Getting There & Away

The South Shetlands are just half a day’s cruise across the Bransfield Strait from the Antarctic Peninsula, and all cruises stop here. There are also fly-cruise tours, by which you fly into King George Island from Chile or Argentina and then switch to a cruise for touring Antarctica.

Aerovías DAP flies from Punta Arenas, Chile, to Frei Station on King George Island in summer (weather permitting), using 10-passenger Beechcraft King Air turboprops and 70-passenger BAE-146s.
