Camping in Antarctica$225
Price per person in US dollars from
No camping experience is necessary, because camping in the polar regions is unlike any camping done in other parts of the world. The equipment supplied is designed for low temperature adventures.
Depending on the choice of itinerary and dates of travel, campers may experience only a few hours of twilight. At other times, campers may feel as if they can touch the stars. No two polar camping adventures are alike. We only use high quality REI camping equipment on the Ocean Diamond.
The per person price from camping in Antarctica is $225 per person.
Iguazu FallsFrom USD$460
2 Nights/3 DaysPrice Per Person (Twin Occupancy)
The Iguazu River, the border between Argentina and Brazil, drops 70 meters (229 feet) over a stretch of 23 km (14miles). Of the 270 waterfalls along the river, the Falls of San Martin and the Devil's Throat are the most often photographed. About 70% of the river's water flows through the Devil'sThroat, creating a great cloud of mist that can be seen from miles away. The Falls have been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
