Q: What is a basecamp cruise?

Our signature basecamp cruises, which are primarily offered in Antarctica, provide adventure-loving polar travelers the maximum range of outdoor activities available on an expedition cruise.

These exciting voyages include all the core activities we normally offer only as supplements: kayaking, mountaineering, hiking/snowshoeing, photo workshops, even camping (though only in Antarctica, due to the Arctic risk of polar bears).

Shoreline walks and Zodiac cruises, which are part of our usual cruise program in both the Arctic and Antarctica, are also part of the basecamp experience.

For more details on what makes our basecamp cruises so uniquely immersive, check out our dedicated basecamp page.
