Cathy and Geoff Michel – UK
Many thanks to Ice Tracks for organising a truly memorable trip to the Galapagos. The local guide, Juan, was outstanding and the environment and wildlife were incredible. The Beluga was a splendid little boat to travel on with such a small number of passengers and enabled us to access a large number of places and activities. We had a wonderful time overall both on the Galapagos and in Quito and can’t thank the Ice Tracks team enough, especially Caro and Angie who were on board with us.

Brenda and Henri Lombard – South Africa
When we asked for a trip to the Galapagos, Ice Tracks rose to the occasion and provided a great itinerary which included the Rain Forests of Ecuador. We would not trade this experience for anything in the world! The scenery, the animals, the birds, the fish and the reptile life was astonishingly beautiful and straight from a David Attenborough film. The crystal clear azure waters of the Galapagos also allowed us to become quite proficient snorkelers. Keep up your amazing team work.

Shona Walton & Adrian Berry – England
This Antarctic experience was made unique for us by Angie’s arrangements to perform our marriage ceremony. Caro’s attention to detail, knowledge of the region, and her creative interpretation of our wishes made the Chilean self-drive part of the expedition extremely smooth and enjoyable. The travel arrangements went like clockwork and the tips contributed to an exciting, varied but hassle-free independent experience.
Shona and Adrian travelled with us to the Antarctic Circle Quest with a self drive extension to Chile in January 2016.
Tim & Jan Burr – England
Once again on our 4th trip with Ice Tracks we have exceeded all of our expectations. Peru and Machu Picchu were amazing, Titilaka Lodge was a very special haven, Sacha Lodge and the Napo River an incredible experience in the jungle and the Galapagos Islands close up wildlife topped everything. We cannot thank Ice Tracks enough for transporting us to parts of the world we would only normally see on television. Care and attention for our comfort & safety throughout the trip was brilliant.

Venkitachalam Chandran – India
A very big thank you to the entire Ice Tracks team for organizing such an unbelievable trip. Right from request for Visa documents, travel information, tracking the flight arrangements, the pickups and drops to the expedition itself went like clockwork. Your attention to detail to ensure that every member of your team was well looked after was immaculate. All the staff on the ship spared no efforts to make sure of the safety and comfort of everyone and put together such a wonderful expedition. Once again thank you Caro, Angie and Cris for making a dream vacation come true.
Antonia Chambers – United States
Thank you for providing me with the experience of a lifetime. I had wanted to go to Antarctrica since I was a child, but thought only explorers or scientists could go. You have made a very special dream come true for me, and I appreciate it very much. Thanks also for your very special touches. The church service was extremely moving, the tolling of the bell, the procession with a wreath to the grave, made me feel like I had stepped back in time, to when Shackleton’s funeral was held there.
Antonia travelled with us to Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica on the Shackleton Centenary Voyage in November 2015.
Christine Duthie – England
I just want to say a very big “thank you” to all of you for being so caring and attentive. Right from the start when I asked if you could help me to make a trip to Iguazu, everything went smoothly. On arrival in Ushuaia, I couldn’t believe the fabulous hotel we stayed in with such a beautiful setting and the commemorative dinner on the first evening which was so special and which gave all the Ice Trackers a chance to meet. The whole trip was excellent and the Ice Tracks contribution added another dimension and really made people think about Shackleton and his comrades and what they must have gone through a century ago.

Anne Phillips – England
All the staff on the ship, without exception, were friendly, helpful and nothing was too much trouble. A HUGE thank you must go to Angie Butler and Caro for their kindness and enthusiasm. Without their unstinting assistance I could not have coped with some of the more adventurous activities provided. Definitely the holiday of a lifetime.
Reena Shah – England
The whole trip was simply outstanding and far exceeded all my expectations. They say dreams don’t come true but Angie, Caro and Cris together with the whole team worked their magic and fulfilled many dreams for me. Thank you and I will be back!!

Barbara Rae – England
Inspired by her namesake Arctic explorer John Rae, Barbara, Royal Academician and one of the country’s leading contemporary artists, joined Ice Tracks on a Northwest Passage odyssey as research for further extraordinary works.
“This was an amazing journey. Expeditions to wild places to encounter traces of history and catch a glimpse of the animals and birds who inhabit this sometimes inhospitable habitat. Seeing the polar bears was really special. I met people with so many specialist interests and have made friends that I will definitely meet again. The team worked very hard to fulfil peoples expectations and were very professional”.
Alan Tritton – UK
My son Guy and I spent some 12 days in the Arctic on board the Russian ship Akademik Sergey Vavilov as customers of Ice Tracks Expeditions. This trip was organised for us by Angie Butler, whom I had met at a Conference on South Georgia organised by the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge. It was all astonishingly well-organised and everything that could be done for us was done – particularly for me bearing in mind my age. Both the Russian Crew and the Cruise Staff could not have been more helpful – in every sense of that word – and everybody went out of their way to ensure that everything went well, which it did. For me, the trip was a nostalgic one – for my son an eye-opener to the pristine beauty of the Arctic. My/our particular thanks go out to Angie Butler, who could not have been more considerate and helpful on this most enjoyable trip.

Guy Tritton – UK
From start to finish, Ice Tracks and Angie Butler made sure that my father and I were looked after as if we were family (and there’s quite a few of them in Angie’s family). The trip was amazing with kayaking in the midnight sun amongst seals and walruses the die-for memory. We also saw polar bears, whales (including 2 blue whales) and millions of birds (principally guillemots, Arctic terns and Eider duck). Everyday, there were activities like kayaking, Zodiak (inflatable speedboats) cruising and walking. I even braved the Arctic Ocean in my swimming trunks. The food was excellent and the other clients of a high calibire – intelligent, interesting and humorous. I even found myself in a double kayak with a Nobel Prize winner talking about theoretical economics next to a calving glacier. Now to go to the Antarctic with Ice Tracks and become officially “bipolar”. Thanks Angie for a wonderful trip.

Rosie Needham – UK
I have had the privilege of the opportunity to travel with Ice-Tracks to The Antarctic and The Arctic within 9 months of each other. A dream come true. I love The Polar regions, the uniqueness, beauty, ICE, glaciers , peace, space, nature, wildlife. It has been Life Changing to experience going South & North, I feel I have really achieved a valuable view of our beautiful world. Another dream would be to kayak in The Arctic!!

Anne Greenwood – UK
This was a fantastic expedition holiday which enabled me to explore the artic in a safe way in the company of like minded people. We saw an amazing variety of wild life, including polar bears. I have a photo of a bear with a very red (seal stained) face! The foul weather gear including wellingtons enabled excellent protection when in the zodiacs or on hikes. The ice scenery was out of this world, especially when we went on a cruise in zodiacs up to the edge of an ice shelf. The sea was very calm and all the icebergs and pieces of ice were perfectly reflected in the water in the evening light. Unlike conventional cruises our timetable was often changed eg no hikes if polar bears were sighted.It was good to be organised by nature. No communication with the outside world – peace.

Tim and Jan Burr – UK
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.
