The ultimate challenge reaching the South Pole

Experience first-hand the challenges faced by early explorers as you journey by ski across the vast Antarctic landscape that is at the same time harsh, unforgiving and unimaginably beautiful.

Are you up for a serious challenge ?

  • Ski 60 nautical miles and reach the South Pole through your own efforts and the support of your team. Complete this polar challenge to stand at the most southerly point on Earth!

    The essence of polar exploration is captured in this incredible two-week, expedition style trip. Experience first-hand the challenges faced by early explorers as you journey by ski across the vast Antarctic landscape that is at the same time harsh, unforgiving and unimaginably beautiful.

  • Ski Last Degree is the ideal choice for those who want the serious challenge of a polar expedition but do not have the time or resources to commit to a full-length expedition from the coast. The journey begins at 89° South, where you are dropped by ski aircraft. You travel by ski and with sleds the last 60 nautical miles (111km) to the most southerly point on Earth – the Geographic South Pole.

  • The rewards for your efforts are tangible – the bonds of friendship built through the shared challenge and the knowledge that you have arrived at the ultimate destination, the South Pole, through your own effort and determination.

Base Camp Accommodations


Union Glacier Camp


The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming at our main Antarctic camp at Union Glacier.
You’ll find roomy, double occupancy sleeping tents; a spacious dining hall; fresh delicious meals; and a spectacular setting. You’ll be surprised how comfortable Antarctica can be! Our full-service camp is designed for Antarctic conditions and with best environmental practices in mind. It operates during the Antarctic summer (November through January) and is dismantled at the end of each season.


 


 


 


 


Field Camps


Our Gould Bay (Emperor Penguin), ski expedition, climbing and other field camps are more basic. Equipment must be lightweight and portable, yet still strong enough to withstand Antarctic conditions. We sleep in mountaineering-style tents and eat a combination offresh-frozen meals, prepared by our chefs at Union Glacier; and de-hydrated meals.
