Sail Through the World’s Last True Wilderness with APT’s New Antarctica Program


APT has launched its new Antarctica program, which according to General Manager Marketing & Sales, Debra Fox, offers a portfolio of once-in-a-lifetime journeys that enable guests to experience the sheer beauty and magnitude of this frozen wilderness.

The brochure features eight itineraries ranging from 15- to 39-days in length. Guests can choose from either a 10- or 18-night Antarctica Cruise which is then combined with one of a selection of small group South American land journeys and Galapagos or Amazon cruises.

Sailing aboard the Sea Explorer, an all-suite luxury expedition ship built especially for Antarctic exploration, guests will be joined by some of the industry's most experienced expedition guides. Also onboard for the duration of the cruise is a dedicated APT Expedition Leader and a doctor.

The 18-night Antarctica Cruise sets sail from Ushuaia through the Beagle Channel, taking in The Falkland Islands, South Georgia and the South Shetland Islands. Sailing through a pristine wilderness of snow, ice, mountains and waterways, highlights include: shore excursions aboard zodiacs; wildlife spotting at penguin rookeries, seal wallows, bird colonies and whale feeding areas; and the chance to spot the iconic Emperor penguin.

Small group South America tours for a maximum of 28 guests and ranging from 11 to 20 days in length are combined with the cruise to create a choice of the 30-day Santiago to Buenos Aires with Antarctica Cruise; 38-day Galapagos, Peru & Buenos Aires with Antarctica Cruise; or 39-day Best of South America with Antarctica Cruise.

APT is offering a choice of two SuperDeals. Couples can save up to $3,500 with APT's 'Companion Fly Free, including taxes' deal, available when two people book a South America land tour and an Antarctica cruise, as well as flights from Australia and New Zealand. APT is also featuring a 'Business Class Offer' whereby guests can fly business class return from Australia to South America from $5,595 per person, including air taxes.

SuperDeals are valid on all bookings until 31 May 2014 or until sold out. Terms and conditions apply and offer is subject to availability.
