The Antarctic Experience
Adaptation is the Key to Survival
Adaptation to the environment has been the key to survival for Antarctic wildlife and the successful explorers of old, such as Roald Amundsen.
Adaptation is Key to a Satisfying Antarctic Experience
The ability to adapt to the environment is also key to enjoying Antarctic cruises. Conditions change dramatically and drastically. A snow squall can appear, seemingly out of nowhere. The wind can blow at 40 knots per hour for days, while the sun shines brightly in a blue sky endlessly. Yet, a rock cliff can reflect the sun’s heat warming the air so much that you will remove your parka.
Expedition Leaders watch the weather, ice and wind and adapt the daily program to ensure our Antarctic expeditions are safe and full of memories that last a life time.
