Over 100 years ago, the first man to reach the South Pole, Roald Amundsen, set up base at what is now known as the Amundsen Coast Camp. And this journey lets you in on what that trek might have looked like … except with trucks.
In a fleet of 6x6 polar-equipped trucks fitted with expert guides, the trek goes shore to shore across western Antarctica popping in at the Pole and the Ross Ice Shelf via the Leverett Glacier. Safe to say you’ll be in seasoned hands. The company’s partner Arctic Trucks has clocked nearly 150,000 miles on the Antarctic Ice Cap in the past few seasons including their work with the well-documented Walking With The Wounded charity South Pole expedition.
Rest assured there’s plenty of non-truck time for getting wild. Activities along the way include cross-country skiing, heading up to the peak of Antarctica’s highest mountain, Mt. Vinson and snowmobiling from Union Camp.
