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.

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.
