Climb into a sturdy kayak for a polar safari, where you encounter the ice and its creatures such as the Crabeater seal, up close. Lindblad Expeditions-National Geographic experts were the first to pioneer kayaking in the polar regions, which means you are in good hands as you paddle through the berg fields. This expedition is particularly satisfying as you’re bound to experience a slew of sightings in this amphitheater of ice, snow and sea life. You may make eye contact with an Antarctic tern plunge diving for krill or hear the cheerful sound of “ice krispies,” or glacier-trapped gas that crackles as it escapes from floating bits of ice.
