Geoffrey Kent to celebrate 50th anniversary in Antarctica

Abercrombie & Kent, the luxury travel company, has been creating experiences of a lifetime for 50 years. To celebrate the anniversary, pioneering founder, chairman and CEO Geoffrey Kent is traveling to Antarctica on “Le Boreal” luxury cruise liner November 27th-December 10th before continuing on to to all seven continents in celebration of the benchmark anniversary.

"With a trip to Australia already on my docket, this journey will find me reaching all seven continents in A&K’s anniversary year — and I could not think of a more fitting way to celebrate," explains Kent. “It’s a unique opportunity for me to spend time getting to know our guests — people with a passion for exploration who have made our success possible.”
Kent’s last voyage to Antarctica was 20 years ago. Traveling on one of the first expedition ships, the icy continent has been calling back to him ever since.

“I’m looking forward to returning on 'Le Boreal,’” Kent states, “Which brings an extraordinary level of luxury and style to the ends of the earth.”

Hosting a cocktail reception for the guests, Kent is a wealth of experiences and knowledge of luxury world travel. Sharing stories about exploring some of the world’s most remote and challenging destinations from the last fifty years, the reception will be a once-in-a-life-time experience to hear first hand about the adventures of Geoffrey Kent.

Scheduled for the Austral Summer, the two-week voyage into some of the most breathtaking scenery and wildlife is all part of the voyage. As the only all-balcony vessel in Antarctica, “Le Boreal” affords luxury services with world-class views for guests. To further accentuate the “shoot with a camera and not a gun” mantra on which the company was founded, professional photographer and coach Richard Harker is also on board to share practical tips to capture the beauty and drama of the expedition.
