The Alumni Travel Study program from Williams College spent 14 days on a tour exploring Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the islands of the Antarctic Peninsula. For nine nights, the group cruised to Wiencke Island, Petermann Island, Deception Island and Half Moon Island.
“Travelers on this exciting expedition to Antarctica enjoyed excellent weather, abundant wildlife, spectacular icebergs and glacier-lined channels. Our group was accompanied by world-renowned marine biologist and Williams professor Jim Carlton, who contributed rich educational context through field commentary and shipboard lectures. There was even a mild crossing through the storied Drake Passage. What more could you ask for?”
