Go on the adventure of a lifetime and explore the remote wilderness of Antarctica on a 13-day ski touring expedition in the wild!
Join us 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.
During this trip, a ship will be our warm and comfortable 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.
This experience will change the way you perceive the world. Being in the Antarctic Peninsula requires being 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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
