VOYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

Falklands, South Georgia, Antarctica

Imagine standing next to a colony of black-browed albatrosses (with a bunch of Southern Rockhopper penguins mixed in between), or tens of thousands of three-foot-tall king penguins and their fuzzy brown chicks. Not to mention the massive mountain peaks and slow-moving glaciers cracking off big icebergs into the sea. Or the whales breaching in the distance as you sail down the Antarctic peninsula. That’s just a taste of what this phenomenal itinerary offers you. This is an Antarctic expedition on steroids, and not to be missed if your schedule permits three weeks of remote adventuring.

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.
