Who we are
Our passion for Antarctica and the Arctic inspired us to start ICE TRACKS EXPEDITIONS. We are dedicated to make Polar Adventure Travel a life-changing experience for our clients. We set out to give you a trip of a lifetime, working with the best operator in the industry, a team of enthusiastic professional staff and a sea faring crew who practically have ice in their veins!
- Shackleton Centenary 2015
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 send you our greetings and thanks for the wonderful trip and the chance to be a small part of history. All the arrangements worked perfectly - full marks Ice Tracks!

The attention to detail and quality of preparation and execution of the voyage by Ice Tracks, along with the combination of people that we had on board and the personal stories that each of them shared, made it feel like an event rather than a trip that I had booked and paid for. The passion, dedication and care that Ice Tracks have for the customer experience really came across in every part of the voyage. I know I have come away with lifelong friends and look forward to having another opportunity to catch up with everyone, hopefully on another voyage somewhere.

That was a truly spectacular three weeks. The amount of effort and time you both put into making sure we were all looked after, and the forethought that went into every single detail, was staggering. All I can say – is wow did it pay off… I have no idea how you kept so many demanding people like us so happy for so long with so many things to deal with and expectations so high – all of which where exceeded – in short, you both have the patience of SAINTS. Every single person I spoke to on the last day on the boat and the day in Buenos Aires agreed that the voyage was the most unique, unforgettable, fabulous journey they had been on. And that is solely thanks to you (and the ice).

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!

Two phrases I often used in my company were: "a business is only as good as the people who work in it" and "we should strive to exceed our customers expectations". Your staff were a credit to you. My partner and I had the trip of a lifetime, so as far as we were concerned you can definitely put a tick in both boxes!
John Rickerby – UK
How do I begin to thank you both for giving me the trip of a lifetime? So amazing in so many ways. All credit to you both for making the Ice Tracks party such fun.
David Clark – UK
As a person who did it the hard way all those years ago, going with Ice Tracks this time was, for me, very rewarding and comfortable indeed. In my humble opinion, I thought the whole experience, tailor made as it was on this most recent voyage, a quite excellent package. I have, therefore, had no hesitation in recommending yourselves to those who have expressed an interest in my recent ‘adventure'!
Tom Lynch – UK
Travelling with such an amazing group of people was a real privilege. Your attention to detail was astonishing. And of course the wonderful 'fireside chats.' What a treat to hear those stories from the descendants. The ground arrangements worked well and we were impressed by the IceTracks organisation of those. Thank you for such personal and friendly service from beginning to end.'
David and Rosemary Wharton – UK
A wonderful and most memorable experience, made all the more special by having the descendants with us. Congratulations on tracking them down and getting them involved, and indeed for all the hard work and effort that you put in both before and during the trip, which was much appreciated and admirably rewarded.
I would certainly recommend Ice Tracks to friends, and will check on what you are offering in the future.
Angela Palmer – UK
Thank you to each one of you for your friendship and for sharing this beautiful part of our planet with us. Guts and Caro do you realise what you have achieved ? It has always been a lifelong dream to visit Antarctica and you have been the catalyst that made it all possible. Your enthusiasm and friendship knows no bounds!.
