Extreme Adventures

Adventure travellers often view the Arctic and Antarctica as two places on their must see list- and not just adventure travellers, but also photographers and wildlife lovers.

There are a number of companies offering adventure travel- for expedition cruises to the Antarctica and the Arctic, three of the best known companies specialising in these destinations are One Ocean Expeditions, Quark ExpeditionsAdventure Canada and GAdventures.  Each offer a range of activities in both the top and bottom of the world, and Adventure Canada as well as GAdventures also offer activities elsewhere.

ioffe_photoI now find myself in the lucky company of other adventurers of heading out on an expedition with One Ocean Expeditions to the Antarctica. Our ice-strengthened vessel leaves on March 16 from Ushuaia at the very tip of South America. We are gone for 10 days- 4 of which we will be crossing to and from South America to the Antarctica.

Here is a copy of our itinerary- just to give you an idea of what we are doing and where we are going- Marine Mammals. Before and after we will be exploring Buenos Aires as well as Ushuaia- the place we leave from at the very southern tip of South America.





Iguazu Falls


psba-buenos-aires-iguazu-_1On the 28th of March, we leave on a week long tour from Buenos Aires- a full day exploring the city with a small group, then fly to Iguazu Falls for a couple more days, and then on to Rio de Janeiro- and there our tour ends and I will be flying home. Here is a link for the tour with Peregrine Adventures-Argentina and Brazil.


Most of the hotels we stay in will have wifi (quality unknown)- the expedition allows us to send and receive emails- I am hoping to post on my blog via email…..Although I may not always have a lot of time to provide updates, please feel free to check this and my Facebook page from time to time.
