Try snowshoeing in Antarctica and make your way through pristine snow fields, under the careful guidance of the expert Expedition Team.

Antarctica, the continent of ice and snow, is a world so big, visitors can’t help but feel small. When we land in this immense white and blue landscape, our limits are mostly defined by the difficulty to move about in the deep snow.

Now, imagine venturing farther into the white expanse that is usually untouchable by hikers! Let´s go snowshoeing! Snowshoes simply spread your weight over a larger surface, keeping you from sinking into the snow.

Instantly you can walk across snow fields, climb hills, and cross glittering white plains that were totally out of reach before. Hike where no one has ever hiked before. Make your way through pristine snow fields. Expand your limits! Feel the spirit of the early explorers who crossed these great expanses just like us now!

Equipment has improved greatly since the days of the early explorers. Our snowshoes are top-of-the-line, easy to use, safe, and suitable for all capable hikers. Snowshoeing here is probably one of the most intense adventures you can have on this most remote of places on Earth. Our experienced guides are more than happy to share this amazing world with you.
