Antarctic Peninsular with M/V Hondius @ Antarctic Peninsula | Antarctica

This tour provides an opportunity to explore the richest part of Antarctica in terms of biodiversity: the peninsular. In this late time of the season – late summer and starting autumn in the Southern hemisphere – you may find in particular many whales, seals, and at least 3 species and many other seabirds. At this LT&C-Study Tour, you will also learn more about the LT&C-supported initiative for an Antarctic ring of marine protected areas. If you join this tour we expect that this will not only be your once-in-a-lifetime wildlife- and wilderness experience but that you return as an ambassador for protecting the seas around Antarctica. For LT&C members this tour is offered for a 20% reduced price. 

The study tour will be performed by emperor penguin member and co-founder of LT&C Oceanwide Expeditions with their new expedition vessel M/V Hondius. You find the detailed itinerary for this voyage on their website.

It is the core of LT&C’s mission to describe, profile and promote so-called LT&C Examples, where the cooperation between conservation and tourism had led to the establishment of protected areas or the support and improvement of their management. In this context visits to these unique areas are a way to make those examples better known, learn from them and identify incentives and tools to replicate or boost them.

In recent years several study tours to the Arctic and Antarctica have been conducted, where the LT&C concept was presented on site. Our Dutch tour-operating partner and LT&C member, Oceanwide Expeditions, has since long time cooperated with conservation organisations and Linking Tourism & Conservation. They also this time made the offer to LT&C to bring an own group of conservation-minded passengers on board the M/V Hondius to experience Antarctic nature and learn about how tourism can support the Antarctic ring of marine protected areas.

If you are interested in this Antarctic study tour, you only need to express your interest to us and let us forward your name and contact to the tour operator and LT&C member Oceanwide Expeditions. You then will be contacted by the tour operator, who will do the booking with you. The official prices of Oceanwide Expeditions you find on their website. LT&C-members can get a discount of 20%, but we expect that you at your return compensate your climate footprint by using the calculator of our competent member in this field, Southpole. You just need to let us know your interest as soon as possible, and you are very welcome to spread the information also to others you know that may be interested in experiencing pristine high Antarctic nature and learn how tourism can support nature conservation.
