Located in the coldest, most windswept continent on earth. The elegant symmetrical pyramids of the Ellsworth Mountains give rise to the complex high-glacial massif of Vinson itself.
Antarctica is a land of dreams; a pristine environment of epic proportions and extremities. For half of the year, when there is 24 hours of daylight, the snow really does shine whiter than white.
From its peak you will be awestruck by the clarity of the views to the nearby peaks of Mount Shinn and Mount Gardner, and far beyond the South Pole. The route taken is a low technical climb, but we are in a potentially extreme environment that will offer a real physical and mental challenge. It is advisable to book at least 6-9 months in advance.
Our Mount Vinson trip starts and finishes in Punta Arenas. Dates shown below are the advertised dates you fly to and from Antarctica, however you will need to arrive in Punta Arenas at least 48hrs (2 days) in advance of these dates (e.g. 4th Dec for 6th Dec). Return International flights should be booked at least three days after your return from Antarctica to allow for possible delays in flying back from Antarctica. If doing a Vinson & Ski Last degree you would already be on Antarctica when other Ski Last Degree only clients arrive.
