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.
Adventure Consultants now leads three 11 day ship based expeditions in the Antarctic Peninsula region each season. We use the ship to cross the Drake Passage and then aim to camp on the snow covered and glaciated Wiencke Island, exploring and touring around on skis or snowboard and making some exquisite turns high above the ocean, whales and penguins Antarctica is famous for.
We are then picked up again by the ship and after some more Antarctic cruising we return to the South American continent.
We have used yachts in the past for 3-4 week expeditions to the Peninsula – this option is still available for private groups planning over a year ahead. See here for details.
Normally an expedition to Antarctica can be extremely costly and difficult to arrange but 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 and enjoying the comforts of ship based travel.
