What to Expect

During your Antarctica cruise you can experience exhilarating Zodiac cruises and land excursions, and Aurora Expeditions also offers the chance to kayak in pristine waters, sleep onshore; climb icebergs or dive to the icy depths, with some of the world's most experienced expedition guides.

Camping in Antarctica

An once-in-a-lifetime experience, camping in Antarctica is an activity that should not be missed. On some Antarctica cruises Aurora Expeditions offer the opportunity to spend the night on the ice, and supplies all the equipment needed for safe and comfortable camping; such as tents and sleeping bags. There is no better way to absorb the silence and deepen your appreciation of this special place.

Kayaking in Antarctica

Kayaking quietly through the crystal clear waters of Antarctica is another way to have an intimate experience with Antarctica, allowing you to get close to wildlife and amazing scenery. Cruises to Antarctica bring new experiences to savour every day, from face to face encounters with whales, to paddling to the edges of a penguin rookery or passed seals sleeping in ice floes, or just enjoying the awe of being surrounded by giant icebergs.

Scuba Diving in Antarctica

For the more adventurous, there is an opportunity for experienced divers to scuba dive below the Antarctic Circle. Diving in Antarctica offers not only ice, but also an extraordinary array of marine life, such as penguins, seals, and a variety of Antarctic fish.

Climbing in Antarctica

Aurora Expeditions has always been at the cutting edge of climbing exploration in the Antarctic Peninsula, and our mountain guides have forged new routes on many of the continent's magnificent peeks. Antarctica offers experienced climbers hundreds of unclimbed peaks. Also, if you have always longed to follow in the footsteps of the great Antarctic explorers, Aurora Expeditions offer cruises to Antarctica that retraces the epic journey of Sir Ernest Shackleton, repeating his alpine crossing on foot from King Haakon Bay to the now deserted whaling station at Stromness on the fabled island of South Georgia.
