Laura Gerwin

Laura comes with an extensive background in adventure travel, spending the last 25 years crisscrossing the globe collecting experiences on all seven continents.

Laura specializes in curating trips of a lifetime to destinations worldwide focused on polar expeditions. From the airport of Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Antarctica’s ice runways, Laura has guided groups and families through the rainforests and ancient landscapes of North America to the historic huts of the original explorers in Antarctica. From ice-caves to mountain tops, she loves helping others experience the joys of travel.

Laura is one of the few people on the planet that has had the pleasure to call McMurdo Station, Antarctica home. Laura’s ice life started washing pots that were big enough to crawl in and clean from the inside out for the United States Antarctic Program. She worked her way out of the kitchen and onto the ice-shelf managing passenger logistics at remote airfields driving on roads made of ice in a monster bus called Ivan the Terra Bus. With over two years spent living in Antarctica, Laura has a suitcase full of stories to share about the wildlife, history, science, exploration, and magic of a place that she called home.

Laura joined Antarctica21 in 2022 and is passionate about the poles. She is thrilled at the opportunity to share the magic of Antarctica with travelers.
