They say life begins at 40, so now’s the time to head to Antarctica – the ultimate bucket list destination.

To celebrate Peregrine’s 40th birthday, we are giving you and a friend the chance to WIN the voyage of a lifetime – an 11-day voyage to Antarctica – plus return economy flights to Argentina.

You can live life on the ice and set sail on our Antarctica Explorer (Sea Adventurer) tour. Scan the seas for seals, experience the polar plunge with an invigorating dip in icy waters, or whale watch from the White Continent.

This competition is now closed. Congratulations to Wilfried from QLD who will be heading to Antarctica in February!
