Mountaineering

Mountaineering

If gazing up at spectacular Antarctic icebergs isn't awe-inspiring enough, you can always put your mountaineering skills to work and try climbing one of the ice cliffs. This is a more strenuous excursion for those who would like to explore beyond the normal landing perimeters to reach higher viewpoints.  Expert guides provide detailed briefings and all or most of the necessary equipment. This adds a whole new dimension to your Antarctic adventure.

Guides will endeavor to provide you with the opportunity to climb a mountain around the Antarctic Peninsula. The excursion may take as long as 5 hours and involve some ice-wall climbing.  

To take part in mountaineering it is essential that all participants are in excellent physical shape. Some ships require previous climbing experience and bringing your own mountaineering boots. For safety reasons there is a minimum age requirement (actual age depends on the ship) and climbers must speak English. 

Mountaineering is an additional cost (amount depends on the ship) on most ships and advanced reservations are required, subject to availability at booking.
