Antarctica Health and Safety Protocols

Your health and wellbeing are our priority

We are ready to welcome you to Antarctica with comprehensive health and safety protocols

Our priority in 2020 has been keeping guests and staff safe and ensuring Antarctica remains free of Covid-19. Over the last few months we have created a number of procedures and protocols to ensure this, making Antarctica one of the safest travel destinations in the world. Please bare in mind that due to ongoing uncertainty in the travel arena, we have been unable to mobilise all our resources in 2020 which means expeditions are limited in the 2020 – 2021 season. Please contact our team at Flagship for details and arrangements.


1. Reservation Management Prior to Departure

All guests will be contacted prior to departure with any specific health and safety information relevant to their upcoming travel. Guests are obliged to present upon arrival a negative molecular test result (PCR) for COVID-19, performed up to 72 hours before their departure.
