Mumbai/NITN: If exploring the icy continent has been on your travel bucket list, here is an opportunity to fulfil it, especially with international commercial passenger flights now allowed in India.
Presented by Thomas Cook India and SOTC ‘Undiscovered Antarctica’ is for Indian travellers who have been looking forward to a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience and are not hesitating to increase their spending.
Passengers will be taken on-board a 10-day sailing on Ponant’s luxury cruise ship, L’ Austral.
This exceptional trip invites Indians to embark on an expedition that is truly off-the-beaten-track, a voyage to a pristine land of the world’s largest glaciers, icebergs, the awe-inspiring Antarctic whales, penguin colonies and avian species.
Adventure seekers can opt for exciting experiences such as kayaking amidst the icy waters, hiking tours, and more.
One may visit Port Lockroy – home to the southernmost post office in the world, to send loved ones a postcard featuring the Antarctica stamp.
An additional optional tour includes the resort town of Ushuaia, located at the southernmost tip of South America and hence referred to as the “End of the World”.
