When the conditions are right, there's no better way to cross the frozen terrain than by wearing snowshoes. Our modern equipment makes it easy to walk on the soft snow, and the elements are usually best during our late spring and early summer Antarctica cruises.
  • Explore a snowy area which are hard to reach without snowshoes

  • Feel the spirit of the early Antarctic explorers who persevered through great frozen expanses

  • Expert guidance by the Expedition Team

  • The thrill of snowshoeing

Snowshoeing pure Arctic landscapes

Feel the spirit of the early Antarctic explorers. Join us for a walk on the wild side with snowshoes. Climb hills, cross glittering white plains, and untouched landscape. Here few humans have set foot. Our experienced Expedition Team will guide you to places with awe-inspiring views. You might observe penguin colonies or even see whales swimming in the sea from above.
