Sleep under the stars in Antarctica! Imagine finishing dinner on board our expedition vessel then jumping into the Zodiacs for a run ashore with your sleeping bag and bivy sac (swag). Wow! This is your opportunity to camp ashore in Antarctica! Picture it… lying in your sleeping bag listening to crackling and grumbling of glaciers, the splintering of icebergs and the soothing sounds of water and brash ice washing onto the pebbly beach. Perhaps you might even hear the blow of a whale, feeding in the bay near your campsite. Who said that sleep would come easy? But when it does, you drift away knowing that you are breathing pristine air and
experiencing something very few ever have before. After your night ashore, we take you back to the ship for a hot shower, perhaps a sauna, and a hearty breakfast in our dining room. We provide all of the camping gear required for your night ashore. Although we do not expect night-time temperatures to drop below -3°C, our sleeping bags are rated to -12°C. And we also have some tents for use ashore if you prefer to sleep under canvas. The cost of camping is INCLUDED in the price of your expedition.
