Is this trip for me? This trip combines an ocean cruise with some air travel which starts and finishes in Punta Arenas, Chile. A great cruise for those of you wanting to see the incredible icescapes and wildlife in one of the most remote places on earth, the coldest, highest, windiest, driest, and most inhospitable continent, Antarctica. The Ocean Nova has capacity for 62 passengers with all outside cabins with private facilities. In addition to a glass enclosed observation lounge and presentation room, there is an infirmary, a library, a bar and an exercise room. The ship has Zodiac boats that are perfect for landings and wildlife spotting. Baggage limits of 20kg apply. Medical insurance with aero evacuation strongly recommended While every effort is made to adhere to the published itinerary, you should realize that with this kind of adventurous travel that changes will sometimes be made due to unpredictable or severe weather conditions. A tight time connection with an Antarctic expedition is unwise so we strongly advise a flexible air ticket be held for onward travel and that in any case you do not book a flight out on the expected day of arrival into Punta Arenas. All passengers will be required to fill in a participation form prior to sailing. These voyages are intended for persons in reasonably good health. You should be comfortable travelling in remote areas and be happy on both large and small boats.
