Things to do in Antarctica :

  • Visit the Port Lockroy museum and get a glimpse of the history of what life was like in this remote area.
  • Enjoy some vodka at the Ukranian Vernadsky base bar.
  • Do a little shopping – Port Lockroy, the UK base, provided the most extensive shopping experience with a large gift shop of Antarctica souvenirs, but Vernadsky, the Ukranian base, boasts the Southernmost Souvenir Shop in the world!
  • Explore the ghost town of Whaler Bay on Deception Island.
  • Do some sea kayaking. Kayaking is the best thing about a cruise to Antarctica and the best way to get out on the still glassy water and see a completely different perspective.
  • Observe the adorableness of Antarctica’s penguins. It is home to 6 different species – Adelies, Chinstraps, Emperors, Gentoos, Macaronis and Rockhoppers.
