Intrepid Travel Announces New Antarctic Adventure from the Travel Lab

New arctic adventures offered from Intrepid Travel.

    /24-7PressRelease/ - BOULDER, CO, June 18, 2008 - Intrepid Travel's new research and development division, The Travel Lab, announces the launch of its new luxury Antarctic adventure; an expedition to the remote mountains of Antarctica.

Travelers on this Antarctic adventure will explore Antarctica by foot and by plane as they follow in the footsteps of the great explorers, Scott and Amundsen. They will soar over the largely unexplored Orvin mountain ranges in a turbo prop DC3 airplane, abseil into open crevasses, explore ice caves and get close to Adelie Penguins.

The luxury Antarctic adventure begins when travelers depart Cape Town aboard a private jet. They will watch night turn to day as they cross over the Antarctic Circle and into the land of the midnight sun. After landing on a specially prepared ice runway, travelers settle in at a luxury eco camp - the first of its kind in Antarctica. Adventurers will gaze out their tent window at incredible views over a massive ice cliff and down to the immense blue ice waves on the horizon.

The highlight of the luxury Antarctic adventure is Intrepid's expedition into the Orvin Range. Adventurers are given the chance to experience what an journey to the Antarctic once meant. They will have the opportunity to ski in virgin snow, try some technical ice and rock climbing, and will learn the basics of crevasse rescue.
Intrepid's luxury Antarctic adventure itinerary includes:

•A two-hour aerial tour over the Orvin Range
•Living in the tents of early explorers
•Rappel over huge ice cliffs
•Observe penguins in their natural habitat
•Wander between mighty ice blocks and sleep in igloos
•Camp at Dronning Maud Land

This luxury Antarctic adventure is a once in a lifetime opportunity for those travelers looking for a new and unusual adventure into the wild.

Antarctic adventure travelers with Intrepid will experience one of the most exclusive and most rarely seen locations on the planet. The Remote Mountain Expedition adventure lasts for 11 days and costs $44,350. To learn more about exciting Antarctic adventure travel visit:
