13 Days* Climb Antarctica

 

Travel dates:

17 Dec - 29 Dec 2013
10 Jan - 22 Jan 2014

 

Day 1: Fly to Antarctica

Fly from Chile to Antarctica by private transport jet. We will land on our ice runway and settle in at Union Glacier Camp.

Day 2-3 Acclimatization and Planning

Spend the first couple of days brushing up on skills and getting acclimated to the Antarctic conditions. We will practice ropework, crevasse rescue, navigation, weather observations and polar camping skills. During this period, you will discuss and plan objectives with your guide and pack your equipment ready for departure.

 

Day 4-12: Climbing

After the stunning scenery and unlimited potential, flexibility is the next best thing about Climb Antarctica. What and how you explore is up to you. You can do local day trips and return home each night for dinner at Union Glacier Camp, or set out on a 10-day expedition exploring the many valleys and peaks in the region. There are numerous ridges and faces for you to look out for.  Routes vary from technical ascents and easy snow climbs to magnificent ridge traverses with views over the Ronne Ice Shelf and Polar Plateau.

Each experience is unique. And the opportunities for true exploration and discovery are endless. Only a handful of people have passed this way before you and it is exhilarating to think that you may be the first person to stand on a summit or marvel at the view below.

 

Day 13*: Return to Punta Arenas, Chile

The aircraft from Punta Arenas will arrive with a new group of avid explorers, and you will depart for the final leg of your Antarctic experience. Our ANI staff will meet you at Punta Arenas airport and transfer you to your hotel.
