Antarctica Style

A cruise to Antarctica is lengthy and you’ll need a fair amount of gear. Most cruises will supply a jacket and waterproof boots but you’ll still need to layer underneath. Most passengers dress comfortably during the cruising days with a little extra style for dinners. Remember though this is an expedition cruise so you can leave the heels and sequins behind!

Build Your Adventure Style

Helly Hansen Waterproof Jacket

Most cruises will provide an expedition jacket but you can replicate it here if they don’t. It’s windy on the ship deck so this type of layer is critical.

Wool Mittens

You must have mittens or gloves! It’s so blustery on some of the sails but you don’t want to miss a moment as you might pass by an iceberg full of penguins or leopard seals!

Baffin Cush Slippers

Most expedition ships will provide waterproof boots and these warm down slippers are great to slide into after chilly hours ashore.

Kaenon Sunglasses

Durable, polarized sunglasses are a necessity for gazing at bright sheets of ice and braving windy conditions.

Helly Hansen Vanir Lom Pant

These pants are perfect for onshore excursions with a windproof exterior and great range of motion. The cuffs zip for easy off/on over boots.

OR Sensor Glove

Lightweight gloves with good mobility with the added perk of being able to use your mobile phone with index and thumb being screen friendly.

Patagonia Capilene Cool Long-Sleeve

Layering is always important while you are exploring Antarctica.  This light weight long sleeve is the perfect first layer. You can always add a Helly Hansen sweat shirt for extra comfort.

Bridgedale Midweight Sock

While hiking around islands on the Antarctica peninsula it’s important to keep your feet dry, warm, and comfortable.  These knee high socks are incredible.  We recommend at least two pairs. You can always wash a pair in the sink.
