An Antarctic expedition for adventurers who prefer to get amongst the environment, rather than view it from a porthole. This expedition has a number of adventure-oriented add-ons so that travellers can get the most out of their Antarctic experience. Scuba dive with the seals through plunging ice walls where few artificial fins have been. Climb deserted alpine peaks, or spend a night camping on the ice.
The Antarctic Peninsula expedition departs from Ushuaia, Argentina and arrives at Punta Arenas, Chile – or the reverse, depending on what dates you choose to leave. And for those who don’t quite know how to handle their camera, there’s a professional photographer on board to help snap-happy adventurers adjust to the conditions and capture their best pictures.
From US$9,600 per person for a twin-share. Extra fees for those wanting to kayak, scuba dive or partake in polar snorkelling.
Need to be of a reasonable fitness and able to navigate bumpy terrain.
A five-foot distance is required from all wildlife.
