Peregrine Adventures has launched a line-up of new Antarctic expeditions set for release in 2020 that the company says will benefit travellers and the environment, all at a relatively affordable price.
With visits to one of the most fragile ecosystems on the planet, being eco-conscious as a visitor and planner is becoming increasingly important.
As a company, Peregrine carbon offsets all land trips, adventure cruises and polar expeditions, and these new voyages will see the company double its carbon offsets on behalf of customers.
“We want the journey to Antarctica to be life-changing, not earth-changing,” said Brett Mitchell, Peregrine Adventures’ regional director for the Asia Pacific.
One of the company’s flagship tours set to open in 2020 will include an 11-day Christmas tour of Antarctica, offering guests the chance to celebrate the holiday season penguin, seal and whale-spotting.
Peregrine Adventures’ Antarctica expeditions aboard the Ocean Endeavour will continue the company’s focus on sustainable and experiential style of cruising, offering kayaking, photography masterclasses, onboard yoga and massages during their flagship Antarctic trip.
“Antarctica reminds its visitors of just how small our planet is and how interconnected we are,” Mitchell said.
“Our travellers leave inspired to do more to protect the environment and we want to play our part by doubling our carbon offsets on each voyage.
“We want to ensure that not only do we protect the environment, we inspire travellers as well, and these trips will emphasise personal reflection and offer yoga on the ship, where travellers can completely switch off in this pristine destination.”
Mitchell said the Peregrine charters commencing in October next year will make the polar experience more accessible than ever with a lead-in price of $7090.
“Experiencing Antarctica is one of the greatest travel experiences and it shouldn’t be exclusively for the wealthy,” he said.
