WALKING FROM MONGOLIA TO EUROPE
Mongolian adventurer Baigalmaa Norjmaa is walking with a camel caravan from Mongolia to Europe. The route will take the Steppes to the West team through Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany, France and the UK.
Go to Mongolia: Head to Ulaanbaatar, then go out to the Steppes to stay in a ger camp and enjoy a camel ride of your own. If you go there in July, you can even visit the Naadam festival – Mongolia’s version of the Olympics. Don’t forget to enjoy a few buuz (steamed buns) and a glass of airag before you leave.
SKIING ANTARCTICA COAST TO COAST
The Ice Maiden team from the UK is the first all-female team to cross Antarctica from coast to coast by skis. The 1,000 mile expedition took the team of six soldiers 62 days to complete.
Go to Antarctica: Sail through Drake’s Passage to get your first look at the White Continent. From here you can spend your time exploring Antarctica. Climb aboard a kayak or inflatable Zodiac boat and get up close and personal to the wildlife.
