THE WHITE LANDS, THE DARKEST WATERS AND THE CLEAREST SKIES
The most remote place on earth. The driest, coldest and windiest continent on the planet. One of the most fascinating destinations that exist. The adventure begins just trying to reach it and continues every minute through its waters, snow, colonies of animals adapted to their environment, frozen lands and the largest glaciers in the world.
CLIMBING MOUNT VINSON
ANTARCTICA - 17 days
The Ellsworth Mountains are so remote and isolated, that without containing within them the highest mountain in Antarctica, Mount Vinson, they would not have been visited by more than the occasional expedition. Antarctica is the last totally wild region of our planet and it remains completely virgin. Mount Vinson was first climbed in 1966. The normal route is quite clear, and not very difficult, with a few 40º snow slopes. To date, just over 200 people have promoted him. As an expedition it can be similar compared to the last three thousand meters of an "eight thousand", with temperatures and demands, but without the altitude.
ANTARCTICA - 11 days
For more than two centuries, the incomparable beauty of the 'White Continent' has attracted scientists and adventurers. Today this largely intact natural environment is more accessible to a new generation of intrepid explorers. You can visit the Antarctic Peninsula and the South Shetland Islands comfortably aboard the Ushuaia ship. Since the southern spring, large numbers of birds and marine mammals are concentrated in large colonies, and together with the incessant sunlight makes exploring this incomparable ecosystem a unique experience.
