Antarc­tica and At acama

Hong Kong Tatler - - Great Escapes -

Light­foot Travel, which has of­fices in Sin­ga­pore, Hong Kong and Dubai and ar­ranges lux­ury be­spoke trips to coun­tries on six con­ti­nents, launched a new 15-day itin­er­ary in Au­gust that takes guests from the arid Ata­cama Desert in Chile to the frozen splen­dour of Antarc­tica. The trip starts at a bou­tique Re­lais & Châteaux prop­erty near Ata­cama and pro­ceeds to Punta Are­nas, from where a yacht departs for Antarc­tica. Guests spend six days cruis­ing, kayak­ing from the yacht and ob­serv­ing all man­ner of wildlife, from pen­guins to whales. The trip ends back in Chilean wine coun­try. Only three cab­ins are still avail­able for the 2014–15 sea­son, but book­ings are al­ready open for next sea­son, which runs from De­cem­ber 2015 to Fe­bru­ary 2016. The trips sell out quickly, so trav­ellers are en­cour­aged to book eight to nine months in ad­vance. light­foot­travel.com
