your yacht deck where the crew will serve sizzling refreshments and exquisite cocktails.

Arctic CIRCLE

If the weather permits, your Captain can venture through the maze of ice and cruise further south to the Crystal Sound you’ll become one of the elite travelers to cross the Arctic Circle. Once you have reached the Arctic Circle, head for the deserted British base on Detaille Island. Only in use for two years, the base has been seemingly untouched since 1959 and offers a glimpse of life as an Antarctic resident during the golden age of travel and exploration. Those seeking even more thrills can continue south through “The Gullet,” an appropriately named passage resembling the digestive tract. Difficult to navigate through, the reward of high mountain views on one side and plunging glaciers on the other will leave you in awe. Take advantage of the 24 hours of sunlight to explore every wonderous sight in this magnificent and vast region.

Revel in the stunning beauty of this blissfully desolate destination from on board your private yacht. The dramatic and unique landscape will be frozen in your memory for years to come.
