Photography in Focus
A trip of a lifetime is the perfect opportunity to capture memories to last a lifetime, which is why A&K offers a departure focused on photography. The January 5, 2014, departure is ideal for photographers, being perfectly timed to observe penguin rookeries on South Georgia and Antarctica at their most active. Professional wildlife and landscape photographer and A&K photography coach Richard Harker is on board on both journeys to provide hands-on tips and lectures on making the best of your journey.
Antarctica is the world's greatest living classroom, a magical place for children of all ages. An A&K Family Holiday to Antarctica (December 21, 2013) introduces children to the magnificent wonders of the Seventh Continent with specially planned activities through the Young Explorers program, led by dedicated children’s activity coordinators. Throughout the journey, in addition to regular sightseeing, children enjoy activities carefully designed to educate as much as entertain, including dissecting a squid alongside an expert, knot-making lessons and a fishery tour. 'Le Boreal' also features plenty of child-friendly amenities, including a Leisure Area with a Nintendo Wii console and games.
Protecting the places we visit has always been a paramount concern for Abercrombie & Kent. A&K Philanthropic Journeys — organized through Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropy — encourage socially and ecologically responsible travel through various conservation initiatives worldwide, helping guests to become actively involved in these efforts.
A key habitat for research into the effects of climate change, Antarctica has been a particular focus for Abercrombie & Kent's philanthropic efforts. Each year, we organize the Climate Change Challenge in Antarctica journey, led by Dr. James McClintock, noted Antarctic researcher and a long-standing favorite of A&K's Antarctica programs. The highlight of a Philanthropic Journey to Antarctica (December 11, 2013) is the chance to visit the Palmer Research Station (conditions permitting) in order to directly contribute scientific equipment used for climate change research reversing the effects of global warming.
