  • Why we love Antarctica

    Nothing prepares you for travelling to Antarctica. Not David Attenborough, not Happy Feet, not Google Street View and definitely not a travel brochure or website (not even this one).

    Hitch a ride on a Geckos tour and you’ll get to zip around to penguin colonies aboard a zodiac boat, see scores of sleeping fur seals, watch a pod of Orcas rally beside your boat and smell penguin colonies before you see them.

    After you’ve had your fix of curious creatures and gargantuan glaciers, tilt your head back for a mind-blowing, one-on-one date with the universe. Antarctica’s killer combo of calm air, lack of light pollution and minimal smog makes it the ultimate place on earth to stargaze.

    It’s a sickeningly beautiful display, best seen with your own eyes (as opposed to someone else’s).

    Antarctic travel is 100% regret-free. Do it.

Personal belongings A security safe is controlled by the hotel manager. You can leave your valuables here for the duration of the trip as little money is needed onboard. All drinks and items purchased at the ship’s store can be put on an account and paid at the end of the cruise by cash or credit card.

    Every traveller has a different sense of value, but I am confident that not a single one who has returned from Antarctica would ever question whether it was worth it. And what with it being the 100 year anniversary of Ernest Shackleton’s incredible feat of survival, there’s surely no better time...
