“Perhaps most important of all, however, is the support Pelorus offers to the scientific community.” On a recent heli-skiing expedition led by Geordie in Antarctica, Pelorus worked closely with the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (IAATO) to figure out how Pelorus could make a difference.
The Argentinian Antarctic Survey connected Pelorus with Dr. Mercedes Santos, who accompanied the team and clients on their yacht expedition to Antarctica. “The trip became far more than just a yacht experience.””
When asked about leading the way in responsible travel to the seventh continent, Geordie is enthusiastic and hopeful.
“”I relish the challenge, to basically set the example, move the needle. If this is what we’re doing, then everyone else should be doing the same.” In working alongside IAATO, “you can make a lot of positive change from within” – this is travelling with purpose.
