National Geographic explores new frontiers

National Geographic explores new frontiers
27 Dec 2013

Twenty of the world's top adventurers have shared their new frontiers with budding explorers. 

Part of National Geographic's Ultimate Adventure Bucket List 2014, the selection comprises incredible adventures enjoyed across the world. 

Paul Nicklen, a photographer and polar conservationist, recommends exploring South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, situated more than one thousand miles east of the tip of South America and home to penguins, elephant seals and albatross. 

Backcountry skiing in Alaska is the activity to try according to snowboarder Jeremy Jones, as there is 302 million acres of public land to explore and only 730,000 residents - meaning there are plenty of unspoilt snowscapes to enjoy. 

'There are so many unridden mountains in Alaska, and a plane is a great way to get into them,' he explained. 

'You get dropped off on these high glaciers where first descents and dream lines are totally achievable for mid-level backcountry snowboarders.'ADNFCR-408-ID-801676504-ADNFCR
