NO 2: A Notebook

Adding a notebook and pen to your Antarctica packing list might just be the best thing you do. In the midst of workshops and lectures offered by expedition companies, you’ll find yourself immersed in an educational haven. Jotting down insights and fascinating facts becomes a habit, ensuring you retain the wealth of knowledge shared.

Even if you never experienced motion sickness before, our best advice is to pack some seasickness medicine. Truth be told, it is a good idea to take a few different things with you on an Antarctic cruise. What works on ordinary rough seas, may not work on the infamous Drake passage.

NO 5: Suncream/ sunblock

Sun protection is extremely important on the frozen continent. Even on an overcast day, we got tanned! The ozone layer is thin and you are likely to spend your entire time on shore excursions (a.k.a landings) and on the deck of the expedition ships. So pack lots of SPF 50.
