Both small-ship adventures visit the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. With two daily excursions, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to explore Antarctica on foot during landings where you’ll zip to shore on Zodiacs and be greeted by colonies of penguins. The G Expedition team is made up of experts in geology, marine biology, and polar history. While at sea, tune into the lectures to learn about Antarctica’s flora, fauna, and landscapes.
For those feeling extra adventurous and looking for a memorable experience to immerse themselves in the elements of Antarctica, add on an Antarctic kayaking adventure where you’ll have the chance to paddle through the polar environment on a low-slung kayak. Or, if you’re feeling daring, earn the right to say you’ve slept on all seven continents by camping in Antarctica. Ice camping is a thrill you’re not soon to forget—going to sleep in utter silence and hearing glaciers calve in the distance as humpback whales spout in the bay is otherworldly.
