National Geographic Traveller (UK) has teamed up with Intrepid Travel to offer an incredible 10-day adventure to the wilds of the Antarctic Peninsula.
The Antarctic Peninsula is an iconic frontier, and this 10-day adventure showcases its very best aspects. You’ll trace the footsteps of the great polar explorers, setting off from Cape Horn at the very bottom of South America, before crossing the Drake Passage to this northernmost region of the White Continent. Setting foot on the vast wilderness of Antarctica is one of travel’s most exhilarating experiences — there’s nowhere quite like the wild extremes of the seventh continent. You’ll experience the pristine beauty of this untamed landscape, witness icebergs calving dramatically into the ocean, and spot some of nature’s most spectacular wildlife along the Antarctic coastline — from penguins and seals to humpback whales and orcas. But Mother Nature is just part of the experience. With activities including polar swims and sea kayaking thrown in, too, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Departing 20 February 2019, the winner will join Intrepid Travel’s Discover Antarctica tour and receive return tickets from their nearest international airport. The trip includes nine breakfasts, eight lunches and nine evening meals on board the expedition cruise ship, MV Hondius. The winner will also be able to add some extra adventure to their trip with optional excursions such as kayaking and ice camping — but book early, as these fill up quickly. intrepidtravel.com
