Est. 2005


Founded by genuine polar explorers, White Desert continues to expand whilst staying true to our principles of adventure and environmentally responsible travel

How It All Started
The vision for White Desert started on an expedition in 2004, when we were stuck in a little tent waiting out a storm. All of us were feeling a little defeated. For four days the storm had raged outside. We were getting low on supplies and – even worse – starting to tell the same stories...
Whichaway Camp
Whichaway camp is totally unique and the perfect base from which to start your adventure. Having won the World Travel Awards five times, the camp is also designed with a minimal environmental footprint in mind.

Our Fleet
Being the only company in the world to fly business jets to Antarctica, our emphasis has always been on luxury and safety.

That same commitment extends to the ski-equipped aircraft that we use in the interior.

We are the only air operator on the entire continent to be fully carbon neutral.
Wolf's Fang Runway
Using specialist techniques and machinery, we have created a runway that is uncompromising in its safety and with minimal delays.

With experienced pilots flying over 25 flights a season, it is now regarded as a well-established and reliable airbridge between Africa and Antarctica.
We recognise that Antarctica is a pristine wilderness and make stringent efforts to ensure that our footprint is absolutely minimal.

With an ENDS environmental award and carbon neutral since 2007, we are continually working to improve the ways in which we interact with this incredible environment.

Our Team
A company is nothing without its people and during season, our team swells to over 80 staff heralding from 16 different nationalities.

Although experts in their respective fields, each member not only has a pioneering spirit but also a friendly smile.
