In the early 2000s, a group of friends in Punta Arenas, Chile, came together to develop a new model of Antarctic tourism; one that would provide an alternative to the traditional navigation from South America across the stormy waters of the Drake Passage.

Antarctica is an ecological wonder that has bewitched explorers, scientists and voyagers alike for two centuries.

This fascinating territory contains more than 90% of the earth’s land ice, which transforms it into the largest fresh water reserve on earth. Among the main species that make up marine Antarctic fauna are whales, seals, penguins as well as a variety of sea birds.

Your adventure to the seventh continent will allow you to meet these incredible creatures while enjoying the indelible scenery of mountainous glaciers and roaming icebergs.

Antarctica’s matchless beauty and extreme climate conditions make this one of the most exotic destinations in the world.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Antarctica XXI offers a boutique-style wilderness adventure, not a cruise.

With a smaller number of passengers, disembarkation is fast and efficient so you spend time exploring, not waiting. A two-hour flight takes you from Punta Arenas in the Chilean Patagonia, directly to Antarctica where you board your expedition ship.

AIR CRUISES

Visit Antarctica for a remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime experience. We have five unique itineraries to choose from.

SHIPS & AIRCRAFT

Antarctic air-cruises is all we do. As a boutique specialist we dedicate 100% of our resources to the organisation of your Antarctic trip of a lifetime.

WILDLIFE

In the austral summer, large numbers of

penguins, whales, seals, and seabirds congregate along the Antarctic Peninsula to feed and reproduce. Present in abundant numbers, these animals will provide endless inspiration for your photographs.

LANDSCAPE

Antarctica is a remote, magical place that will greet you with its awe-inspiring beauty. See peaceful bays dotted with colossal icebergs; cruise along deep fjords and see massive glaciers; be amazed by sharp snowy peaks that jut out of the sea.

ADVENTURE

Adventure awaits in Antarctica. Cruise at sea

level with our Zodiac boats and feel the spray of seawater on your cheeks. Follow in the footsteps of early explorers as you hike on Antarctic soil.

WHAT TRAVELERS

HAVE TO SAY

Highly recommended

I did the 10 day cruise to Antarctica aboard the MV Ocean Nova sailing out of Ushuaia in Argentina and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it (even the rough crossing of the Drake Passage). 

Amazing Journey, Amazing Staff

We recently completed the "Fly and Cruise" trip to Antarctica with Antarctica 21. The entire trip was wonderful. We actually booked through Road Scholar and they deserve some of the accolades as they bookended the trip with Welcome and Wrap up dinners and travel arrangements.

Exceptional in Every Way


It’s hard to know where to begin this review — there are far too many elements that went into the experience. So perhaps the best place to start is simply to say that the trip was extraordinary in every way. And in no particular order, to then articulate what made it so special.
