An Expedition to Remember

Desperate to exit the city to a dream-like scape that is once-in-a-lifetime experience? Tap the explorer in you as you make your way to Antarctica. This is a journey like none other, far from the madding crowds as you travel to a scenic wonder that is truly the last tract of uninhabited land on earth. February is the when the chicks are fledging and learning to swim in the shallows. This month is also known for whale spotting as all migrating pods have now made it down to Antarctica's rich waters. Embark on not just any ship but a well equipped polar vessel that ensures you can reach extreme corners of the Antarctica Continent where the bigger ship struggles to.  “What an adventure it was! Steeped in the legacy of the Polar exploration pioneers and rich in the wildness of a place far removed from the ravages of humans. It’s the last truly wild and, mostly, pristine continent, untouched by mankind and once I have let it into my heart, it will undoubtedly summon me back again and again.” - Sumitra Senapaty (founder of WOW Club).

    Named after the renowned explorer, Sir Francis Drake, who sailed these waters in 1578, the Drake Passage also marks the Antarctic Convergence, a biological barrier where cold polar water sinks beneath the warmer northern waters. The ship's open bridge policy allows you to join the officers on the bridge and learn about navigation, watch for whales, and enjoy the view. This first view in itself will leave you mesmerized, LITERALLY!

    The first sightings of icebergs and snow-capped mountains indicate that we have reached the South Shetland Islands, a group of twenty islands and islets.

Customized Trip
  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • Why don't you include flights in the Package cost?

    Since our wanderers are located a variety of locations in India and outside India - it is impossible to include flights in the trip cost.
