Description

Join me for the greatest experience of your life: a 13-day ski touring trip in Antarctica.

Starting from Ushuaia, the most southern town in the world, we’ll navigate the South Pacific, passing Cape Horn and crossing the Drake Passage.   

Antarctica is a dreamy destination. This is your chance to actually be a part of an incredible expedition below the Artic Circle.

During this trip, a ship called Clipper Adventurer will be our warm and confortable base camp. The crew is a group of experienced people used to navigate in this latitudes.

Each day, we’ll explore incredible spots of the Antarctic Peninsula and navigate through fjords and icebergs. There will be a lot of ski touring, of course! We’ll also have conferences about geological and biological topics.

I actually believe this experience will change the way you perceive the world. Being in the Antarctic Peninsula requires to be humble and respectful. Besides, you’ll feel the immensity of nature and the silence of this ice paradise.

In addition, you’ll enjoy watching leopard seals, humpback whales, killer whales, seals and different kind of penguins. In fact, seeing so many wonderful things will make you conscious of how complex the ecosystem around us is.

You can find a complete program below for further details about this trip. However, the program is subject to change depending on weather, ice or local conditions.

Please get in touch with me if you want to have the skiing experience of your life. It will be my pleasure to bring you there and guide you in this fantastic environment.

On the contrary, if you are planning a trip to an unusual destination on the other side of the world, you can check this heliskiing trip to Kamchatka, in Siberia.
