The Antarctica Crossing 2017

In December 2017, Arctic Trucks is going on an adventure to the South Pole by crossing the Antarctica!

The sensation of being in an “untouched” environment is magical. For the first 200 kilometers towards the South Pole, the mountain scenery is unlike any other place on Earth. The top of the Antarctica Plateau looms at an altitude of 3000 meters with the endless white desert visible in every direction. This enormous, mysterious continent is ever-changing, sculpted by high winds, extreme temperature and snowfall. As you are surrounded by the awe-inspiring elements, you can’t help but feel a sense of humility and admiration for the tenacity and the sheer bravery of the early explorers who first stepped upon Antarctica.

As you walk around the South Pole, you traverse both ice and time. All the world’s 24-hour time zones meet at this one point. In just a few steps you can “walk around the world” on ice that is over 2.5 km thick while enjoying 24 hours of daylight.

From the South Pole, the schedule calls for four days of travel back towards Union Glacier.  En route, we will drive through Thiels Corner and to the Ronne Ice Shelf (Constellation Inlet). The return trek completes an on-land crossing of the Antarctica continent—placing you among an elite group of the world’s adventurers.

The Antarctica Plateau is the cleanest area in the world, and we intend to keep it that way. We will make sure we leave nothing behind other than our footprints in the snow.

This is truly an expedition of a lifetime. The voice of adventure is calling – Antarctica awaits.
