Last Degree to the North Pole
From Longyearbyen to the ‘drifting’ Arctic Ice Station Barneo to one degree out from the Geographic North Pole. Ski and camp on the top of the world, or fly-in (direct) for a one day excursion to the North Pole.
Now more than ever…
Recent climate studies show evidence of warmer temperatures and sustained ice melt in the Arctic. Perhaps in the not-so-distant future, the days of skiing to the North Pole will be a thing of the past.
Last Degree to the South Pole and Vinson Massif
Travel from Punta Arenas, Chile to Patriot Hills, a basecamp in the Antarctic Interior. Ski the last degree and camp at the bottom of the world, or fly-in (direct) for a one day excursion to the South Pole.
Amazon Expedition-Ice Axe Foundation
Explore the Brazilian Amazon with the Ice Axe Foundation’s Education program. Leave from Manaus, Brazil and travel up the Rio Negro to the town of Barcelos.
