Off the Beaten Track Off the Beaten Track
£ 7730

Get Off the Beaten Track and you’ll not just cruise around the spectacular White Continent – you’ll feel you’ve become part of it.

Off the Beaten Track is designed to give you the full, on-the-ice, Antarctic experience.

From a mobile, wilderness adventure lodge you’ll set sail through the unpredictable Drake Passage and land in the South Shetland Islands. You’ll voyage on, south of the Lemaire Channel, to the Antarctic Peninsula.

You’ll be able to take a kayak across the blue-black Antarctic waters, you can camp on the ice itself, climb mountains and ski against a pristine backdrop of sparkling white. You can go hiking or snow-shoeing, or take photo sessions with a professional photographer.

Experience the real Antarctica that lies off the beaten track.

Shore visits are included but depend on weather conditions. Extra excursions vary with different itineraries and weather, and could typically include:

  • Kayaking to icebergs and floes
  • Camping on the polar ice
  • Skiing and snow-shoeing
  • Hiking and climbing
  • Photographic excursions
