The vast, wide-open landscape of Antarctica is an epic family adventure waiting to happen. White Desert Antarctica tours offer a variety of trips boasting the best in luxury camping, adventure tourism and unique itineraries through the incredibly beautiful landscape.

Opt for the Emperors and South Pole adventure for an eight-day trip spotting Emperor Penguins and a flight to the Geographical South Pole.

Beginning in Cape Town, South Africa, — which you may never want to leave — White Desert tours lead guests through a quick safety briefing. Upon arrival, White Desert Antarctica experts then go over brief safety lessons and updated weather reports while welcoming travelers. White Desert staff assists travelers with last-minute preparations, questions and concerns before their flight to Antarctica the next day.

On the five-hour flight from Cape Town, look out over the Antarctic Circle, showcasing 24 hours of continuous sunshine. Upon landing in Antarctica, check out your unique accommodations at Whichaway Camp — resembling something from a futuristic spy movie.

Each state-of-the-art pod sleeps two and provides a washroom, toilet and writing desk. The remaining pods make up the camp, complete with a shower pod, full kitchen and three centralized pods making up the lounge, reception area and dining room. Relax and enjoy the cuisine prepared by the award-winning chef amid the old-world, opulent interior.

Field guides suggest a wide variety of daily excursions from relaxing activities to high-intensity adventures. Take an easy trek through ice tunnels or head toward the coast to observe gigantic ice wave formations.

For aspiring polar explorers, visit local scientists and opt for some ice rock climbing or kite-skiing. No matter the excursion, White Desert’s expert guides enable guests to push as far as they want to go all while ensuring the safety and warmth of guests.

Prepare to be blown away by the incredible sight of the Emperor Penguin colony at Atka Bay. After a two-hour flight there, observe more than 6,000 penguins marching around — some, completely unafraid of humans, come within a few feet of visitors.

Just one of White Desert’s excursion results in a full-service, luxury adventure through epic ice, mountains and wildlife. The opportunities are endless for travelers with a keen interest in the truly unique and unforgettable. With adventure opportunities ranging from $10,000–78,000 per person, this is one luxury expedition of a lifetime.
