Travel into the heart of the Great White Continent by private jet and stay within luxury eco-camps as you explore the beautiful South Pole, with a maximum of 12 guests at a time.

After landing on the ancient blue ice of Wolf’s Fang Runway, guests are whisked away to Whichaway, our partner's flagship luxury retreat with breath-taking views across the freshwater lakes of the Schirmacher Oasis or, to Echo, their newly launched space-inspired camp in the imposing mountains of Queen Maud Land.

Departing from Cape Town, guests travel in luxury aboard a private jet across the vast expanses of the Southern Ocean. During the 5-hour flight to reach Wolf’s Fang Runway, they will pass into the Antarctic Circle and 24 hours of continuous daylight.

Our partner has two types of accommodation options, Whichaway and Echo.

Whichaway is situated at the base of a 60m / 200ft ice fall on the Schirmacher Oasis, where the glaciers of the Antarctic Ice Sheet meet the sea ice of the Novolazarevskaya Nivl Ice Shelf. Surrounded by stunning rock and ice formations, guests are in the perfect location for exploration and adventure – or simply to relax and enjoy the peaceful solitude of the Great White Continent.

After a 5-hour flight from Cape Town aboard an Airbus A340 (or similar) or private jet, this is the perfect place to disconnect from the hubbub of the modern world and tune into the great outdoors. Surrounded by freshwater lakes, a 60m (200ft) icefall, blue rivers and crystal caves, Whichaway is the warm and welcoming base for once-in-a-lifetime experiences ranging from ice-climbing and abseiling to yoga, saunas and meditation.
