Whether you pitch your own tent or stay at an established "base camp," camping on the Antarctic Peninsula is a safe, yet exhilarating way to have an intimate, rare experience of sleeping on Antarctica. Also get easy access to land-based activities which might be limited on most other Antarctic cruises. Partake in activities like sea kayaking, skiing, exploring the freezing waters by zodiac, and hiking across glaciers in the wake of Shackleton, camping gives you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sleep on permanent glaciers at the bottom of the world. Channel your inner penguin & huddle your sleeping bags for warmth as the tent protects you from the frigid winds just outside. Contact Adventure Life if you have any questions and we'll help you coordinate all the details of your Antarctic expedition!
