The North and south poles are the last unspoiled areas on earth.
The North pole (Arctica) and South pole (Antarctica) are the last truly unspoilt regions of our planet. It is literally nowhere. We, Arnaud de Wilde and Wim De Backer, are planning an expedition to the summit of Antarctica!
Not just any expedition, but a serious Sea to Summit challenge. A grueling journey that will lead us from the frigid Antarctic Weddel sea over mountains and glaciers and endless ice fields, to the summit of the highest mountain on the continent: Mount Vinson. A four thousand eight hundred ninety-two meter high mountain of snow and ice.
Experience it! Follow us on our journey across the ice. Check where we are. See what we see. It will all be possible.

A route, never travelled before by a Dutch/Belgium team of only two!
Expedition proARCTICA was scheduled from November 2017 until January 2018. We have set a deadline, January 31 2017 to meet the financial requirements. Unfortunately we did not make it.
