When the BBC & Discovery Channel decided to explore Antarctica for their popular Frozen Planet series, they turned to Quark Expeditions. No other travel company does only polar travel and features more polar scientists, historians and biologists on its trips. Our Expedition Leaders know these regions -- in fact two of them are Nobel Prize Winners. Antarctica was voted one of the 'World's Top Destinations' of 2012 by CNN and the New York Times. As anyone who has visited will tell you, it's a special place not easily forgotten. There's never been a better time to take that trip of a lifetime.
