Join us on this once-in-a lifetime journey to Antarctica with one of Australia’s greats, Kurt Fearnley AO, as our special guest.
Three times Paralympic gold medalist and the holder of a plethora of other international medals and achievements, including Gold at the recent Commonwealth Games in Australia, and succesfully crawling the Kokoda Track, Kurt truly knows what it feels like to be on top of the world.
Now, on this unique fundraising journey, Kurt will travel to the incredible beauty found at the end of the earth, on a quest to raise funds supporting education for people with disabilities, living marginalised areas. Antarctica is a place where no society exists, where barriers don’t box people in and being is all that matters. It is the perfect stage to springboard awareness and support for the abilities of people with disabilities.
“My education instilled in me the value of expectation. Expectation which I treasure to this day. When travelling internationally, I’ve seen a life without expectation and without education and that can be more disabling than any disability. I hope to play a small part to increase the participation of people with disabilities in marginalised communities around the world. And I look forward to you joining me win that journey.” Kurt Fearnley.
Departing from Ushuaia, this unique and exclusive fundraising journey will cross the formidable Drake Passage before spending time engulfed in the serene and ethereal surroundings of the Antarctic Peninsula, where silence is so profound you will hear your neck creak as you take in the majestic vistas of this ‘otherworldly’ locale.
To be a part of this exciting fundraiser all you need do is book and travel on the journey, proceeds from berth sales will be donated to the MAD project where, working directly with Kurt Fearnley, the funds will reach the Kurt Fearnley Centre which operates in the Ruben Centre in Nairobi providing education programs for people with disabilities in marginalised locations.
There will also be money-can’t-buy auction items up for grabs at the end of trip celebration, with proceeds also donated to the cause.
So, if travel with purpose ticks a box, if experiencing this planet’s last frontier is something you have always wanted to do then join us on this exclusive cruise and experience a journey you will never forget in the company of true greatness.
While crossing the Drake Passage, you will have the chance to spot a wide range of wildlife like dolphins, whales and orcas, as well as seabirds such as mighty Albatross following the ship.
In just under two weeks, you will experience the highlights of northern Antarctica: the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.
Ushuaia, the southernmost city of the world, is also a highlight in itself as it is located in the dramatic landscape of Tierra del Fuego.
The itinerary schedules four days to explore the Antarctic Peninsula which is famed for its majestic mountains, glaciers, calm waters and abundant wildlife.
You will visit famous sites such as Deception Island, the Lemaire Channel, Paradise Bay and Neko Harbour.
