Antarctica Expedition - Caro North - 26min Highlight

Iceclimbing, ski mountaineering & sailing

Antarctica expedition of extreme sportswoman Caro North

Antarctica


Iceclimbing, ski mountaineering and sailing the open water for days through the infamous Drake Passage: The 28 years old extreme sports woman Caro North made her way to the very South of our continent for a four weeks expedition – accompanied by an eight-member crew.


The crew had to cope with icy winds, heavy rainfall and consequently poor visibility conditions. The orientation was tough as there is hardly any detailed map material on Antarctica that could have been used even in difficult visibility conditions.

But when weather conditions were good Antarctica turned out to be a paradise for extreme sports: deserted landscapes and snow-capped mountains against a surreal backdrop of ice and sea were waiting to be discovered. The members of the expedition were completely on their own – all they met were penguins and seals on this challenging but at the same time fascinating and inspiring expedition.
