Ultra Luxury Expeditions to Antarctica by Private Jet and Chartered Yacht
August 27, 2014
Inaugural season on yacht ENIGMA XK to introduce new level of luxury and adventure
Building on the success of their collaboration earlier in 2014, Chapman Freeborn and EYOS expeditions have launched their unique private jet and yacht charter expeditions in Antarctica.
Antarctica will now benefit from the platform that saw guests complete door to door round trip expeditions to the Arctic earlier in the year, utilizing private aircraft from Chapman Freeborn and a luxury expedition vessel from EYOS Expeditions
The prospect of a trip to the most remote continent on the planet is made all the more unique as it will see the maiden season of EYOS Expedition's latest charter vessel – the Enigma XK.
Currently finishing up a three year refit; the 72 meter, 12-guest ENIGMA XK will be the best equipped expedition yacht afloat.
The yacht will certainly not be without its creature comforts, having been specifically designed to provide spectacular vistas of the dramatic Antarctic landscapes that it passes. The generous Owner's Suite affords an astounding 180 degree view from below the bridge while her opulent lounge offers guests a truly luxurious experience, all while gargantuan Antarctic icebergs pass by. Guests will also benefit from an on-board gym, hair salon and masseuse.
Ben Lyons, CEO at EYOS Expeditions commented on the vessel: “The ENIGMA XK is one of the very few yachts designed to be a true expedition vessel. She has a professional crew that understands the unique demands of an expedition, a sturdy hull to punch through Antarctic ice flows and the range to explore far away from any supporting infrastructure. When you combine the incredible scenery of Antarctica with the facilities of the ENIGMA XK and the convenience of private jet transfers, you truly have the ultimate Antarctic experience”
Chapman-Freeborn will be crafting air charter solutions alongside EYOS as they provide expert yacht charter on a variety of Antarctic options. Expected to be the most popular is a 10 day option where guests fly directly to Punta Arenas, Chile before boarding a specially equipped aircraft to the Antarctic continent. Another option is for guests to fly into Ushuaia, Argentina and begin their expedition from there with a sail past the famous Cape Horn.
Alex Berry, Group Director of Sales at Chapman Freeborn comments: “The truly isolated and breathtakingly stunning continent of Antarctica is no longer reserved for intrepid explorers and scientists; guests can now explore the world's most spectacular destination, all from the comfort, luxury and privacy of a private jet and new expedition yacht”
Luxury expedition yacht charter prices start at 250,000 Euros per week plus expenses
Return private jet charters to Puntas Arenas from New York to start from 145,000 Euros and London from 227,000 Euros
Private jet charters are available from most worldwide departure points
