Q: What kind of clothing should I take with me during the expedition cruise?

The choice of clothing for cold temperatures during your Arctic or Antarctica expedition cruise is a very special matter. It depends on your individual experience whether to take warm clothes with you.

Our advice is to take warm, wind and waterproof clothes with you during the expedition. Multiple layers of medium-warmth clothing provide more insulation than a single heavier article – this is due to warm air getting trapped in between the layers, acting as further insulation. Look for clothing made of wool, silk and new synthetic fibres, all of which retain heat better than other materials.

The secret to keeping warm during an expedition is the “layer principle”. Layers also give you flexibility in your ability to control your temperature as you can take off a layer if you are too warm or put another layer on if you are cold. The most important layer is the outer waterproof and windproof shell.  More information about this can be found in our expedition manual which you will receive at time of booking and in our blog:
