Ski Mountaineering: This activity is for experienced ski mountaineers who aim at reaching the higher peaks. Under the guidance of a certified mountain and ski guide, participants move into sometimes steep, deep snow-covered, partly glaciated, and potentially dangerous alpine terrain. The ski mountain guide is in charge and responsible for the safety of the group.

Adventure Activities offered throughout the season:

Camping: Spend the night sleeping outside in Antarctica! Camping can be done anytime during the season in Antarctica, but is really beautiful on the snow and ice. Ships offer different options for “open-air” camping with extremely warm sleeping bags, to tent camping, to several night programs with kayaks. All you need to bring is your enthusiasm and sense of adventure!

Kayaking: Paddling between icebergs and pack ice, observing animals in their natural environment, the only sound you hear is water dripping from the paddles, kayaking is truly a peaceful way to become one with the coastline surrounding Antarctica. Kayakers are accompanied with a kayak guide and have the opportunity to go off the beaten track. Kayaking in the polar areas adds greatly to the experience being in unspoiled wilderness. Basic kayaking skills are required.

Overnight Sea Kayaking – One select voyage offers a multi-night kayaking trip. Everything is supplied that is required for overnights away from the ship.

Stand Up Paddle boarding: Combining surfing with kayaking or canoeing, stand-up paddle boarding will give you a very personal and unique perspective on Antarctica. Guided by experienced staff in small groups in good weather conditions on calm bays and harbors.

You must be a very experienced diver and familiar with cold water diving and dry suit diving (at least 20 dives). Before departure you will have to show an internationally accepted diving certificate, diver’s logbook and a statement from your doctor (not older than two years) stating that you are physically healthy to practice scuba diving.

Some vessels have multimedia rooms for photo downloading and optimization. It is safe to say that all programs will offer opportunities for amazing shots and enthusiastic help onboard staff.

About Istanbul Attractions

When you are visiting this city on a luxury trip, do not miss out the opportunity of traveling in the luxury train of Istanbul Orient Express and some of the other attractions to be visited in the city are discussed in the content given below:

Ottoman Empire: A minimum of half-a-day is required for exploring this greatest attraction of Istanbul. Since higher entrance fee is charged, for people, who wish to get full value for the money paid by them as entrance fee, spending a whole day in the empire would be ideal. But, if time forces you to leave the place immediately, do not forget to visit the must-see features of the empire being the innermost courtyard, imperial treasury and the Harem.

Byzantine Wonders: Even if the number of days you are planning to spend in this city is lesser, do not forget to visit the Church of St. Saviour in Chora. This church is popular for its intricate wonders and it lodges frescoes and celebrated mosaics that are standing as the great examples for the art of the earlier era.

Grand Bazaar: This is a must to visit place for shopping enthusiasts and at least three hours is required for exploring the content of this shopping arena. There are more than 5000 vendors dealing with different products and some of the city’s best purses, handbags and carpets can be acquired only from this place.

Tower of Christ: Galata tower, which was built in 1348, is originally called as tower of Christ. Several decades ago, it was used for housing prisoners of war and during 1960s, the tower was reinstated and nightclub was added. You can get a superior view of the entire conurbation of Istanbul from the 360 degree viewing gallery present in this place.

Info of Budget Travel Resorts

One source to gain that information from are travel agencies. However, as their income is generally based on how much you pay, they might not give you all the information you need. You need to find more reliable and more thorough sources. Thankfully, the information era is here and you can tap to millions of pages worth information with just a few clicks.

The world wide web is your friend. There are countless pages offering objective reviews of different travel resorts. By looking through the reviews of those resorts that are within your price range, you can quickly weed out those that are of poor quality.

There are also web sites that offer discounts for certain vacation packages. They are often more competitively priced than those offered by offline travel agencies, as online companies can cut costs where traditional ones cannot. This edge directly cuts the costs of your vacation.

Perhaps the most important information you can get from this kind of web sites is the information of what you need to have with you. Some travel resorts, for example those in the Pacific or Indian areas, are not equipped with everything you might be used to. Especially so, if you need to pick a budget resort.

Unless you have all the required items with you, you may need to buy something you have no need for afterward. This adds to the cost of the vacation and is an unnecessary burden to your travel budget. By thinking ahead and making sure you take with you everything you may need, you can avoid costs and use the money for what it should be: entertainment and leisure.
