RCGS Resolute Optional Activities

Camping One Ocean

Camping (Complimentary)

Imagine spending a night as the first explorers of Antarctica did, camping on the ice. All the equipment to camp is onboard and all that is needed is a sense of adventure and good weather.  Camping is always subject to suitable weather and ice conditions.

Available on all voyage excluding South Georgia in Depth voyages. Camping is less likely to happen on the longer voyages to the Falkland Islands, South Georgia and Antarctica itineraries or on March voyages.

Kayaking (From US$795)

Imagine the swish of water as it passes your hull, or the clack of brash ice against your paddle blade. Sea kayaking in Antarctica allows you to experience another side of this magnificent destination. You will be accompanied by a kayak guide who will take you to interesting locations, many that can only able to be reached by kayaks. As spaces are limited kayaking must be booked in advance.
