Organising the Friends of SPRI Shackleton Voyage in 2014, has been the most exciting experience for us to date. We are delighted to organise the Shackleton Centenary Voyage 2015 which will begin the 21st November 2015 with the commemoration of the sinking of the Endurance 100 years earlier.

Ice Tracks Destinations
Nothing prepares you for heart-stopping pristine beauty of Antarctica. Sight, sound and yes smell of the penguin colonies! Icescapes, ice cliffs, ice bergs of cobalt blue that dwarf everything in their midst. Soaring albatross and swooping petrels, fluking whales, bobbing seals and one ton belching elephant seals! Sunsets and sunrises separated by crimson-streaked skies. It can only be described as a paradise in ice.
- Arctic Watching a polar bear lumbering across the ice, ever weary of its next meal, possibly a ringed sea, is a sighting that remains with you forever. The Arctic offers a plethora of wildlife, towering cliffs of nesting birds, bellowing walruses with one meter tusks, the strange and superbly insulated muskox, exquisite flowers of the frozen tundra and of course a fascinating insight into Inuit life.
- Argentina & Chile From the unfenced expanse of the Pampas in Argentina and the highest, driest desert on Earth in Chile; from the rolling vineyards at the footsteps of the Andes to the turquoise waters and snow-capped volcanoes of the Lake District and the stark silhouette of the Andes and windswept remoteness of Southern Patagonia, Argentina and Chile never cease to amaze those who venture to discover and experience its territory.
We are struggling for words to describe what an amazing adventure we have had and all thanks to you at Ice Tracks. The Iguazu Falls, Puerto Bemberg and Del Socorro were brilliant for the wildlife and scenery, but we topped that with South Georgia and setting foot on The Peninsula was the icing on the cake.
Well done Ice Tracks, we cannot thank you enough and are looking forward to our next adventure with you.
Thank you for your patience with our 'little concerns’. Thank you for organising this trip for us. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share such a magnificent journey with you. Thank you for being yourself, you have opened our eyes.
Tim and Jan travelled ith Ice Tracks for the third time to Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica on the Shackleton Centenary Voyage in November 2014.

When I feel my blood pressure rise or I start thinking that I’m getting stressed at work I just think of the beautiful, pristine, quiet wonderland that we had the privilege of visiting. It works. What a wonderful experience, I’m so happy that we were able to go with such a lovely group of people. Rob and I look forward to meeting up with you again one day soon.

Just returned from my second trip with Ice Tracks this time to the Arctic and the Svalbard archipelago and once again it was a wonderful journey. Again, I was most impressed with the personal involvement of both Angie and Caro and their friendly, professional approach and the way in which they strive and ensure that all their charges are looked after in detail. Ice Tracks continues to provide unique encounters with the most beautiful and extraordinary places. I have much pleasure in highly recommending Ice Tracks to anyone seeking a special journey, very well planned and organised in a friendly and convivial atmosphere that will remain incomparable lifetime experiences.

Will and I would like to thank you both for the huge organisational input you provided to create the unique expedition from which we have just returned. All aspects of the trip touched me. I was fascinated to see and understand the work undertaken by the Endurance scientists during the 4 weeks in December 1914 on South Georgia, and how the Grytviken museum embraced that. Your Ice Tracks arrangements coupled with the One Ocean team commitment provided a full on 20 days adventure at sea. Well done and thank you so much.

A big ‘thank you!’ to my fellow Ice Trackers who each made a once-in-a-lifetime voyage so memorable. You all contributed to a first adventure holiday experience that will be impossible to match. Thanks for sharing it with me.

Just a small thank you for a most amazing year shared with youselves.
You have opened our eyes to many things we did not think we would ever see and we have enjoyed every minute along the way and all within just 12 months. But, having been to incredible places we now know that there is so much more that we really must visit so lets keep on planning!
Thank you both for your very kind and warming friendship and we look forward to more travel in the new year.
Tim and Jan Burr – UK
Yes we were an EXCEPTIONAL group and yes we were in PARADISE but Ice Tracks Expeditions made it all happen. The organization, the personal care, interest, love and passion that you surrounded us with was really something. I would recommend Ice Tracks a million times over.

Susanne and I are very happy to have spent 3 weeks with Ice Tracks excellent management during the Shackleton Centenary Voyage. Antarctica is still alive in our spirit even though our bodies are at home. We will forever remember our journey, the beautiful landscapes and the kind staff of the Akademik Sergey Vavilov as well as the cultural expressions of Argentina and the company of our fellow travellers.
Many thanks to Ice Tracks, to Caro and Angie, for the best journey of our life!
Manfred and Susanne Gehmeyr – Germany
I had always wanted to go to Antarctica & when added with the unique Shackleton Centenary Memorial expedition, it was the most AMAZING trip. Being on ship was like being in a big house party, meeting fellow passengers, so interesting, friendly & with great camaraderie sharing in an unforgettable life experience. I feel I have made many friends & I felt totally confident travelling on my own as Ice -Tracks look after you as family, so much so I'm now going North with them in July to the Arctic!

I just want to say the most enormous THANK YOU for putting together a trip that none of us will ever forget, and I know I speak for Spencer too, and everyone else I came across. You took such infinite trouble to make the trip interesting and packed with activity and action, and I think many new friendships were forged.
