Ski touring trip to Antarctica

Great ski tour trip to the Antarctic Peninsula by ship

The Antarctic Peninsula, which by Antarctic standards is relatively easily accessible, has an astonishing array of creatures and an unforgettable landscape. There is an unbelievable variety of penguins, seabirds, seals, and whales; icebergs float by the ship. Historic research stations remind us of the great arctic explorers. And most importantly: the endless possibilities for unforgettable ski tours!

FAQs

Ski bag as additional luggage | sports luggage

You will need a ski bag for all ski touring trips. This is reserved in addition to the flight ticket. The surcharge varies from € 40 - € 70 per ski bag. We will discuss all these details with you in the packing list you will receive after booking.

Is insurance included in the trip?

Our tours do not include insurance cover as most guests already have private cover. Please also check prior to the tour if your insurance covers the booked trip. We will be happy to provide you with an insurance offer for the booked period.

Our recommendation - ski boots in the hand luggage?

In addition to your normal hand luggage, ski boots should be carried in your hand luggage. The reason is delayed luggage! You might be able to organise skis in your destination country, but boots that fit are practically impossible.

Ahead of each ski tour, we discuss all open questions and details of the planned tour individually.
