Chimu Adventures is offering snow-lover’s a trip of a lifetime with its ski and sail Antarctica expedition. As one of five guests aboard the sailing yacht, groups have the freedom and flexibility to tailor-make the journey to suit themselves. From skiing virgin slopes to sea kayaking among ice and penguins, a trip with Chimu will fele like no place on earth.
Participants must have a reasonable level of fitness, be capable of skiing blue or black runs in resorts and must undertake some prior training in roped glacier travel and crevasse rescue. Team members must also be equipped with an ‘expedition mentality’ and are invited to help in sailing the yacht, take a watch at sea and generally join in with chores around the yacht from anchoring to domestic duties.
The itinerary is a typical plan, however in the Antarctic plans can and often do change due to weather and ice conditions. The Antarctic Peninsula is a wonderful cruising ground with a smorgasbord of tiny coves and shallow anchorages where one can enjoy the solitude of one of the remotest places on earth, while watching the antics of the local inhabitants: curious leopard seals, playful humpback whales or waddling penguins.
