The majority of expedition cruises in Antarctica offer the option to do guided hiking. Certain visitor sites are ideal for Antarctica hiking tours. Antarctica hiking tours are always accompanied by a guide and run in small groups. Hiking is a great way to enjoy Antarctica and get your heart rate up at the same time!
You should have a moderate level of fitness or above to hike. Excursions typically last 2-3 hours in duration, but will be judged on general fitness levels of the group.
The mountainous topography of the Peninsula limits the chance for longer hikes everyday, however popular hiking places like Deception Island and Orne Harbour mean they are possible. South Georgia actually offers better walking opportunities, of which the most famous is the final leg of Shackleton’s historic journey trek from Fortuna Bay to Stromness.
