With this step we got a whole lot closer to exploring the Antarctic Peninsula. It was a great occasion to celebrate, with a spectacular sunset in the background.
If you are interested in doing this, there are a lot of things to consider, especially the impact of humans on this fantastic part of our planet. While you could argue that one does damage by travelling at all, I don’t think you’d be reading a blog about travelling if this was your position, would you?
The company M and I travel with takes great care to explain and help protect the delicate eco system we are about to see. I cannot compare them with other companies, but Quark Expeditions has highly motivated people who love nature and want to share this love.
Another consideration unfortunately is money. I don’t own a car, which is good, because I just spent the amount for a small one coming here.
Time is a factor too. Take your time, it’s totally worth it.
Hope to update you soon with stories of animal sightings.
