What to prepare for Antarctica trip


Antarctica is undoubtedly a unique place to visit. Although the location is known for it’s freezing weather, it is home to some of the most breathtaking and rare views of glaciers, icebergs and ice waterways.
It also has plenty of wildlife on land and underwater. Due to the extreme weather in Antarctica, it’s important to be prepared before travelling.


As mentioned, travelling to Antarctica will require safety precautions due to extreme weather and dangerous surroundings. All travel companies will be equipped with safety guidelines to make your travel safe while you’re in Antarctica. It’s important to read and the guide and take them seriously in case of emergencies.


Being protected while you’re in Antarctica is necessary. If you’ve never been to Antarctica before, you’ll need to be aware of the intense ultraviolet light which can harm us if we’re not protected. To ensure you are protected, don’t forget to bring a pair of sunglasses.


The weather is going to be cold and chilly, that’s why it’s important to bring the right clothes for this kind of weather. Ideally, we recommend bringing clothes that will keep you warm throughout your journey. Don’t forget to bring a thick coat, gloves, socks, a hat and walking boots. Layering up will also help with keeping warm.


Did you know that visiting Antarctica doesn’t require any visa? You’ll only need to bring the necessary documents including your passport and your health insurance. If you’re travelling by cruise, you will still need to bring your travel documents.


Antarctica is filled with many breathtaking scenes that you can only see once in a lifetime. Bringing a camera to capture and video your journey will be essential if you want to remember and look back on your travels. If you’re a serious photographer, we recommend bringing extra long lenses as this is ideal for capturing nature or wildlife from a distance.

What to Take When Glamping in the UK

What to Take When Glamping in the UK

What Exactly is Glamping?

There is a good chance you may have heard of Glamping. Even if you are not too familiar with the concept, you might guess from the name that it is a mixture of camping and glamour. Your bedroom will become a tent, but in more luxurious settings then a normal camping session! Not only can you expect your bedroom surroundings to be more glamorous, the facilities will be too. Unlike the other style of camping, you will not just be in the middle of an average field, with a typical tent and very limited facilities. Glamping could suit, for example, those who want to take a trip somewhere and camp out, stay at one of the increasing amounts of beautiful glamping locations, and still have all their home comfort facilities to hand. You get to use the services of the campsite, but also provide for yourself using your own equipment, sort of halfway between camping and your home!

What do you Pack? Glamping The Essentials.

Okay, so some of the things you might like to pack for your glamping adventure may not be too dissimilar to a typical camping trip, but you also have other options.

Firstly, and perhaps most obvious you should take a good bag. One that is durable and can hold plenty is ideal but is not too heavy for you to carry, a rucksack type could be ideal. You might want a large one for the bulk, then a smaller one to carry with you during the day.

You might like to bring some extra smallish containers to keep safe any odds and ends. To keep drinks or certain cold foods cool, an ice chest is a great idea, and if you are glamping when the weather is very warm, you’ll be very thankful for it!

Now you need to consider what bedding to take, a tent cannot measure up exactly as a regular bedroom, but you can do your best! Pick a sleeping bag, pillows, duvet, etc. You might like to take an air mattress, it will be a good idea to take a repair kit though as they easily get punctures! You can take folding furniture if you have room for it (like everything on this list, do check what you glamping accommodation already provides first). Although you will want to recreate a bedroom that is as cosy as you can hope for, you are limited space-wise!

Take plenty of spare batteries for any electrical equipment you may want, such as torches or other lighting devices. Remember to take sufficient supplies of food and drink-items that are suitable for camping and will not go off, as well as cooking utensils, and items for cleaning. Bring a wash bag full of all your washing essentials and enough clothes to last for the duration. Think about what tools you might need, such as a swiss army knife, a compass, a fire extinguisher, watch/clock, a fishing rod for example. And finally, but also importantly, think of any entertainment to take like a good book, cards, crosswords, magazine, kindle, radio, football/cricket set to play, etc.

Tips for planning your trip to Antarctica


Antarctica is one of the coldest and iciest places in the world. It’s also home to many natural attractions including the icebergs and lagoons. What’s more is that it’s also rich in both wildlife and sea life. When visiting Antarctica, it’s always a good idea to plan ahead. To help you with your plan, we have some tips below that you wouldn’t want to miss.

Travel on a cruise

If this is your first time travelling to Antarctica then know that most visitors will be travelling on a cruise. The prices of booking a cruise can range from £3000-£4000 depending on how long you will be staying and which months you are visiting. If the price is too high for your budget, we recommend booking your cruise last minute as these types of booking can dramatically cut down your cost by thousands! However last minute booking means that you will have to be flexible in that month you are travelling.

Check which costs are included

When booking a package deal with a cruise, make sure that you check which costs are included in the package. All package varies on what’s included. For instance, some cruise package only allows you stay on the cruise without stepping foot in Antarctica. Always check that your package will let you explore everything in Antarctica!

Unique and Underrated Tourist Destinations

Maybe you’re a fan of travelling and experiencing new things, but visiting famous cities and seeing iconic buildings isn’t that interesting to you. If you’d prefer to discover the unknown and see some spectacular sights that aren’t so overwhelmed with tourists, consider some of these unique options.

Pancake Rocks, New Zealand

New Zealand as a whole is a stunning yet underrated tourist destination, partly due to its distance from Europe. However, Pancake Rocks is a prime example of an incredible sight (millions of years in the making) that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

Sichuan, China

Home of The Giant Buddha (a 233-foot statue carved into the side of a mountain over 1,200 years ago), Sichuan is one of China’s most impressive tourist destinations, but it isn’t one of the most mainstream. If you’re interested in Chinese history and culture, consider a trip here.
