“We pride ourselves in offering the best experiences to our travelers and are delighted to make this exclusive flash sale available to the public,” says Thomas Lennartz, Vice-President, Sales for Quark Expeditions, which recently won four Magellan Awards, including the gold award for Best Overall Cruise Ship (500 passengers or under). “Savings are now possible for trips departing this November, which is a spectacular time to visit Antarctica as snow and ice are pristine, wildlife is abundant and we can offer more adventure options than any other time of year,” continues Lennartz.

The promotion includes the following itineraries:

  • South Georgia and Antarctic Peninsula: Penguin Safari (16 days). This itinerary enables travelers to experience the stunning polar landscape of the Antarctica Peninsula and the abundant wildlife of South Georgia, which is known as “the Galapagos of the South Ocean.” This 16-day trip is the fastest way to see South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula.
