Cruise Programmes and durations
The itinerary above is based on a 10-night cruise programme on the G Expedition. Longer cruise programmes are available offering a more in-depth exploration of the Antarctic Peninsula, including the chance to navigate further south to cross the Antarctic Circle and celebrate a special geographical milestone, or the chance to explore the lesser-visited eastern side of the peninsula and the Weddell Sea. It is also possible to combine the Antarctic Peninsula with the wildlife rich Falkland Islands and South Georgia. Additionally, there are also fly-cruise programmes, which enable travellers to save time by taking flight (one-way or both ways) across the Drake Passage.
