Our Travel with Us programme allows you to travel on a hand picked adventure with one of the team from Skilled Travel.
In 2020 our Director, Sean Skilton, will be hosting a wonderful trip to Antarctica in conjunction with APT and French cruise line Ponant.
Let Sean take you on the trip of a lifetime, a 15 day adventure to the white continent.
Your journey starts in Buenos Aires where you'll have the opportunity to explore the city including the colourful La Boco district and experience a lively tango show. We'll then fly to the port city of Ushuaia at the southern tip of South America to embark on our cruise to Antarctica onboard Ponant's Le Boréal luxury expedition ship.
Sailing across the Drake Passage we will learn all about the adventures ahead from the Expedition Leader and the team of naturalist guides that are accompanying us.
Once we reach Antarctica our Captain will tailor the itinerary to maximise our experience and provide the most exciting sightseeing opportunities available with the most favourable ice and weather conditions. Each day we'll enjoy morning and afternoon Zodiac ride. Visit penguin rookeries, seal colonies and with luck have the opportunity to see orcas, humpback and minke whales that frequent the waters.
We'll then sail back across the Drake Passage, returning to Ushuaia where we'll tour Tierra del Fuego National Park before flying back to Buenos Aires.
Why not then continue your South American journey with an optional extension to Iguazú Falls and Rio De Janeiro? Take this extended touring option and ask us if you qualify for your travelling companion to fly for free from Australia to South America - APT Companion Fly Free Including Taxes conditions apply.
