The plane continues flying over the mythical Cape Horn and the raft Drake Passage, to finally land at King George Island, gateway to the white continent, where most of the Antarctic scientific bases are located. Here you can also find the Chilean village “Villa Las Estrellas”, place where several Chilean families live all year round. Visit the impressive landscapes of the white continent, see part of its wildlife and experience the daily life of men populating this territory in the name of science and investigation.

Upon landing, you will be welcomed by our Antarctic-expert tour guide, who will take you on a tour visiting the following places:

• Visit to the main attraction points of the area.
