Ski Tour Antarctica
Scientists and survivalists used to be the few and the brave who set foot on the coldest, sparest continent on the planet. Though the opportunities to travel have improved, the pure adventure that is the barren wilderness has not changed a bit. Half of your Antarctic adventure is the expedition it takes to get to the bottom of the world. Flying is most suitable for travelers interested in going further inland. Adventure Network International provides a ski expedition on Vinson Massif for the highest peak in Antarctica. "Visitors to Mount Vinson are mostly mountaineers looking to climb one of the Seven Summits," says Leslie Wicks, a marking specialist at ANI. "However, excellent snow conditions in recent years allow for ski touring on a customized itinerary."
Dive boats and expedition ships allow you to spend your journey during the austral summer season (November to March) along the Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island spotting whales, penguins, seals, and chasing receding ice packs for amazing photo ops.
