Introducing Expeditions Online

Expeditions Online

After over almost 25 years in the expedition travel industry, Australian polar veteran Stewart Campbell has now launched a new online travel agency, Expeditions Online, focussing exclusively on the small ship expedition cruise industry. It’s stated aim is to offer the widest choice of polar voyages, always-competitive prices and to combine polar expertise, personal service and the convenience of online bookings and payments. All key small ship operators are represented on the site, with vessels such as M/V Plancius, Polar Pioneer, Akademik Ioffe, M/V Ushuaia, Sea Explorer, M/S Expedition, Ocean Nova and many more.

Stewart Campbell. Travelling to Antarctica since 1990.

Stewart was previously manager for the Australian expedition operator Adventure Associates and Swedish Arctic cruise operator, Polar Quest - as well as a former cruise guide and Antarctic expedition leader. He has made over 30 Antarctica expeditions, including numerous trips into the Ross Sea, East Antarctica, Peninsula and Weddell Sea and almost every single sub-Antarctic Island. Among his most memorable landings include seldom-seen Inexpressible Island, where members of Scott’s Northern party overwintered; remote Zavodovskiy Island, active volcano and site of the world’s largest colony of penguins; and landing the entire complement of passengers by helicopter on top of a large tabular iceberg.
