This unique Expedition has the goal of arriving to the south pole unsupported, which means without any help or food caches from its beginning to its completion, in other words a clean self sufficient trip without external support an in the purest style of Polar Exploration.
We will start from Patriot Hills at parralel 80 South, from there we have 1000 Kilometers (600 miles) of arduous crossing to our final destination: The South Pole, by definition one of the most remote places on earth and a synonimous of remoteness, adventure and purity.
We will travel carrying everything on our specially designed Sledges and we will use skis for transportation. We have 60 days to accomplish our goal and weather depending this should be enough time to successfully arrive to the South Pole, unsupported.
It was not until 1985, when Adventure Network International started providing full logistical support for expeditions to the Antarctic interior, that South Pole crossings were considered more feasible.
AVENTURAS PATAGONICAS South Pole Crossing Expeditions will be supported by ANI aircrafts. We at AVENTURAS PATAGONICAS are pioneers at this kind of trips. Besides the high investment and time involved in committing to this trip, is the challenge of traversing this very remote continent, one of the coldest climates on earth, with extremes temperatures. Trip members must have experience with winter mountaineering and be in excellent physical condition.
From Punta Arenas a return home is easily accomplished after a simple connection via Santiago. Adventure Network will take care of our airline connection and necessarily changes as they have always done in the past since it is impossible to predict the exact return date from the South Pole.
