Chris Davenport leads a team of skiers up a steep peak in the Antarctic Peninsula.
Lonely and wild, this sparsely populated coastal area sweeps along fine beaches, sand dunes and towering cliffs. Ancient black basalt meets the sea in low headlands and rocky coves, providing a dramatic setting for atmospheric Bamburgh Castle, once the royal seat of the kings of Northumbria. The dunes, marshes and mudflats of the Lindisfarne national nature reserve are one of the best sites in Europe for waders and waterfowl. There is no continuous road or footpath running the length of the coast so contributing to and protecting its seclusion.
