Chimu Adventures has announced it will conduct commercial trips to ski Antarctica, with a 28-day product launched in Sydney last night.
It is an exclusive itinerary with 6 passengers aboard an expedition yacht that will set sail on November 19 next year.
“There are a lot of peaks that haven’t been used before, and obviously no lifts,” Chimu Adventures co-founder Greg Carter said.
“That opportunity for select clients to go down and experience something as wonderful as this is great.”
“What we love about it is it gives us the opportunity to add to our Antarctic range… we work with 24 ships,”Carter added.
There is a three day training program prior to departure in Ushuaia, Argentina and fitness requirements and ski ability thresholds apply.
“For the adventurous at heart, climbing a virgin summit is a breathtaking prospect. And to then attach your skis and be the first person to ski down from the summit is just exciting beyond words,” Chimu Adventures co-founder Chad Carey said.
Lead by a highly experienced skipper, mate and expedition leader, this epic adventure is priced at $35,205, and includes training, safety gear, use of satellite phones and email, accommodation in Ushuaia, skis, kayaks, sleds, mountaineering equipment and meals.
