Now that the summer is starting in Antarctica, there are many trips to choose from – climbing, skiing, even running.
Like this marathon:
“Join the most unusual 'Marathon Race' in the world. Run over a groomed snow track around the mountains by Patriot Hills base camp. Refreshment, warm-up stations, and guides and medics on snowmobiles will support you.”
Running the marathon is only $16K from Punta Arenas, Chile. Or, for something more strenuous and a little less reasonably priced, you can arrange a climb in Queen Maud Land.
The problem is the crowds:
“With tourism still growing along the Antarctic Peninsula groundings and tourist ships stuck in ice are becoming an annual happening.”
