These are just some of the experiences that make the Antarctica Peninsula Adventure Cruise a must on the bucket list. The accessibility to the rugged beauty of the fjords, glaciers, and peaks of Antarctica is made possible by the modern convenience and comfort of the Sea Adventurer expedition ship, which serves as the mobile base camp to backcountry ski, snowboard, kayak and snowshoe Antarctica alongside our experienced guides.
