Company & Camps Overview
Pioneering Luxury in Antarctica
Founded by genuine polar explorers, White Desert Antarctica is the first and only luxury operator taking guests into the interior of Antarctica, whilst remaining committed to environmentally responsible travel.
Our Flagship Luxury Camp
Whichaway, is a collection of cutting edge pods with breathtaking views across the freshwater lakes of the Schirmacher Oasis.
Inspired by astronauts, used by explorers
Futuristic and luxurious, Echo sits in quiet solitude encircled by pitted rock formations. Echo is as close as you can get to feeling like you’re off the planet without leaving Earth.
White Desert World
White Desert World has confirmed its first trip will be hosted in January 2025. Created by the pioneers behind White Desert, White Desert World has been launched under the same ethos of allowing people to explore the wonders of the world in luxury, and utilising bucket list travel experiences to teach guests the importance of preserving and caring for the wilderness of the world.
Adventure for modern pioneers
Our expedition base camp, Wolf’s Fang, is set on the glacier in the mountains of Queen Maud Land, and offers an exhilarating range of activities for adventurous travellers.
South Pole & Emperors
7 – 8 Days
This luxury adventure takes guests into the heart of Antarctica to see the Emperor Penguins.
Then it’s on to the southernmost point on earth – the South Pole!
5 – 6 Days
This trip offers guests unique access to a magnificent penguin colony when the chicks are taking their first steps off their parent’s feet.
Wolf’s Fang Runway is sited on glacial blue ice which, when properly treated and groomed, is entirely suitable for business jets.
The Greatest Day
This is a chance to for guests to experience the real interior of Antarctica in a single day. On arrival you will spend 3 hours on ice, taking a gentle hike from Wolf’s Fang camp to a nearby nunatak.
5 – 6 Days
Once a year, we dedicate one trip to leading guests up a mountain where few humans have ever stood before.
