Tips to remember:

Being in Antarctica
  • Anyone with underlying health problems should consult a doctor before booking a trip to Antarctica. A proper health check-up is mandatory.
  • Carry good quality, protective sunglasses and sunscreen. There is still a hole in the ozone layer above the southern hemisphere, so the sun’s rays are harsh – made fiercer by reflecting off ice, snow and water.
  • Dress for the weather and understand your body resistance.
  • Carry extra mandatory medicines required to keep your body suitable for the weather and the sea sickness which is common for all travellers while being in the sea for long.
  • Understand the wildlife and do not go too close to them. Respect their territory and be a silent observer in their natural habitat.
  • Follow the given instructions by the expert. They share a lot of important information that you cannot afford to miss.
  • Be a responsible traveller, do not litter.
  • Let the eggs, stones, ice, shells, plants, rocks, fossils, soil, etc be where they were, do not carry them along. As everything here is a part of a heritage.

― Jon Krakauer
