Q: What kind of terrain can I expect during mountaineering?

Antarctica comprises a wide range of different landscapes; rugged, jagged mountains and crevassed glaciers surrounded by a maritime environment. Glaciers are crevassed and dangerous , therefore we will only venture out under the leadership of qualified mountain guides. Fairly easy excursions on snowshoes will be made to see wildlife like bird colonies for those who do not wish to climb the high peaks. Mountaineers climb some accessible mountain peaks to enjoy the fantastic views on the snow covered mountains of Antarctica. These climbs demand good physical fitness.
