Nowhere else in the world compares to the vast wilderness of Antarctica. Much of the continent is a desolate and hostile place, frozen year around it contains no permanent human residences and has never been mined. The Antarctic Peninsula which extends north to 63 degrees south has a relatively mild climate. During the short summer season (December to March) temperatures regularly climb above freezing and calm, sunny days are not uncommon. Expedition Engineering offers skiing/ kayaking/ sailing adventures to Antarctica in December and January. The weather and skiing conditions normally line up the best during those months.
