Summary

Although getting to Antarctica using miles and points is typically virtually impossible, it can be done by using Starpoints, according to this article written by Charles Barkowski of Running With Miles — but there is a major catch to that strategy — otherwise, you would typically be better off with this deal.

There are reports around the Internet at various travel weblogs that the least expensive way to visit Antarctica is to travel to Ushuaia — which is the southernmost city in the world — and book a cruise at the last minute in person. However, how soon you can secure a space aboard a vessel leaving for Antarctica at the last minute depends on the occupancy of the vessel and the policies of the company operating the vessel…

…plus you have no idea how little — or how much — money you are going to spend. Those are not comforting thoughts; but they could be an adrenaline rush if you are an adventurer.

In the case of this sale, you have the opportunity to secure a reservation for definite dates and times — subject to the weather and other potential variables of traveling to Antarctica — for relatively not much more money than running down blind to Ushuaia…

…but if you are so inclined, you can also book a reservation for a triple occupancy cabin for less than the lowest sale price at any time on some itineraries as long as there is availability.

In other words, do your research and ensure that the cruise ship on which you decide to embark is the best option for you in terms of price, amenities, schedule and other factors.

One day, I am going to Antarctica, as that is at the top of my list of places to where I want to travel; but alas yet again, not this time — so I hope that you are able to take advantage of this offer.

Please say hello to a penguin for me if you do go…

    The only down side is most of these cruise are full of mainland Chinese. you wouldn’t want to be with them on a boat for more than ten minutes.
