ANTARCTIC PENINSULA

65°39.115 S 64°12.834 W

The Antarctic Peninsula is the mecca of steep riding and getting there is the ultimate adventure! The traverse of the Drake Passage is the most severe passage in the world, so be ready… Once you are down there, you have 2000 km of coastline fjords to pick your line from. Penguins, whales and seals everywhere, you are surrounded by immense ice palaces…it’s incredibly beautiful.
