About Us

We are your ‘local' Antarctic specialists, also focusing in the Arctic and Galapagos our passion driven team will do anything and everything to make your Polar dream a reality!

Antarctica Travels was founded by Alicia Petiet some 22 years ago. She was the first independent agent in Ushuaia back in 2000 to sell Antarctic voyages. Back then she noticed travellers arriving in Ushuaia looking for a last minute Antarctic departure were not being adequately served. Now, after more than 2 decades, Antarctica Travels is a thriving company run by an all female team led by Carolina, a seasoned expedition guide and Polar Region specialist with more than 25 years of solid experience in the Travel Industry.
The Antarctica Travels’ team takes pride in being the only Polar Travel Specialist to have been on board all vessels sailing in high latitudes, to both the Arctic and Antarctic oceans. Amongst Alicia, Caro and the team we completed well over 300 voyages and we personally know members of the expedition staff on board every vessel we represent.
Antarctica Travels has helped more than 3,000 travellers from all corners of the world to reach their Polar dreamed destination, always matching the perfect adventure and budget for each one of our clients. Our team main focus to customer care is top notch – offering 100% client satisfaction. 
The spirit of Antarctica Travels is the driven passion and hard work we put in making your Polar dream come true!
