Travellers’ Good Buys Compiled By John Rozentals; Global Travel Media

Germany – Town of Bamberg

Aurora Expeditions is expanding its portfolio of Antarctic activities for the 2017/18 season with the introduction of ski touring and snowshoeing.

Antarctic ski touring will offer the experienced and the bold an opportunity to ski near-virgin glacial slopes, traverse remote areas to iceberg-studded bays rarely seen by human eyes, gaze at penguin rookeries and breaching whales in hard-to-access locations, or even follow in Shackleton’s footsteps across South Georgia.

Travelling in small groups with highly experienced mountain ski guides, expeditioners will learn mountaineering and ski-touring skills such as ice-axe and crampon use, roped glacier travel, avalanche procedures and emergency shelter construction.

The two new activities are available on selected 2017-18 itineraries. Expedition fares start from about $11,700 per person, with ski touring starting from an additional $1200 per person and snowshoeing from about an additional $330 per person.
