Vehicles opening the possibilities of a continent
Polar regions have long been accessible only to explorers pushing the limits of fitness and endurance. Now you can journey across what Roald Amundsen called a “fairy tale” landscape without leaving home for years at a time or training for longer. Our expeditions join with a rich history of explorers from Sir James Clark Ross and Roald Amundsen to Sir Vivian Fuchs and Sir Edmund Hillary.
Our expeditions are trucks supported and range from family friendly journeys to record-breaking expeditions.
Drive to the end of the compass. The south pole has called to explorers for centuries. Standing at the pole, on the very axis of our planet is where theoretical knowledge about the planet and our place in universe is played out in reality: there is one sunset and one sunrise per year; all timezones converge; the compass point points straight down; and you can walk around the planet in a short stroll. A highlight of the expedition will be reaching a place with fewer annual visitors than Mount Everest!
Embark on the adventure of a lifetime as you cross the 7th continent via the South Pole! The journey takes us through the coldest, highest, and driest area in the world. A paradise of challenges for expeditioners and adventurers alike. The first successful crossing of Antarctica was completed by Sir Vivian Fuchs supported by Sir Edmund Hillary in Massey Fergusen vehicles from the Ronne to the Ross Ice Shelf. The geographical South Pole, at the bottom of the world, is where every time zone merges in one point and there is only a single sunrise and sunset a year. This is what it’s all about!
