Cruise Case Study

Antarctica 21 Magellan Explorer

Antarctica21 operates air-cruise expeditions to Antarctica. The company was founded in 2003 by adventurers who believed there was a better way to travel to Antarctica. Before Antarctica21, travelers who wanted to reach the Antarctic Peninsula had only one option: a 2-day sail across the notoriously rough seas of the Drake Passage. However, since 2003, the company’s boutique wilderness adventures have offered a more comfortable alternative. A two-hour flight takes guests from Punta Arenas, the Chilean gateway to Patagonia, directly to Antarctica, where they then board their expedition ship. No stormy crossing. No seasickness. Just quick, total immersion in the adventure of Antarctica. The company operates small expedition vessels that carry a maximum of 75 guests, offering flexibility and access that larger ships simply can’t match. Guests get on and off the ship efficiently, so their time ashore is focused where it should be: savoring every moment of a travel experience unlike any other.

As pioneers of the fly-cruise model to Antarctica, our philosophy is to bring evidence-based adaptable and sustainable solutions to our operations. We approached today´s new challenges with this same philosophy. Partnering with AtmosAir Solutions allows us to focus on providing once-in-a-lifetime trips to Antarctica, while knowing we have another important layer of protection for our crew, staff and travelers.”

- Diana Galimberti Executive Vice President, Operations and Product Antarctica21
