Adventures in Antarctica

Guest Review submitted by Dawn B.  Antarctica proved to be a dream vacation. I’ve visited many far-off places of the planet, but Antarctica holds a place of honor all its own. It is a magical land where we were privileged to spend 8 days exploring in their late spring (Nov-Dec) season. During our expedition we had landings twice per day – morning & afternoon.

Wildland traveler Keiko Pitter recently returned from the White Continent, which she explored as a single traveler on our Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica Peninsula trip aboard the 92-passenger expedition ship Sergey Vavilov .  Keiko has traveled extensively around the world but called this Antarctica cruise the 'trip of a lifetime' and returned to us with a wonderful report of the experience, plus tips for travelers considering this trip in the future.  So if Antarctica is on your radar, either for the near future or a distant dream, keep reading for first-hand advice!   Why did you choose this trip over other trips to Antarctica?

I had always heard that going to Antarctica without going to South Georgia and Falklands was a mistake, so now that I'm retired this was the perfect trip! I...
