Last month, our very own advisor, Cynthia Schultz, journeyed to Antarctica aboard the Viking Expedition Ship, Polaris. Her one-in-a-lifetime experience is described below:
Step off the shore at the southernmost city of our world and make way through the convergence of 3 of the mightiest oceans-Atlantic, Pacific and Southern, through an never ending alley of serene floating blue icebergs to step onto one of the most magnificent places on earth—the seventh continent of Antarctica.
It is a place where tranquility and peace easily harmonize with the raw elements of nature, crystal-white snow, blue icebergs, and glaciers as far as your sight and dreams can take you. The waters are teeming with frolicking penguins, the blows of whales, and seals as the Antarctic wandering albatross, petrels and skuas soar above unmoved by our presence.
The new state-of the art Viking Expedition Ship beckons the heart of every explorer to journey to the ends of the earth and follow the winds and currents as it navigates by the most stunning iceberg formations to magical places tucked away and protected by the most majestic glaciers and ice mountains as an experienced expedition teams and scientists that leads you to discover places and scenery only experienced by few in a way only translatable by your own vision and imagination.
End your days of explorations by dipping into the warm pool, steam room, or sauna or catching up on your favorite book in the library, hanging out with the expedition team at Expedition Central or in the onboard lab with the knowledgeable scientists, daydreaming while enjoying your favorite beverage in the Explorer’s lounge, all before enjoying a sumptuous meal in one of 3 beautiful and scenic dining venues.
