When you choose to visit Antarctica, Chile and Argentina have so much more to offer while you are in the neighborhood! – from a short visit to a comprehensive tour of Patagonia. When traveling to the “end of the world” we know you will want a couple of days to adjust and see some of the wonderful sights and attractions of Buenos Aires or Santiago before continuing on to Ushuaia or Punta Arenas. And you still need to get to Ushuaia or Punta Arenas, so we include your transfers, domestic air to Ushuaia/Punta Arenas, two nights in a deluxe luxury hotel, and a tour with all our Antarctica programs. Just one of the added value components when travelling with Explor Cruises.
