Exploring Antarctica has always been “exclusive” simply because it’s hard to get to, the weather can be harsh, and thankfully, we humans haven’t developed it too much…yet.
And there are in fact, several different levels of luxury one can employ to “explore” Antarctica. But now that two highly experienced luxury Tokyo escorts polar expedition companies have teamed up to offer a 24-day tour they simply call “Ultimate Antarctica,” they may have organized the most exclusive (and socially distanced) vacation in the world. The unique 24-day trip is the result of collaboration between two highly experienced polar tour companies—White Desert and Cookson Adventures—which were both founded by record-breaking polar explorers.
The journey starts with New Year’s Eve celebrations at the One & Only Cape Town under the backdrop of Table Mountain. Then guests are flown directly to Whichaway Oasis, White Desert’s newly relaunched eco-camp in the remote interior of Antarctica onboard the companies Gulfstream 550 jet. From those luxury accommodations, they will explore iridescent blue ice tunnels and visit a colony of over 28,000 emperor penguins and their chicks at the “bottom of the world.” The highlight of the adventure flying to the Geographic South Pole onboard the Gulfstream.
