After having led the previons Kaspersky expedition (Kaspersky Commonwealth Antarctic Expedition) back in 2009-2010, Briton Felicity Aston is going back to the Antarctic. This time she has chosen to be alone and to cross the entire continent.

As the expedition website is not entirely finished yet, we do not know exactly what itinerary this women adventurer is going to take to cross Antarctica.

We only know that she will be travelling through Punta Arenas and therefore flying to ALE/ANI Union Glacier (79° 45'S 083° 14'W) new camp site, 70 km north-west of old Patriot Hills touristic station.

Her homepage says that it will take Aston 70 days in the toughest weather conditions to sky across the Antarctic. She will meet of course severe obstacles along her way and she will be alone.

The 33-year-old explorer will share her experiences as the first woman in the world to ski solo across Antarctica to the South Pole along a route never skied before. She is no stranger to the Antarctic and spent three years living and working as a meteorologist there before breaking more records by leading a women-only team to the South Pole.
