My goal is to ski under 30 days to set the new speed record for women

My journey to the South Pole

Distance from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole: 1130 km

Ascent: From sea level to 2,835 metres. This means uphill all the way to the Pole. 

2,835 meters above sea level feels like 3,500-4,000 metres at the equator/Himalaya.

Food: 6,000 kcal per day (burning 8-10,000 kcal per day)

Temperature: Between -15 and -45°C (can feel like -70°C taking the windchill into account)

The Katabatic winds follow the terrain from the center and towards the sea, which means headwinds – all the way

The historic polar explorer Roald Amundsen called the snow on Antarctica “fish glue“ as it's extremely dry. This means extremely bad skiing conditions

I'll fly from Punta Arenas (Chile) to Union Glacier (Antarctica) and from there to the start point Hercules Inlet

Tracking: Live tracking and online updates along the way

Communication: Satellite phone, GPS / Tracker and compass

Only eight women have completed a solo and unsupported expedition to the South Pole

" I'm deeply driven to achieve my goals, always giving it my all, even when it feels like
the odds are against me. I feel most alive when I'm stepping out of my comfort zone. 

 

I'm dedicated, organized, and face challenges head-on, especially
when I will be navigating solo in the world's most extreme places.

 

The record attempt is not just about physical endurance; it's about staying sharp mentally too.
No matter what comes my way, I will stay calm and ensure that all of my energy is put to good use."

- Gina 

THE EXPEDITION IS MORE THAN A RECORD ATTEMPT

I understand the impact my adventures and social media presence have on inspiring others to chase their dreams, embrace change, and connect with nature. In a world where mental health is a growing concern, I strongly believe in the healing power of nature and physical activity.

​I want to be a role model for children and teenagers. To inspire them to have an active lifestyle, reach for their dreams and dare to face their fears. I'm excited about involving schools in my expedition, inviting students to follow along and I'm planning to visit classrooms after the expedition to share my experiences.

Moreover, I'm passionate about promoting equality, especially as a young woman. I'm determined to show that women are just as capable as men in taking on great challenges. This commitment to gender equality is woven into my adventures, as I'm using my platform to advocate for women's empowerment and equal opportunities.

The Sustainable Development Goal number 5 on gender equality is guiding me, and I talk about the importance of working for these aims in my lecures.
