Polar Excursions

If you got any closer, you'd need fins

The ship's team of 14 Zodiacs enables passengers to travel safely and quickly from ship to shore for uniquely personal encounters with awe-inspiring wilderness. They’ll also take you up close and personal to bird cliffs, icebergs and the unique wildlife. Almost every day you’ll find yourself jumping aboard a Zodiac and on each departure you will be accompanied by our team of experts whose education and experience combine to provide you with a greater understanding and appreciation of these incredible and remote regions.

Optional Extras

For the more adventurous, our kayaking and camping trips provide the opportunity to encounter the intimacy and power of the polar regions in ways very few people can lay claim to having experienced. Space is limited, however, so be certain to book in advance. To add-on kayaking or camping excursions to your antarctic cruise simply call us, let us know your booking number and your travel specialist will add your choice of optional extras.

Camping and kayaking are only available to book prior to your departure, secure your place today!

What better way to really be part of the Antarctic experience than by camping on the continent? Follow in the footsteps of bold explorers and experience this land’s awe-inspiring splendours first hand. Our Antarctica camping experience includes time to enjoy the beauty of Antarctica near your campsite with ample photography options. Experience the sounds of heaving ice, the fresh scent of the sea, the stars at night—nothing gets you closer to the humbling forces of nature than spending a night ashore! But be sure to book early! Space on the ice is limited!

Camping excursions are dependent on weather but campers can expect 1 night camping per cruise.

Go eye to eye with an inquisitive whale—it’s a rare and special moment that will carve itself into your memory. Kayaking isn’t just an outdoor adventure, it’s an opportunity to experience these remote regions from another vantage point. A limited number of lucky adventurers will venture out to sheltered bays and areas known for calmer waters and take part in group kayaking trips led by our experienced and skilled leaders. No other activity gets you as close to the natural environment!

Kayaking excursions are dependent on weather but kayakers can expect around 4 trips per cruise.
