If Antarctica were music it would be Mozart. Art, and it would be Michelangelo. Literature and it would be Shakespeare. And yet it is something even greater: the only place on earth that is still as it should be. May we never tame it.”
Stepping onto the ice for the first time can literally take your breath away. The incredible vista of the Drygalski range offers an awe-inspiring start to your expedition.
You will spend the day amongst these giants, learning the basics of cross-country skiing and summiting a small peak, before a short flight to our luxury camp.
On this four-day adventure, we offer you the opportunity to learn from one of the most experienced and accomplished polar explorers of our time – Ben Saunders.
Detailed four Days Antarctica Safari
The flight to Antarctica is 5 hours, crossing the thousands of icebergs spread over the Southern ocean. Halfway through the flight we cross into the polar circle and will experience 24 hours of continuous daylight.
Landing on the specialist ice runway, you will be surrounded by the Wolf’s Fang range, a true spectacle of the continent. We spend the afternoon amongst kilometer-high monoliths of rock, before connecting to Whichaway camp.
Ben will draw on his polar experience to teach you how to survive, and even be comfortable, in Antarctica.
Our first adventure begins at the base of a stunning ‘Nunatak’ mountain. With crampons on your feet and ice-axes in your hands, you will scale a vertical wall of ice and ‘top out’ on the summit.
Returning from the summit, you will be collected by a fleet of Arctic truck 6×6 vehicles and discover just how capable these machines are in this environment. Learn to drive on incredible routes over seemingly impossible terrain!
Tonight, we camp out! To prepare you, Ben will help you pack your sled and ensure you are ready for one of the most remote campsites on earth. We will cross-country ski (or walk) into the mountains, passing huge cliff faces, wind scoops, and iridescent blue ice.
As you close the zip on the door of your tent, you will experience what it is like to be a true explorer.
We delve into the ice tunnels and caves near Whichaway camp, where the white landscape betrays nothing of the extraordinary environment just beneath the surface. Created by meltwater, the caves extend for hundreds of meters and are a magical place to explore.
Later that day, we climb across a 200ft rock face that overlooks the ice waves. While the walk is not technically difficult it might get the adrenalin pumping and will prove the perfect way to complete this unique experience.
