Win A Free Trip To Cartagena, Colombia!

Cartagena is Colombia’s almost 500-year-old walled city, known for its stunning architecture, magnificent churches and museums. Its romantic atmosphere is unrivaled.

Now you can win a trip to Cartagena by entering the LATAM Airlines Group (LAN Airlines and TAM Airlines) “Countdown To Cartagena Sweepstakes.” (The trip is technically for two, so you can bring a friend, or stay true to the solo traveling philosophy, and make it yourself!) The trip includes a three-night stay at Casa San Agustin, a charming and luxurious hotel located within Cartagena’s walled Old Town. But hurry, this sweepstakes ends at 11:59 pm EDT, September 4th, 2014.

Join Aurora Expeditions for the adventure of a lifetime!

For over 20 years Aurora Expeditions have been taking small groups of like-minded travellers to Antarctica. Carrying a maximum of 54 passengers, their ice-strengthened vessel Polar Pioneer is ideally suited for small groups.

Less people also means more solitude and greater flexibility if ice or weather dictate a schedule change. And because we have less people to ferry ashore, we often make more landings.

Whether you chose to join the guided wildlife walks, take part in photography workshops, or camp on the ice overnight, there were always plenty of like-minded people to share the experience with.

Aurora offers a NO SINGLE SUPPLEMENT option for those travellers willing to share their cabin. The company’s cabin-sharing service is the easy way to find a cabin mate of the same gender – and even if a suitable cabin mate can’t be found, you’ll still only pay the standard twin-share rate.

SPECIAL OFFER: Solo travellers will save an additional 15% off the price of selected Antarctica voyages this season.

For more information and special offers visit our website.
