Have you ever imagined yourself skiing in Antarctica? I can help you make it happen!
Let me invite you to live a unique and wild 17-day ski touring adventure in the southernmost spot in the world: Antarctica.
About 98% of Antarctica is covered with ice, which has an average thickness of 1,9 km. The snow quality of this continent will allow us to enjoy to the maximum the best skiing itineraries.
The adventure starts in Punta Arenas, Chile. From there, we will fly into the King George Islands, where we will spend 9 days of pure backcountry skiing, achieving the most challenging goals.
Finally, we will return to Ushuaia, Argentina, via the Australis Yacht. It will be a really exciting traverse! Please find the complete itinerary at the bottom of this description.
Keep in mind it is a really demanding adventure suitable for experienced skiers with a strong fitness level. If you are looking for a less technical trip in South America I can suggest these winter and summer programs in the Patagonia.
Get in touch with me for further details or if you want to make your reservation. I have no doubt it will be one of the most incredible experiences of your life!
We’ll arrive at Punta Arenas, in Chile. Welcome dinner. Overnight in Punta Arenas.
