Antarctica is seen by many as the ‘Last Frontier’ for skiing and snowboarding due to its remote location and difficulty of access. An expedition to the Antarctic is an exotic, life changing experience very few people have the opportunity to experience.
We explore the Antarctica Peninsula from the comfortable 100m Sea Adventurer ship. She’s a fully reconditioned polar explorer with comfortable cabins and excellent food. This is the most affordable way to explore and experience Antarctica for 2 weeks with a group of like minded skiers and snowboarders and there’s various options of cabin comfort available. Quickly cross the formidable Drake Passage and then spend several days exploring the amazing Peninsula’s snow covered slopes, wildlife and ambiance. Ponder the complexity of the fragile and dynamic ecosystem of the Antarctic Peninsula while enjoying daily ski tours, lectures and wildlife excursions. Actively explore this frontier’s skiing possibilities with your family or friends, ski, snowboard or just explore the wildlife. Suitable for kite skiers and boarders also!
