Q: What is mountaineering?

Mountaineering is a special activity option on selected voyages in Antarctica on board m/v Plancius and m/v Ortelius (“Basecamp”) marked “M” on the tour program. The mountaineering activity is not to be considered technical climbing but will often consist of a glacier hikes under highly qualified supervision. This is a more strenuous activity for mountaineers who wish to walk beyond the shore radius in order to reach higher grounds and view highlighted points.
