The highlight of any expedition on board the World Explorer are undoubtedly the Zodiac excursions out into the wild polar landscape, launched from the purpose-build lower deck of the vessel. Other activities such as kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and polar camping are available subject to availability and the correct weather conditions.
