Travel + Leisure Names Us 'The Antarctica Experts'

Dec 2011

We’ve had a long-standing love affair with Antarctica. For the past decade, our Antarctica specialists have helped travelers from around the globe experience the awe-inspiring marvels of Antarctica. That’s why we were completely elated to see Antarctica spotlighted in Travel + Leisure's "28 Trips of a Lifetime," providing further acclaim to the wonders travelers encounter in this region of the planet.

Planning "trips of a lifetime" is the essence that inspires the ExpeditionTrips’ team. Travel + Leisure's Lisa Cheung said of our front-man Ashton Palmer, "during his 50-plus expeditions to Antarctica, "Palmer has played almost every role: Zodiac driver; naturalist; expedition leader." Recognized as “The Antarctica Experts” by Travel + Leisure, our expedition specialists have explored the 'White Continent' first-hand and have a passion for helping others discover the allure of the southernmost continent—from choosing the right ship and itinerary to deciding when to travel and what to pack.

Polar travelers can peruse a myriad of options—from 54-passenger research vessels to 200-passenger luxury expedition ships. Choose from a 10 to 13-day Classic Peninsula trip with opportunities to kayak or camp, an all-encompassing Antarctica, Falkland Islands and South Georgia voyage, or opt for a milestone Antarctic Circle Crossing.

Antarctica travel is ever-changing, and each season brings new itineraries and adventure options. Explore Antarctica from the vantage of a kayak, don a pair of cross-country skis or snowshoes, camp overnight on the pristine snow, or learn to better capture the experience through hands-on instruction gained in a photography program.

Our team is honored that past Antarctica travelers have overwhelmingly described it as, “a trip of a lifetime.” We look forward to helping you experience your trip of lifetime to Antarctica.

"Our trip to Antarctica exceeded all of our expectations…It was probably our best trip ever! (and we have been traveling extensively since 1970). Our experience working with ExpeditionTrips was positive, and we will definitely book future trips with you again."
-Jennifer & Richard Wilkinson

"We have been on every continent and this was our last big hurrah! The most memorable part of the expedition for me...well was basically everything! If I had to pick something it would be hiking up a mountain to a 360 degree view of Antarctica and a penguin colony at the top of the mountain. It was just so unreal."
