Region: Antarctica

Destinations: Antarctic Peninsula

Ship: m/v Plancius

Quite simply, the most outstanding trip! The natural beauty of the Antarctic Peninsula with its abundant wildlife and pristine ice structures is breathtaking. I paid extra for the camping and kayaking options and I’m so pleased I did. We were able to kayak up to 7 times, though I opted to keep it to 5 times so I could also do the some of the shore landings and zodiac cruises. The expedition staff were amazing as were the hotel staff on the ship. The expedition staff came from a range of backgrounds, many scientific and all were passionate about Antarctica. The food was excellent. Vegetarian options were always available. Food was always fresh and tasty. I can’t recommend this trip enough.
