Shackleton Alpine Crossing
On one of our South Georgia voyages, a small band of adventurous souls will attempt to repeat the epic crossing of Ernest Shackleton and trek for up to three days from King Haakon Bay to Stromness. The crossing distance is 35 to 50 kilometres depending on the route, and involves crossing large, heavily crevassed glaciers and alpine passes.
This is an extreme mountain environment that must be treated with great caution. Participants therefore require a suitable level of alpine climbing and trekking experience to undertake this activity. Most of the journey is on glaciers and requires travelling with ropes so knowledge of glacier travel techniques is required.
If you have any queries about your suitability for the crossing please contact our friendly sales team.
