Antarctica Travels was founded by Alicia Petiet in 2000, when she realized there was a growing need to provide visitors to Ushuaia with customized, cost-efficient, and flexible ways to explore Antarctica.
Alicia can't stop smiling every time she travels to Antarctic or the Arctic.
Soon after the business started, it became one of the first independent agents specializing in trips throughout the Arctic and Antarctica. With over 18 years of experience in the travel industry, Alicia and her team have utilized their customer-oriented approach to become one of the most well-known agencies in the southern part of Argentina. Their passion for travel as well as their superior knowledge of the Polar region, has allowed them to create personalized experiences tailored to each guest desires.
Alicia herself has traveled on all the vessels she represents, and has close relationships with all the members of the crew operating the tours. She has sailed on eighteen Antarctic Expeditions including visits to the Falklands (Islas Malvinas), South Georgia Island, the Weddell Sea, and the Antarctic Peninsula. This extra knowledge allows her and her team to find the exact trip that’s right for you based on your interests. You can rest assured that she will personally be there to see you off when you begin your adventure, and will be waiting for you as you return to end your trip.
Antarctica Travels has been involved with creating wonderful adventures for over two thousand people from all over the world, including travelers from the US, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. The world’s most famous travel guide, The Lonely Planet, has recognized Antarctica Travels for their expertise in the region.
Alicia is supported by a knowledgeable staff, and it goes without saying that the company’s top seller, Lorena Berutti (who has a degree in Tourism and excellent technical knowledge about tourism and related fields), is a key factor on establishing the costumer-orientated policy that identifies Antarctica Travels. Besides having more than ten years experience in selling both Arctic and Antarctic voyages, Lorena is always ready to help all costumers find their perfect trip while making sure no questions goes unanswered. She also has sailed on multiple Polar expeditions, including the Antarctic Peninsula, the Weddell Sea, Falklands (Malvinas), South Georgia, the Arctic and the mythic Cape Horn.
