Today, Quark Expeditions announced the release of video guides to give travelers an idea of what the polar adventure company has to offer. Available on Quark's website, two new guides include The Expedition Experience video, describing the difference an expedition cruise and a traditional cruise, and The Northwest Passage video, detailing the history of the pursuit of the northern route to Asia.
The Video Guides introduce prospective polar travelers to the regions and people who work there, including Expedition Team Members during a cruise. Polar travelers interested in a trip to South Georgia, an isolated Antarctic island in the South Ocean, can explore the area, featuring an Emperor Penguin rookery. Actor Gordon Pinsent (The Good Shepherd, The Thomas Crown Affair) narrates the guides, directed by David Makepeace.
