Overall, how was your trip?

The icebergs, wildlife and landscapes were hard to all take in. The Vavilov was the perfect venue in every respect.

In one sentence, what did you think of Antarctica? Did it live up to your expectations?

It was an incredible experience. Antarctica is unlike any place I have ever visited, totally unspoiled by human influence aside from the few research stations dotted here and there. The raw beauty and remoteness is impossible to describe.

Would you visit again?


How was the service that Swoop provided?

I could not have asked for better service than SWOOP provided. You answered all my questions and concerns and provided me with all trip details and requirements.

How were your experiences on the zodiac excursions and shore landings?

The excursions were very well planned and executed. They were the "hands-on" part of the trip and allowed everyone to experience the wildlife and landscapes up-close.

Do you have any tips or advice for other people planning a trip to Antarctica?

Yes, use SWOOP to plan the trip!

Anything else? Tell us anything you’d like to share that we forgot to ask! It’s ok to leave this empty too :-)

We visited Patagonia prior to leaving for the Falklands on the 20th. I would like to visit te Arctic but my wife does not share my enthusiasm.
