Young Pioneer Tours

YPT Newsletter 19th January 2024

Dear Pioneers,

In 2024 we have three extraordinary expeditions planned for the latter half of the year that are now open for early bookings. These three tours are without a doubt our most anticipated for this year and places are already going fast for all of them.

From the enormous white wilderness of vast elemental forces that is Antarctica to Venezuela which features some of the most stunning landscapes and fascinating contemporary history in South America and finally the mighty Arctic North of Svalbard soaked in Soviet lore, there is something for everyone with these three trips.

In this uncertain climate for travel, we have made securing your spots on any of the below 2024 tours incredibly easy for your peace of mind and confidence in knowing that if the trip cannot go ahead due to COVID-19 travel-related restrictions, your money and deposit is safe with us. Stay tuned for our YPT newsletter updates.

Now without further ado, let’s dig into these three epic 2024 tours open for early booking below!

Antarctica Frozen Continent Expedition

December 15th, 2024 – December 24th, 2024

It seems like an age since we last went to Antarctica, and so in 2024 YPT will take you back to the frozen continent!

Our 10-day voyage will take us through the Beagle Channel and the Drake Passage toward the Antarctic Convergence, where the Antarctic begins. We’ll see the Melchior Islands and sail through the Schollaert Channel, between Brabant and Anvers Islands. While traversing the Neumayer Channel, we can visit the former British research station at Port Lockroy. In Wilhelmina Bay, we will spot the wreck of the Guvernøren, a burned-out wreckage of a whaling ship that caught fire in 1915.

This trip will also provide once in a lifetime opportunities to spot and photograph extremely rare wildlife native to the Antarctic region. A travel photographer’s dream!

Tour Highlights

  • Visit the British research station at Port Lockroy and spot the wreck of the Guvernøren, a burned-out wreckage of a whaling ship that caught fire in 1915.
  • Go kayaking in what is, truly, the World’s last frontier.
  • See the incredible wildlife of Antarctica from seals to penguins going by whales

There are a few very limited spots left on our Antarctica tour with a 300 dollar deposit, all that is required to secure your spot on a voyage to our planets final frontier.
