Hello Friends and Family!

Greetings from Punta Arenas! Our participants arrived safe and sound.

We checked out all the participants gear and did some last minute shopping trips. We made new friends and got to explore the city. The Chilean guides provided interesting information about the surrounding environment and how
to stay healthy. We formed rope teams that we will be hiking with for the
entire week and received snow shoes that we will be using on the island. We
will be leaving bright and early tomorrow (12/29) to King George Island.
The weather update is clear and anticipated to be good for the week...but
things can change quickly in Antarctica! More from King George Island

Un Abrazo,

Team Antarctica
