8 Over-the-Top Shore Excursionsby John Roberts | February 26, 2016
1. Adventure to the Bottom of the World
Found on: Crystal Cruises
When Crystal Symphony arrives in Punta Arenas, Chile, hop off the ship and into a plane for a little day trip to the Antarctic Peninsula. After the scenic flight, offload for a strenuous expedition exploring icy, glacier-filled waters by Zodiac boat and hiking around frozen islands. (Not to worry, there's a lunch break.) You'll also mingle with penguins and other wildlife before your return plane ride to rejoin the ship.
