345 Kms from Punta Arenas
The first step towards reaching Antarctica from India is to fly in to Ushuaia, Argentina. Once you get there, you would need to get on a ship to Antarctica. Ushuaia is the southern-most city in the world and also goes by the name ‘The End of The World’. The two day journey from Ushuaia takes you through the Beagle Channel and the legendary Drake Passage. Crossing the legendary Drake Passage is an unforgettable experience as well as a formidable challenge. Its rough nature has given it the name ‘Sailor’s Everest’. You may even question your sanity for having decided to make your way from India to Antarctica!
