Kensington Tours is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the South Pole on December 14 by offering travelers a new portfolio of exclusive itineraries to Antarctica. Travelers can enjoy kite skiing, mountain climbing and ice caving, or more leisurely pursuits like scenic champagne picnics, walks to see playful Adelie penguins, visits to science stations or a flight to a 12,000 strong Emperor penguin colony, Kensington Antarctica.

The Eight-Day Antarctica and Emperor Penguins package departing November 22 and November 30, starts at $56,300 per person. The traveler’s days include a hike across ice caves, a flight by DC3 to visit the largest Emperor Penguin colony, a mini-polar expedition hauling a sledge and sleeping overnight on the ice, mountain climbing, skiing, abseiling, and visits to the nearby Russian and Indian research stations.

CEO Jeff Willner said, “Guests at Kensington Antarctica will witness the same otherworldly polar landscapes that these courageous explorers and their expedition teams set their eyes on one hundred years ago.”
