EVENT DESCRIPTION

After a successful launch in the International Year of Sustainable Tourism Development in March 2017, Ibex Expeditions has pledged to promote Antarctica as a Destination, but to do it responsibly and get all participants to become Ambassadors of the movement by creating awareness. Being inspired by Robert Swan's 2041 initiative, we too are trying to do our bit and this will be taken forward under an initiative called #Antarcticamatters .One of our Knights, Rajiv Luthra has promised pro bono support through his Law firm Luthra Law Offices until the Antarctica Treaty is renegotiated in 2048. SKAL, PATA, UNWTO, WTTC & ESOI sent Ibex letters of support to Ibex Expeditions for the Antarctica initiative. Responsible citizens from different walks of life who undertook the journey which was led by explorer and mountaineer, Mandip Singh Soin, took a pledge to protect Antarctica,by holding a bottle of melted ice of Antarctica,in the presence of Jonathan Shackleton, cousin of the famous Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. 2018 AntarcticaMatters journey will be led by an Ibex Explorer in Residence, Himali Singh Soin in February - March 2018. The route will flow through the most scenic bays and channels of the Antarctica Peninsula with Zodiac boat based closeups of penguin rookeries, seal wallows, bird colonies and whale feeding areas as well as sites of historic and scientific interest. Please join us and help spread awareness to friends and family about this pristine part of planet Earth. Special discounts are being offered by Ibex Expeditions.
