RECENT EXPEDITIONS INCLUDE
EXPEDITION ICE MAIDEN
A female team of British soldiers are currently attempting to cross Antarctica coast-to-coast via the South Pole.
It will be a first for an all-female group, and an attempt to prove that women have the mental strength and physical endurance to operate in the most hostile environment on earth.
The route: The team’s route is approximately 1,700km. Covering 20-30km each day, they expect the expedition to take around 70 days in total. They will need to carry everything they need for each 600km leg, in order to survive.
'We’ve all found that inner confidence and strength. It’s great if people are inspired but I’m a normal person. I’m not this crazy, active all the time, person. I just saw a challenge and set myself to it.' - Expedition leader, Major Nicola Weatherill
