Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Peninsula

Ship: m/v Plancius

The expedition on the m/v Plancius to the Antarctic Peninsula was priceless. I loved every moment of it, even crossing the Drake Passage. We were incredibly lucky with the weather which allowed us to kayak every day. The staff and expedition leaders were amazing with their service and knowledge about Antarctica and the wildlife. We also saw humpback whales, seals, penguins and albatrosses—to name a few. I also camped overnight in a bivy (do it! but bring ear plugs). My fellow passengers were from Europe, the US, Australia and Asia and a range of age groups which was great. The food served was outstanding and they catered to carnivores and vegetarians. We even had a BBQ at the back of the boat one evening with disco and music as we were sailing past icebergs! It was an unforgettable trip of a lifetime and I would recommend it to anyone who loves photography, want to learn about wildlife and most of all have a great time with likeminded people who are passionate about Antarctica and its conservation.
