We traveled to Antarctica (via Argentina) over the Christmas and New Year holidays in 2011-2012.
The entire experience was amazing and I would recommend arranging your trip through Abercrombie and Kent – primarily because of the expedition staff.
I am the first of my friends to travel to Antarctica. Actually, I’m the first person I know who has traveled to Antarctica. But I wish that I had more information before I left, so without further ado, here is a review of the travel agency, Abercrombie and Kent, as well as a review of the ship, Le Boreal.
Finally, below are our Daily Travel Logs.
