Chris Davenport leads a team of skiers up a steep peak in the Antarctic Peninsula.
Namib Desert, Namibia
In a list of famous deserts, the Namib falls pretty low. However, this is thought to be the oldest desert in the world and is also home to the planet’s most spectacular sand dunes (Dune Seven reaches as high as 380 metres, making it the world’s highest). The desert is 1,200 miles long but averages a meagre 70 miles wide.
