Gap Adventures Offers Discount on Early Season Sailings to Antarctica



Travellers save $1000 on select bookings aboard the M/S Expedition.

To celebrate the launch of the upcoming Antarctic sailing season, Gap Adventures, the world's adventure travel leader, announces an early bird sale. Travellers who book on the first two sailings of the Antarctica Classic in-Depth tour, departing November 7 and 18, will receive a $1000 discount.

"We're excited to introduce the new Antarctic cruising season," says Will Bennett, Gap Adventures' director of operations aboard the M/S Expedition. "A visit to Earth's southernmost continent is truly a once in a lifetime experience, filled with many opportunities to see and photograph breathtaking scenery and extraordinary wildlife."

The sale applies to category one to three cabins only. Promo code: early_season_ant_2011_1000.

"The early season saving is one of many examples of our ongoing commitment to lead with service," adds Bennett. "We offer the best value and most affordable pricing in the industry."

The 13-day expedition introduces explorers to the magic of the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula. Arriving in the coldest, driest, and windiest continent is part of the reward for navigating the Drake Passage. Gap Adventures' expert guides and lecturers – including Frank S. Todd, one of the most recognized authorities in the world of penguins – provide knowledge and insights that really bring the nature and history of the region to life, and serve to create an adventure of a lifetime.
