  • The 'Last Frontier'
  • True adventure, vast wilderness and abundant wildlife
  • Enjoy the comforts of ship based travel


Antarctica is seen by many as the ‘Last Frontier’ for mountaineering and skiing due to its remote location and difficulty of access. An expedition with us to the Antarctic Peninsula is an exotic, life changing experience very few people have the opportunity to experience.

We cross the Drake Passage by ship and then camp on Wiencke Island, exploring  and touring around on skis or snowboard and making exquisite turns high above the ocean, whales and penguins.

Normally an expedition to Antarctica can be extremely costly and difficult to arrange. By joining one of our expeditions you will get to experience the abundant wonders of the Antarctic Peninsula by spending the maximum amount of time actually on the ice while enjoying the comforts of ship based travel.
