Amongst these varied landing sites and extraordinary bays for cruising, find ourselves delving into expedition field photography program as well as the hiking, snow shoeing, sea kayaking, cross country skiing and mountaineering/ski touring. Using the weather as our guide, endeavor to extend yourselves beyond the standard limits of expedition cruising itineraries. With a flexible hospitality team you are able to spend more time onshore in a chosen environment to meet all of your expeditionary goals.
Once alongside the peninsula plan to launch for an overnight kayaking experience. After packing the kayaks with the necessary gear for this adventure leave the ship and paddle into a chosen destination. Once you land expect to spend about 2/3 hours stretching legs and exploring. Some may ascend to a walk-able summit to take in the views, and massive icebergs in every direction. You will also look for a possible campsite and assemble tents for the wonderful experience of overnight kayak camping in Antarctica.
The next morning pack the gear, jump into the kayaks and paddle for a few hours before rejoining the fellow travelers on board the ship. Specifics for the mountaineering and ski touring program will also depend on weather and avalanche safety. With a focus on the experience rather than the number of penguins seen, you have the flexibility to take your time to launch outdoor pursuits in the right area for the required length of duration.
