Flight of Fancy podcast: What is the future of travel in Antarctica?

It's impossible to be unaffected by Antarctica. There's something mystical about this vast continent, something primal, something that taps you straight in to the spirit of explorers and adventurers and seekers of the unique.

Antarctica is landscapes, soaring and amazing. It's iceberg fields, these perfect floating works of art. It's glaciers crashing into the cold sea. It's snowy peaks and glassy bays. Antarctica is wildlife too: endless colonies of penguins, pods of whales, soaring seabirds and wallowing seals. And it's life on board your cruise vessel, life that can be comfortable or luxurious, but always interesting, always part of the adventure.

There's nothing and nowhere quite like Antarctica. And now, it's opening up once again. The chance to visit will return. And what will that hold?

On this episode of Flight of Fancy I'm joined by Antarctic expedition leader David McGonigal, and actor, author and TV personality Andrew Daddo, to take you on a journey to one of the world's most isolated, most untouched, most amazing destinations. We're going to discuss Antarctic exploration in the post-pandemic world, how to get there, who to go with, what's changing, what's staying the same, and how to get the best out of your journey.
