The luxury travel company, Abercrombie and Kent, has always been a favourite of our readers. This year, A&K has been voted the Best Tour Operator because of its excellent services, personalised itineraries, and inspiring experiences.

This year, they have another great offering that you won’t be able to resist.

Say goodbye to 2016 with a voyage of a lifetime! We’re not just saying it—Antarctica really is one of those places that you experience just once in your life and never forget about. This December, Abercrombie and Kent (A&K) is planning to take you and your family on this adventurous expedition to world’s most fascinating and virgin continent, and they are offering great discounts too.

AN UNMISSABLE JOURNEY

It’s cold, it’s dry, and it’s absolutely breathtaking. There are not many places in this world that can teach you about our planet as much as Antarctica can. It was the last continent to be discovered and it still remains a mystery—no population other than science research centres; a desert despite snow everywhere; and just one species of warm-blooded animal, the male Emperor penguin.

You can find out so much more from the on-board experts. Throughout the journey, you will get to learn about the continent, marine biology, and climate change through on-board lectures and shore expeditions from a team of award-winning research scientists, habitat conservationists, wildlife photographers and historians. What’s more? Kids can engage in different activities on the ship and on shore. The Young Explorers programme by A&K has two age groups for younger and older children to ensure that every kid gets has fun engaging in age-appropriate activities.

Abercrombie & Kent’s Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands Luxury Expedition Cruise has two departure dates. For the cruise from Dec 13-29, the price has been slashed to US$16,996 for adults and US$9,995 for kids while the second child sails free. The New Year cruise from December 19, 2016 – January 4, 2017 is priced at US$15,995 per person for adults (discounted from US$18,995) and US$9,495 for kids.

These all-inclusive package includes pre- and post-cruise lodging and sightseeing, charter flights, on-board lectures, twice-daily shore excursions, most drinks, and crew and staff gratuities.
