Tour Description

Experience the magic of the wildest, most isolated continent on the planet, travelling alongside two special guests - history-making polar expeditioner Professor Mike Stroud OBE and former NZ Prime Minister Rt Hon Sir John Key.

Best known for his record-breaking expeditions with Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Professor Mike Stroud OBE is a true modern-day explorer, with incredible tales to tell from his adventures in some of the most inhospitable and remote places on the planet.

With a driving passion for being at the leading edge of business, Rt Hon Sir John Key carved out a successful career in investment banking, before returning to NZ and leading the country from 2008 to 2016. Sir John joins this VIP Antarctica Cruise for his third trip to the great white continent.

Join our two special guests for this exclusive VIP cruise, venturing to the Antarctic Peninsula and South Shetland Islands aboard brand-new luxury vessel, the Ocean Albatros. Explore the other-worldly landscape of towering icebergs, curious penguins, and unmatched serenity that simply cannot be exaggerated.

“A travel agent today needs to have the knowledge and maturity to help one in different cities and locations. Quay Travel has certainly done that for me... offering excellent advice on such diverse locations as the Maldives to downtown New York! Having travelled extensively for 35 years on business and for pleasure I am more than happy with Quay Travel’s levels of service and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to other travellers.”
