Getting to Antarctica

Flights are not included in the prices shown for our Antarctic holidays. This is because many of our clients prefer to choose their own flight route to include a stopover on the way, or to extend their stay before or after the voyage. For this reason we quote all flight and any additional ground arrangements required on an individual basis, and will secure the best available fares for your own specific route and travel dates.

The Airlines

For our long-haul destinations a variety of routes and fares are often available. This not only provides scope for each of our clients to choose the best route to suit them, but also allows total flexibility to include stopovers along the way, or the most direct routings if time is limited. British Airways is the only airline to fly direct from the UK to Buenos Aires, which can also be reached with Iberia via Madrid. LAN Airlines and Aerolineas Argentinas operate flights within Argentina and Chile. For Australasian routes we largely use the services of Air New Zealand and British Airways/Qantas.

Passport & Visa Information

No visas are required by British subjects (being "Citizen of the United Kingdom") for the majority of destinations featured in our Antarctic programme. The only exception is Australia - our team will be happy to offer advice accordingly.


It has been the best expedition in our life. We had sun all the time.
