In this photo, an Antarctic local carefully navigates some rocks, sea kayakers and a Quark ship in the background. Looks like a perfect day in Antarctica!
There is probably no bigger and more passionate fan of all things Quark Expeditions than our CEO Hans Lagerweij. Fresh from his first experience aboard one of our Antarctic Express voyages, we sat down to chat with Hans about the fly-cruise program and hear him tell the tale of another Quark “first” achievement in Antarctica!
Adventurous Quark Expeditions passengers take on a sloping hike at Deception Island in late February 2013. The Sea Adventurer is anchored below, shrouded in light mist from the water. The day was clear and warm and the view from the top was absolutely spectacular. Many people had to remove their parkas at the top - a great way to get some exercise and work up an appetite for another amazing meal aboard the Sea Adventurer!
