Meet the experts
A Senior Associate of the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, his principal interests involve historical geography and associated studies. Specifically, his work concerns human effects on Polar Regions - especially the smaller islands and archipelagos. Bob is an adviser to several expeditionary organisations, departments of government, a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and a member of the Institute for Historical Research of the University of London where he delivers lectures for several courses. In 1984, he was decorated with the Polar Medal and is a member of both the Arctic Club and Antarctic Club.
Has managed to combine his love of travel and commercial talent by leading Quark's global distribution team. He started travelling at a young age, and has criss-crossed all 7 continents. He's a people person, a lover of languages and cold temperatures. Advice to the first time passenger: Polar travel is not what you may think. It's dynamic, intriguing, and full of variety. Prepare for the unexpected. The first sight of penguins atop a massive iceberg while entering the Antarctic Peninsula is one he'll never forget.
The Polar Specialist at Intrepid Travel. Perri has worked in the travel industry for over 15 years and has over 4 years experience in providing specialist advice for customers wanting to visit the Arctic and Antarctic regions. In addition to helping others plan their adventures, she is an avid traveller herself and has visited around 40 countries, including the Polar regions. She is a wildlife enthusiast, and so seeing 13 polar bears and an up-close encounter with a blue whale during the Spitsbergen in Depth trip were personal highlights for Rena.
