The best way to describe our experience of Antarctica is unbelievable. We did the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antartica trip on the Quark’s Sea Spirit. The whole adventure was outstanding from the vessel and it’s comfort, to the guides and their experience and knowledge. We were able to make every landing that was planned including a few in that the guides had not been able to do for the last few seasons. As a result of this our wildlife experience was fantastic and we have many memorable photos to show for it. Our highlights were:
- Landing on Elephant Island on Christmas Eve and during a snow fall.
- Salisbury Plain and the 250 000+ breeding pairs of penguins.
- Just watching the behaviours and individual personalities of each penguin, even though they all look alike.
- Arriving on the Antarctic Peninsula on Christmas Day with absolutely perfect weather.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this trip to other travellers as it truly is an adventure of a lifetime. Saying that I can’t wait to go back. We have included a few photos that you might be interested in using.
