VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

Antarctic Classic / Antarctic Peninsula

It’s hard to describe the highlights of a trip to Antarctica as it’s all pretty mind-blowing….from the apartment-building sized icebergs to the towering jagged snowy peaks of the peninsula, down to the thousands of adorable penguins waddling right past you on landings or the breathtaking moment when a whale surfaces next to your zodiac. The Antarctic Peninsula gives you a taste of the earth’s last true wilderness. With no permanent human inhabitants, you will be one of the very few humans to ever step foot on this mysterious white continent.

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.
