Inspired by the legacy of the great explorers, IFMGA guide Marco designed a 13-day ski touring trip, to explore the magnificent Antarctica.
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 will 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 these latitudes.
Each day, we will explore incredible spots of the Antarctic Peninsula and navigate through fjords and icebergs. There will be a lot of ski touring, of course! We will 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 will feel the immensity of nature and the silence of this ice paradise.
In addition, you will 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 changes 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 the fantastic Antarctica 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.

I have been a mountain guide for almost 20 years. But I'm not only a guide...
The mountain is the thread of my life. I am a member of the Chamonix Guides Company, ski instructor and teacher for many years at ENSA (National School of Ski and Alpinism), I am very experienced in the mountains. My experience is multifaceted since I partake in varied projects, as a trainer and first aider at the Chamoniarde de Secours (an association that contributes to the development of mountain safety and to promote alpine environment knowledge), technical supervisor of the freeride competitions organization, or safety advisor and rider in several freeride videos.
My favorite?... The Kamchatka, heliski's promised land. In 2005 I created a heliski agency in Russia, to share my passion organizing exceptional ski journeys.
The dream of all freeskiers !!!
See you in May!
You guys are great. Thank you for incredible moments. I will be back!
Marco is a pro. Seriously amazing experience in Kamchatka.
Leave your tasks at home and go to mounts with Heliski Russia. This guys know how to prepare and cook your gourmet vacation!
