The Mission

"To successfully cross the Entire Antarctic Continent starting from the North side of Berkner Island on the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf to the South Pole and then continuing to the Ross Ice Shelf via the Shackleton Glacier. This will be done Solo and without any support including the use of kites and resupply"

The Records We'll Be Breaking Along The Way

Baz The Explorer

“The unsupported crossing of Antarctica is the greatest land-based challenge left in the world today - a journey at the edge of human endurance and one that has denied generations of polar explorers and adventurers. Until now. If there is anyone who can do it Baz Gray can – Royal Marine RSM, cold weather survival expert and one of the toughest in the business.

As Baz would say “It’s now or never. Let’s make it now”

Challenge Antarctica is looking for your help

Elite, edge of endurance expeditions are difficult to fund, with any movement and support in Antarctica being logistically very expensive.
It is very easy to get involved and we are delighted with both large and small sponsors alike. In fact, anyone can get in touch to support at many levels.
