Feeling more like private yachts than cruise ships, small expedition vessels give you privileged access to the islands of the South Atlantic, taking you where larger ships cannot. With a smaller number of passengers, disembarkation is fast and efficient so you spend time exploring, not waiting.
For the 2020-21 season, one departure is available on board the Magellan Explorer - Oct 3-17, 2020.
Strong and agile, Magellan Explorer has been developed from the ground up as the ideal platform for air-cruise operations. Several international polar expedition experts have contributed to the design of the ship. Working with designers, engineers, and naval architects, they developed a wide range of technical solutions designed to enhance the expedition experience of guests.
She is the world’s first expedition ship custom designed for Antarctic air-cruise operations. The ship provides a stylish base for our guests’ adventures, combining excellence in expedition and boutique hospitality.
Lost World Adventures itineraries can be tailor-made according to your plans and preferences: budget, hotel selections, travel dates, optional excursions, length of trip, etc.
