Caren Rapp

Polar Travel Adviser

Born in South Africa, I have a BA in English Languages and Literature. I’ve worked at Quark Expeditions for over 2 years, been selling polar expeditions since 1993, and have traveled to many exotic destinations, including Papua New Guinea, the Faeroe Islands and, of course, Antarctica and the Arctic.

What is one of your favorite memories of the polar regions?

In the Antarctic, looking over the ship’s deck and seeing more than 50 whales spouting around the ship, all at once.

What advice would you give someone traveling to the polar regions?

Go with an open mind and no expectations, and you won’t be disappointed.
