Cruises for People Who Hate Cruising

by Colleen Clark

REI Antarctica Icebreaker Cruise

Wide berth: For intrepid explorers who need even more adventure than the rock walls and zip lines on modern cruise ships

Smooth sailing: Vessels plying the waters around Antarctica are made to take a bruisin' and keep on cruisin', with reinforced hulls designed to withstand the hidden dangers of icebergs. On REI sailings, you'll set out with a crew of ornithologists, geologists, glaciologists, and lots of other "ists" and study everything from ice-chart reading to digital photography. Helicopters swoop you above the ice pack, and Zodiac boats bring you face-to-face with seals lounging on ice floes. You'll visit remote research stations and hike expansive snowfields. In short, this is a cruise for people who think "vacation" and "expedition" should be one and the same.
