We’ve tamed and colonised most of the world, but one vast stretch of the planet remains beyond our grasp: Antarctica. This frozen, otherworldly continent at the end of the earth has never been permanently occupied by man.
But you can experience it for 24 hours, thanks to the Ellerman House concierge team who has collaborated with White Desert – the only company in the world to fly into the interior of Antarctica in a private jet to bring its guests a carbon-neutral experience that is as luxurious as it is adventurous.
After arriving in Cape Town and enjoying a few days at Ellerman House, you will be briefed and ready to embark on the 24-hour round trip to Antarctica on a private Gulfstream jet, which includes about eight hours of ground time, culminating in a gourmet Champagne dinner. If you don’t think 24 hours is enough time to explore the icy wilderness, then consider the four-day experience based at Whichaway Camp, a wind- and solar-powered temporary camp on the edge of a 200-foot ice cliff.
