Antarctica21, the adventure travel specialist that pioneered fly-and-sail expeditions to the White Continent, turns 20 this year. To celebrate the big day and promote knowledge and understanding of Antarctica and Antarctic penguins, the company searches for penguin lovers around the globe. Through March 17, apply to be Antarctica21’s Chief Flying Penguin Officer and to win a free trip.


“Twenty years ago, we introduced an innovative way of traveling to Antarctica,” said Jaime Vasquez, president, Antarctica21. “With a two-hour flight from the tip of South America, visitors can reach the White Continent quickly and in comfort, saving the two-day ship crossing over the rough waters of the Drake Passage. To celebrate our anniversary this year, we are giving one lucky person a chance to win a trip to Antarctica and share in our passion for the continent.”

Responsibilities of Chief Flying Penguin Officer include traveling to Punta Arenas to join the expedition, attending shipboard presentations by polar wildlife experts and exploring Antarctica by land and sea to learn firsthand about penguins and their habitat.
