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
Every step of the way was made easy from the beginning to end.
I could not have been more pleased with my recent trip to western Greenland for a two week kayaking expedition around the Upernavik Archipelago. Having kayaked with David in Antarctica on a previous trip, I witnessed first hand how thorough and focused he is on the group’s safety as well as extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the wildlife, geology and history of the white continent. That previous experience made my decision easy to book with the team at Twin Tracks Expeditions for my kayaking expedition in Greenland. Every step of the way was made easy from the beginning to end. The pre-trip communication with Heather was flawless. She answered all of my questions and was always incredibly responsive. She is definitely an invaluable asset to the Twin Tracks team. Once on the ground in Greenland, our guide Rickard was absolutely amazing! He is always prepared for anything and also super knowledgeable on the history of the region and its flora and fauna. And even though the trip was expedition style and the passengers were all very capable paddlers and campers, he was always there and happy to assist us with anything from setting up our tents and teaching us helpful paddling tips to lending an extra jacket to someone in need. Under Rickard’s guidance, throughout the entirety of the trip I always felt very well taken care of and very safe. I totally recommend to anyone who is interested in exploring the polar regions to consider Twin Tracks Expeditions when booking, you will not be disappointed.
