How fit and experienced do I have to be?
If you can comfortably ski a black run in your resort back home, and are fit enough to walk up a sand dune at the beach then you are capable enough to ski or board the Antarctic Peninsula. You do not even have to be a skier or snowboarder to join this trip as there is also the option to kayak, trek and zodiac excursions. Or just relax and take it all in from the luxury of the ship.
