Journey to the Bottom of the Earth

It’s being called an industry first. It’s also going to take a brave traveler, someone with incomparable fortitude. And, there are only six slots available. Intrigued? Crystal Cruises is offering a new two-day excursion to the bottom of the world, considered the least populated and coldest place on Earth, Antarctica

The “Extreme Overnight Adventure in Antarctica” will take only six Crystal guests to King George Island, Antarctica. There, they will trek through remote villages and a petrified arctic forest, as well to scientific research bases, and to the breeding and stomping grounds of penguin, elephant seals and fur seals.  The excursion is available as part of Crystal Symphony’s 19-day Christmas/New Year cruise departing December 20 from Buenos Aires.

The adventure departs from Ushuaia, Argentina, and rejoins the ship in Punta Arenas, Chile.  Highlights depend on weather conditions, and include:
travel by King Air beach craft from Ushuaia to King George Island; overnight accommodations at the Chilean Antarctic Institute; visits to the Chilean Eduardo Frei Antarctic Base and the Uruguayan Base Artigas; snow coach trek to Collins Glacier, which once covered 90 percent of the island; Zodiac excursion to Ardley Island and a penguin breeding ground; and a two-hour hiking expedition to observe elephant and fur seals, and Villa Las Estrellas.

Fares for the “Extreme Overnight Adventure” start at $9,774 per person.
