Antarctica group expedition for Skiers
There are skiing options on several of our expeditions each season.

Antarctica group expedition for kayakers and scuba divers
WILDFOOT offer many expeditions where groups can partake in sea kayaking and scuba diving, making your Antarctica journey even more exciting and exhilarating.
Experience the thrill of paddling through the icy water, drifting by towering icebergs and lose yourself in the solitude of the pristine Antarctic waters or dive into the magical underworld of this largely unexplored paradise.
