SOLO EXPEDITION IN ANTARCTICA

THE MISSION

Solo-ski without assistance to the South Pole.

Go beyond my limits by making a big dream come true.
Break down stereotypes that are unfavorables to women.

Take on one of the most inaccessible places in the world, paving the way for future women adventurer.

 

THE ULTIMATE CHALLENGE

In November 2022, I will devote all my energy to starting an expedition, the most important of my career. This unprecedented adventure has nothing to do with my past exploits. I will test my fitness, my stamina and also my determination and mental strength. This great project will consist in reaching the geographical South Pole without support.
