“We will be recommending Quark to anyone and everyone we meet. The guides made us feel like we finally found the types of people we could be forever friends with. It's hard to find such welcoming, genuine, and adventurous spirits like the ones you have on your team. We are sad to leave! As for the shore landings, Orne Harbour was the most beautiful place we've ever stepped foot on. The hike was incredible and the views were breathtaking. The island across from Port Lockroy was kind of a let down and did not need 45 minutes there at all. If Tom wasn't there to chat with, we honestly don't know what we would've done with our time on that island. We have nothing but phenomenal things to say about this trip. What an opportunity that you guys ensured to go above and beyond to make this worth the money and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that we will never forget! Thank you!”

“We explored the Far North, discovering an Arctic world with wonderful new friends and grand daily adventures. We attended lectures, jumped into zodiacs for new shores, walked on the ice pack, learned about northern life and its peoples, and shared vibrant conversations at meals. Hotel staff very hospitable and expedition staff wise and fun. An outstanding adventure was had.”
