Antarctica Ice Maiden


In November 2017, six British women are aiming to become the first all-female team to ski coast-to-coast across Antarctica.

No team of women, from any nation, has completed this formidable challenge. It is the ultimate opportunity to show that women have the mental strength and physical endurance to operate in the most hostile environment on earth.

The Ice Maiden team will cover 1,700km using muscle-power alone, pulling sledges and battling temperatures of -50°C and wind speeds of over 60mph during their three-month journey.  Unsupported, and with only two resupply points along the route, they will carry all the supplies and equipment needed to survive for up to 600km at a time.

The Ice Maiden team are all serving in the British Army or Army Reserve and are following in the footsteps of Felicity Aston’s record-breaking solo Antarctic crossing in 2012.

The team will be using our new extreme chargers to keep their devices such as GPS and phones charged during this epic crossing.
