In the Arctic hikes vary between 2 to 3 hours morning and afternoon walks and 8 hours full day hikes. In Antarctica the situation is different as we are not allowed to eat nor leave any toilet waste behind (Antarctic Treaty/ IAATO regulations). Therefore our time on land in Antarctica is limited. We plan to go ashore immediately after breakfast or lunch and we will be back for the next meal. That means that there is only about 3 to 4 hours maximum for the hikes. When possible one longer walk of about 6 hours will be made at Deception Island.
