You chose a/an Onto the Antarctic Ice experience. How was that experience?

It live up to our expectations. The trip was the right choice as the activities were perfect for our needs. I would highly recommend for those that would like to feel what Antarctica is about. The only weakness was the ship's operator did not have enough souvenir to purchase

If Swoop arranged some of your travel before/after your voyage. How did we do?

Not applicble

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

Zodiac landings were coooool!! Expedition crew and leader were very professional and always place safety first!! The iceberg tour was amazing!!! The wildlife was so inspiring. It made me realize more how global warming impacts their survival. The best part was being in close encounter with the penguin and able to observe them in their naturl habitat!!

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

Keep an open mind and follow the instructions of the expedition crew and read the FAQ on SWOOP on What to wear and bring!!
