Day trips to Antarctica

There are these once-in-a-lifetime stories that others can just shake their heads about.

More often than not, they are experiences that not everyone can afford and that are far from ever becoming a mass program. But one thing is for certain: they are absolutely unforgettable. A day trip to Antarctica by private jet is one of them.

The airline White Desert Antarctica offers such a trip from/to Cape Town during the summer of the southern hemisphere: The outbound flight lasts five and a half hours, the same duration as the return flight, and in between, the plane lands near the so-called Schirmacher Oasis on the runway of a research station – for souvenir photos with a wow effect. And for six hours packed with excursions into the spectacular surroundings!

Highlight: a gourmet menu with champagne on ice. For those who wish to stay longer, there are alternative programmes lasting several days. Pictures can be found at We are happy to take care of your travel arrangements to the South Pole.
