The Expedition Team
On the Climb Antarctica expedition there is usually a 1:1 guide to climber ratio, however should you have a group or climbing partner with similar objectives and experience then we may operate at a higher ratio, depending on the technical difficulty of your objectives. You will find the Mountain Guides companionable and strong expedition leaders with considerable power and willingness to see you achieve your goals.
Logistics & Safety Support
Antarctic Logistics & Expeditions (ALE) provides the logistic support and safety backup for our Climb Antarctica expedition. The ALE staff have considerable experience and a strong involvement in Antarctica, including operating the charter plane services to and from the ice. You will receive several documents from our office that ALE requires before our expedition.
Head Office Support Team
Running successful journeys and expeditions is more about experience, knowledge and strategic management than any other factors. As an organisation, we place a substantial amount of time and resources into ensuring our trips are well planned and supported. You can be assured that the AC staff will provide you with friendly advice and knowledgeable support throughout the planning stages of your trip and we will be there to provide backup while the trip is running.
