Postcards From Antarctica
Shrouded in mystery and ice, Antarctica is a realm of unparalleled beauty and scientific intrigue. Stepping foot on its pristine shores is like entering another world, one where towering glaciers, curious penguins, and an ethereal silence surround you.
As our Antarctica Group inches closer to departure in February 2024, we hear from those that have experienced the captivating beauty first hand. Ponant Expedition Manager, Jorge, writes to us about the adventure of a lifetime. David, a wonderful client of Emma Whiting Travel shares extraordinary photographs from his personal voyage earlier this year. Our travel designer Karla reflects on her priceless memories, and Santo, group host for the upcoming departure welcomes you to this very unique opportunity.
We are thrilled to offer two final cabins aboard Ponant’s luxury expedition ship, Le Lyrial as part of this Emma Whiting Travel departure. Contact one of our travel designers to make it yours!
Postcard from Jorge, Expedition Manager, Ponant
“Being an Expedition Leader on board Ponant Yachts and Cruises, exploring the Antarctic Peninsula, is an unparalleled privilege. Guiding intrepid travellers through the untouched beauty of icebergs, glaciers, and wildlife is a profound experience; sharing in their wonder as they encounter penguins and whales up close is incredibly rewarding.
Ponant’s commitment to sustainability and scientific research aligns with my passion for preserving this delicate ecosystem. Leading expeditions in this pristine and remote wilderness is a journey of discovery, education, and inspiration, creating memories that last a lifetime for both guests and myself.
The upcoming group departure with Emma Whiting Travel is the journey of a lifetime to one of the world’s last frontiers. Embark on this unforgettable odyssey and let the frozen wonders of Antarctica leave an indelible mark on your soul. Discover the beauty, embrace the wilderness, and become a steward of this fragile ecosystem as you travel responsibly with Ponant Yachts and Cruises. Your adventure awaits and I cannot wait to greet you in Antarctica!”
