All Arctic & Antarctica


"When it is time to die, let us not discover that we never lived"
Henry David Thoreau

Antarctica is simply the remotest destination on Earth. Often described as the White Continent, I like to characterize it as the ‘Last Travel Frontier’. The Arctic is far more than polar bears and walruses. Antarctica and The Arctic simply have no equal for the adventurer who admires inimitable landscapes and who quests for the chance to closely observe wildlife. Both destinations are sheer bliss for the traveler who desires a trip full of adventure, excitement and discovery.
