Glamping at the end of the EarthAntarctica
After getting stuck in a storm on a 1850-kilometre scramble across Antarctica, a team of explorers decided to set up a camp with everything they lacked during those four gruelling days. Situated next to an ice cliff, deep in the interior where few travellers ever venture, Whichaway Camp offers six luxurious domes, where guests lounge on leather and nosh on gourmet food rather than voyage rations.
Its zero-impact policy means waste is flown out, emissions offset and the 24-hour sunlight harnessed for power. Away from base you’ll visit ice caves and 6000 penguins in Atka Bay, and even jet to the South Pole if you choose.
- Being one of the few people to explore the majestic lands of Antarctica
- Devouring gourmet fare prepared and cooked by the chef-in-residence
- Witnessing ice formations and penguin colonies
- Kite-skiing through untouched powder
- It’s got a mighty hefty price tag and the basic experience doesn’t take you down to the South Pole
- Everywhere else will seem a bit underwhelming after you’ve been to Antarctica
- Double bed
- Writing desk
- Wash area
- Lounge and dining area
Nine-night trips start at around US$48,680.
