Journey to the End of the Earth: OceanZen Travel's Antarctic Expedition

"Visiting Antarctica is an unparalleled privilege, a rare opportunity to immerse yourself in the most incredible wilderness", says Steph Gabriel, Founder and CEO of OceanZen Travel. "Our expedition was a testament to the spirit of adventure and exploration that drives us to seek out the unknown and immerse ourselves in the wonders of the natural world."

The group of women were mostly Australian, and travelled across the globe to Argentina. From the moment the expedition set sail from the edge of the world known as Ushuaia, Argentina which is the closest point to Antarctica (only two days of sailing), guests found themselves entranced by the breathtaking scenery and abundant wildlife that defines the Antarctic landscape.

The guests witnessed towering icebergs calving into the sea, encountered colonies of playful penguins, all kinds of seal species and marvelled at the majestic sight of whales breaching the surface in a graceful ballet.

"We traded our warm cosy cabins on the ship for a night to go camping amongst the icebergs on land which was absolutely extraordinary". "We slept in 'body bags' that are made for -27 degree temperatures and fell asleep listening to cracking icebergs, whales breathing and penguins calling. It wasn't cold when we went to sleep, but we woke up to -6 degree temperatures in the early hours of the morning", Says Steph Gabriel.

"I believe that travel has the power to transform lives and inspire positive change, I am super passionate about offering a space where women can travel solo in a safe environment which is a huge mission for why I created OceanZen Travel.
