It’s not every day you’re planning to go this off the beaten path. We offer impartial advice and support to help you find the best ship, itinerary, and time of year to visit these remote regions. With a combined two and a half decades of experience working as polar expedition guides on ships, leading dog sled teams, and polar kayaking trips, we can advise on all elements of your polar travel adventure, from which cabin is the best choice on the ship, down to what to pack so you’ll be ahead of the game.
Choosing the right Antarctic adventure for your needs can be a tough call. If you’re keen to step on the 7th continent and get in some penguin-time, an Antarctic Classic itinerary is a great choice.
If that sounds great PLUS you want to follow in the footsteps of Shackleton, experiencing what it’s like to stand on a beach in the company of 100,000 King penguins, the Falklands/South Georgia/Antarctica voyage may just be the ticket.
And if you’re short on time why not skip the sea days and just fly down to the Antarctic Peninsula with a Fly-Cruise expedition? Get in touch and we can talk you through the options.
The good news is - you've got options!
The bad news is, how are you supposed to know which one to choose? There are a lot of factors to weigh in your decision such as:
- time of the season - which can affect what wildlife you’ll see
- ship capacity - which can affect how much time you get on land
- price point - which can determine whether you’re sharing a toilet with the rest of the deck or luxuriating in your en suite shower
- available adventure activities - Kayaking? Camping? Both?
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg (pun intended). Give us a call and we’ll help you dig through all the options to find the perfect mix of all the above at zero extra cost to you.
REAL ADVENTURES. REAL PEOPLE
She really took care of me and even arranged to have a bottle of wine appear in my room for my birthday!
When I first began talking to Heather about going to Antarctica I knew right away that I’d picked the perfect person to talk to and put my trust in. Having worked on some of the ships herself, her knowledge of the different companies, and their ships, was first rate which made my choices so much easier.
Knowing that she had been to Antarctica multiple times as part of the crew, I was able to ask her the many questions that I had and know that I could fully trust her answers. She really took care of me and even arranged to have a bottle of wine appear in my room for my birthday! I’d wholeheartedly recommend talking to Heather, and the team at Twin Tracks, if Antarctica is your dream trip.
We’re a different kind of agency. We work on the ships, with the teams, and are currently active in the polar regions. Our insider advice is truly that - straight from the field - and it's updated in real time if things change.
