Based in Ushuaia, Antarctica Travels is the fruit of Alicia Petiet’s hard work. She was one of the first independent agents to set up shop in Argentina’s southernmost city back in 2000 when she noticed many travelers arriving in Ushuaia looking for a last minute deal who were not being adequately served.

Now, after 15 years, she runs a thriving company with an all female run agency in Ushuaia. Alicia and her team are passioned about Polar regions and are well experienced.

Alicia has personally been on and knows members of the crew on every vessel she represents, even earning herself a coveted spot in the Lonely Planet travel guide as a recommended local agent. She has sailed on fifteen Antarctic expeditions, including visits to the Falklands (Malvinas) and South Georgia Island, the Weddell Sea and the Antarctic Peninsula. In 2010, she completed an expedition around the famous Cape Horn and the Chilean fjords, not to mention two Arctic expeditions to the Canadian Arctic and Svalbard, Norway.

Alicia and her team have helped more than 2000 travelers to get to the White Continent from all over North America, South America, Europe, Australia and Asia, always matching the perfect adventure for each adventurer. The team works hard focusing in having each traveller to get the full experience that only Antarctica has to offer.

Alicia’s attention to customer care is top notch – with 100% client satisfaction always her main goal. Alicia personally sees travelers onto the ship and greets them when they return. Her long term commitment to the industry, her professional integrity, her infectious charm, and her love of working with people have helped her create strong relationships with both expedition companies and also with staff and crew on each ship which makes it easy for her to match you with the best shipboard experience for your travel needs. Her greatest professional reward is always to experience each one of her clients’ bright and happy faces as they walk down the gangway after the expedition of a lifetime.

This is the spirit of Antarctica Travels and how all the team works. The key word is Passion and the way, hard work to make your Polar dream come true!
