CNH Tours - Cultural and Natural Heritage Tours Galapagos

Anyone for Antarctica?
CNH Tours does not offer trips to a destination unless we have someone on the team who is an undisputed expert for that destination. By "expert" we mean people who have been eating and breathing the destination for many years, and not just someone who has been on one or two familiarizaiton trips.
We found our expert for Antarctica in Jane Wilson. Antarctica is in her blood - having had ancestors who were leaders in scientific work there - so much so that a medal in their honour is awarded to scientific achievement in their domain.
Read more about Jane's background on our Antarctica Trip page here.
Jane spent some time with us understanding the kind of people that typically approach CNH Tours for a Galapagos "trip of a lifetime". We told her that our guests tended to be an inquisitive bunch, keen on getting the absolute most out of their trip, not afraid going the extra mile and of course, not at all averse to unmatched personalized service. We asked her to identify what she considered a winning combination of ship and itinerary for our guests.
With that in mind, she identified a ship and two itinerary options that she assured us would fit perfectly with CNH Tours alumni.
The "GRAND TOUR" - a 21 day itinerary from Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego, Argentina) to the Falkland Islands, on to South Georgia Islands (the Serengeti of Antarctica) and over to the Antarctic Peninsula.
The "PENINSULAR EXPLORER" - a 13 day itinerary from Ushuaia, with a focus on the Antarctic Peninsula, home of spectacular land, sea and icescapes and diverse wildlife.
We are focusing on two specific departures: 28 Jan – 17 Feb 2023 (Grand Tour) and 18 - 30 Jan 2023 (Peninsula Explorer). We'll be sure that any issues around COVID-19 should be well and truly behind us by then.
The Island Sky - carrying 112 passengers, kayaks and even camping gear, it's large enough to be able to navigate icy and at times lively seas in comfort, and small enough not to lose the sense of intimacy you expect to have when visiting these very special and very remote places.
