Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live the adventures of an Antarctic explorer? Or perhaps the expeditions of a scientist conducting their research in the south pole? Maybe the wildlife, climate or lifestyle of the most southern place on the planet is something that’s always fascinated you, but is just too out of reach. Very few are fortunate enough to travel to Antarctica, even fewer to experience what it’s truly like to live there. With this VR adventure, that’s all about to change… Welcome to your Antarctic Experience.
