Antarctica. The very word conjures up visions of vast polar ice sheets, covered in snow and swept by blizzards. Of alpine mountains so inaccessible that nearly all of them are unclimbed. When we think of Antarctica we think of a pristine, yet fragile environment, and we want to go.
Nobody is disappointed with their impressions of this magical continent. It feels like a rare treat and a privilege to go. High Mountain Guides director Rob Jarvis has spent 2 years of his life living, climbing and guiding ‘on the ice’ and can pass on some of the experience and enthusiasm gained from this to people looking for private guiding or a training course prior to going South.
