You may think you’ve kayaked in some extreme spots, but nothing beats an afternoon paddling in Antarctica. Not all expeditions offer this as an excursion, so be sure to check in advance if this is something you really want to try.
Zodiac boats are great, but there’s nothing quite like the on-water perspective that kayaking provides. Paddle around icebergs, past wildlife such as seals and penguins, and if you’re lucky you may even see some whales. This activity is extremely dependent on weather, so don’t get too disappointed if you can’t hit the water. But if you do manage to paddle around the 7th continent, there is no doubt this will be a story you tell friends for years to come.
