Antarctica is the biggest wilderness on earth and still the least visited of all the continents. In the last 100 years since Antarctic exploration began still only around 350 people have ever made the overland journey from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole. With Expeditions365 you can progress from partaking in one of our Polar Expedition Training Courses to undertaking a full South Pole Expedition on Antarctica.
Coast to Pole
If time is not an issue and you are looking for the ultimate polar challenge then perhaps the ultimate challenge of skiing from the coast to the Pole is for you. This 50 day South Pole expedition will see you skiing from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole hauling everything you need to survive behind you in a sled. This expedition requires a big commitment physically, emotionally and financially, but the rewards of that commitment are huge. This is a journey that will change you forever. Expeditions’ Hannah McKeand is the most experienced Antarctic guide in the world, and you literally could not be in better hands for advice on how to make your polar dreams a reality.
In an approximate three week time period you can fly from southern Chile to the Antarctic base camp at Union Glacier and from there up to 89 degrees south. The following 7-10 days are spent skiing across the remote and high polar plateau, 60 nautical miles to the Geographic South Pole. This is a challenging expedition in one of the remotest places on earth.
