Complete hiking guides & practical information

If there is one activity that we all enjoy on board Kerguelen, it is hiking during our stopovers. Whether it’s for a quiet walk or a more sportive hike, we like to leave with our backpack for the day and dive into the heart of nature. We have prepared complete guides for some of the hikes we have done. With these, you’ll have all the practical information about the hike at your fingertips, an overview of what to expect on the trail, the alternative paths we’ve tested and approved, and answers to a bunch of other practical questions to help you decide which hike to take. We also provide our GPX tracks to accompany you on the right hiking trails.
