Well, planning for your Arctic travel to the United States can be easy if you pay attention to the nitty-gritty. The first thing you need to consider is packing light and straightforward. You will want to keep your packing, and daily outfits light and manageable, both for the sake of unnecessary luggage transfers and your physical movement. With the evolution in fashion, today you can find a host of high-tech fabrics that are thin yet insulated enough to keep you toasty and dry especially for the polar cruises.
It would help if you also remembered that for an Antarctica travel expedition functionality trumps fashion. It would be best if you aimed to prioritise quality and functionality rather than quantity and trend. You will only require practical and comfortable shoes to aboard your ship. It also allows you to run in case you meet a troubled polar bear on the way.
You need to also keep in mind that layering is king. It is the best, fastest and most convenient way to keep up with Mother Nature’s erratic behaviour in the Polar Regions. That said, having practical attire that you can easily layer is your best when you go on that luxury Antarctica cruise or that long-awaited Arctic cruise. It can be especially essential if you plan on going on expedition ships then switching up to the outdoors.
Layering also comes in handy since the ill-reputed ‘climatic unpredictability’ in the luxury Arctic cruises works in both ways: not only can the weather decide to turn in an instant, but it can also warm up before you can change into some heavy clothes.
So, if you are scratching your head wondering what to carry to that Arctic cruise, be sure to consider those tips, and you will enjoy every moment!
