Antarctic Expedition

The history of our planet has lasted billions of years, and the reality of climate change has the power to radically reshape our future. The need for massive action to combat this issue has never been more important. In partnership with Robert Swan, OBE and Barney Swan, we will be journeying South on a special Antarctic expedition to train inspirational participants on up-to-date climate science, sustainability, and leadership skills. The Expedition also equips participants and leaders with the tools to create meaningful change in their communities, institutions, companies, and governments in order to benefit this beautiful planet that we all call home.

Antarctica Expedition with TEP

Antarctica Expedition Robert Swan

Robert Swan & Barney Swan

  • On 11 January 1986, a young Robert Swan was standing at the South Pole after 70 days of skiing 900 miles across Antarctica. Robert had just completed the longest unassisted march in human history.  During this Antarctica expedition, Robert’s eyes and face were severely damaged. When he returned home, he learned that NASA had just discovered a dangerous hole in the ozone layer, which is what contributed to his injuries. 

    While Robert recovered, the moment never escaped him. He went on to start the 2041 Mission, dedicating his life to the preservation of Antarctica and the environment through the promotion of sustainability and conservation.

  • In January 2018, Robert’s son Barney became the first person in history to trek to the South Pole powered entirely by renewable energy. Over the course of this 60-day Antarctica expedition they encountered a continent that was melting beneath their feet. It was here that Robert and Barney knew they needed to increase the effort to protect the planet.

The Mission Heads South!

  • In 2022, we will reunite with Robert Swan & Barney Swan to renew focus on this strategic hotspot of climate change. Aligning our vision and passions, the mission is to use adventure as a vehicle to preserve our planet. It is important to observe the changes that are happening and learn from the continent, so that we can all return home as more effective advocates for this Last Great Wilderness on Earth!

  • The Ship

    The Ocean Atlantic is the perfect vessel for expedition cruising in Antarctic waters! Newly renovated in 2016 and with an international ice class rating of 1B, she is one of the strongest ships operating in Antarctica. Her high maneuverability, shallow draft and strong engines allow for extended voyages into isolated fjords, creating exciting adventures for any Antarctica traveler.

    The ship was built in 1985 and underwent an extensive rebuild in 2010. With a length of 140 meters she has ample space on the multiple decks for several lecture halls, a relaxed restaurant serving 4-star international cuisine, professionally staffed bars and observation platforms.

    All common areas on the Erickson Deck feature large panel windows, enabling passengers to quickly spot passing whales and photographic sights from the comfort of indoor lounges.

    All private cabins are stylish appointed and feature individual bathroom facilities, phone for internal calls, individual temperature controls and TV. Ideal for relaxation, the vessels’ accommodation ranges in size and are designed with either portholes or windows.

    Daily shore landings at penguin rookeries, research stations and other Antarctic wonders are made possible by her fleet of 20 Zodiacs.
