'Twenty years ago, we introduced an innovative way of traveling to Antarctica,' Antarctica21 President Jaime Vasquez said. '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.'
