The Expedition Team
The team will have a minimum size of 4 members and 1 guide and a maximum size of 10 members and 2 guides.
Antarctic Logistics & Expeditions (ALE) provides the logistic support and safety backup for our Last Degree expedition. ALE staff have considerable experience and a strong involvement in Antarctica. You will have received several documents from our office that ALE requires before our expedition. They operate the charter planes to and from the ice, as well as the connecting flights to Last Degree start point and back from South Pole.
Expedition Leader & Guides
Adventure Consultants are the longest serving guiding company in Antarctica and were integral in pioneering early ascents and journeys on the continent. You will find the Adventure Consultants guides companionable and strong expedition leaders with considerable power and willingness to see you achieve your goals. The number of guides is determined by the team size but the normal ratio of guides to members is 1:5.
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.
