A group of UK agents has recently returned from the trip of a lifetime to Antarctica with AE Expeditions (part of Aurora Expeditions). The lucky agents from Polar Routes, Distinctive Americas, Cruise Select, Travelwise, Arcturus and Aqua-Firma experienced AE Expeditions’ Antarctic Explorer Express itinerary from 10-18 February,  onboard the company’s new, purpose-built vessel, the Sylvia Earle.

The nine-day voyage offered an action-packed time in the Antarctic Peninsula, filled with wildlife encounters including penguin, whale and seal sightings, Zodiac excursions exploring rugged coastlines and witnessing majestic icebergs. Some of the agents also took part in AE Expeditions’ adventure activity programs, including snorkelling and sea kayaking.

“It was fantastic to be able to welcome these top performing agents onboard for an unforgettable adventure to Antarctica,”

“We hope they disembarked having a deeper understanding of the AE Expeditions difference, with our small ships, relaxed atmosphere and focus on adventure and immersion in some of the world’s wildest places,” commented Andy Tait, Senior Business Development Manager at AE Expeditions, who hosted the group.

AE Expeditions travels to Antarctica from October through to April. The company offers immersive, small-ship expeditions with a maximum of 132 passengers on each of their two ships, the Greg Mortimer and the Sylvia Earle. With a focus on exploration, discovery and respectful travel they journey to the world’s wildest and most remarkable destinations, including Antarctica, the Arctic, Costa Rica, Panama, Patagonia and Scotland.

The small-ship expedition operator experienced 53% growth out of the UK and Ireland last year.
