Ever wondered what a day in the life of a polar explorer is like? Watch the video above to see what Eric Larsen and his two traveling buddies do on a typical day trekking in Antarctica. Somehow, the guys find time and energy to play snow football and make ice castles.

Larsen and his team embarked on the Save the Poles expedition in November to raise awareness about global warming. If successful, they will be the first ever to complete a journey to the North and South Poles and summit Everest in a single year.
