What travelers are say about their trips to the South Shetland Islands

Everyone Should Go To Antarctica!!
05/09/2013 by 2-time traveler Jenny H.
This tour was the best experience of my life. The tour length was perfect, getting a quick taste of Buenos Aries and the city of Ushuaia was an excellent way to start and end the tour. I enjoyed my time and meals in both these cities and really fell in love with Ushuaia...

Best Adventure Ever!!!
02/06/2018 by 10-time traveler Anthony R.
I have traveled to many places in the world, but this expedition to Antarctica has topped them all !!! An amazing experience of exploring the White Continent with a distinguished, qualified group of experienced and educated biologists, scientists, and the crew of the MV Ushuaia...
