Adventure travel website of the week -Adventure Network International.
Ranking in complexity with the exploration of space, private sector travel to the interior of Antarctica used to be virtually impossible. Nature had imposed a succession of formidable logistical barriers on the icy continent to all who dared to explore. Some, such as natgeoadventure’s Wandering Bear (http://natgeoadventure.tv/uk/User.aspx?userId=10966) have been close, sailing the Southern Ocean, but it was not until 1985 that Adventure Network International (ANI) was the first company to break through those barriers, allowing tourists, scientists and expeditions to journey to Antarctica and to fulfil lifetime dreams.
ANI is still the only organisation providing logistics, expedition support and tours to the interior of Antarctica including flights to the continent and the South Pole; guided climbs of Vinson Massif and Antarctica’s highest peaks, and support for private Antarctic expeditions.
The company offer amazing expeditions to Antarctica, including your chance to see Emperor Penguins at the height of their breeding season, as well as adventures that include snowmobile trips, trekking, light climbing, camping and skiing. For the real adrenaline-junkies and hardcore adventurists they also offer the opportunity of doing a marathon in Antarctica – the Patriot Hills Marathon and the opportunity to climb Vinson Massif, which lies on the southern part of the main ridge of the Sentinel Range and is one of the Seven Summits – the highest peaks on each continent.
