Day by day

Day 1

24 Hours in Antarctica

Your journey begins in Cape Town where you board your Illuyshin IL-76 TD Science Plane or chartered Gulfstream Private Jet with your expert Antarctic pilot to venture south to this remote region. Fly 5.5 hours across the Southern Ocean, as you cross the Antarctic Circle into 24-hour daylight ready to enjoy the wonders that Antarctica has to offer.

Ilyushin Group Trips

Touch down on the Novo ice runway and transfer in 4x4s to the magnificent Schirmacher Oasis, a land of cliffs, lakes and science bases which you will have the day to explore. Once you arrive, your guide will give you options from which to choose your activity for the day. Naturally, these activities are based outdoors so you can experience the icy wilderness of Antarctica. Choose from a range of treks, visits to nearby ice grottos or simply sitting back and sipping champagne! After your Antarctic activities, enjoy a sumptuous champagne lunch/dinner prepared for you by one of Cape Town's premium chefs. Your group can toast to your exciting Antarctic experience before saying goodbye to this extraordinary destination. Re-board your aircraft for your return flight to Cape Town. We're sure your faces will be pressed to the windows admiring the beauty of the Antarctic as you leave this picturesque location. Time on the ground: Approx. 8 hours.

Gulfstream Private Jet Charters

For those looking for a little extra luxury, fly by Gulfstream Private Jet to the Wolf’s Fang Runway. The 5.5-hour flight will take you in comfort across the ocean as you keep a look out for the first glimpse of the bright white ice. The journey towards the Great White Continent is spectacular, and Antarctica from the air is something few travellers ever experience. When you land at Wolf’s Fang, you’ll be in the shadow of one of the most iconic mountains anywhere on the continent, as kilometre-high monoliths of rock rise from the ice, creating a landscape that has to be seen to be believed. You’ll enjoy a gourmet dinner and a champagne toast, before heading back to the warmth of Cape Town. Time on the ground: Approx. 5 hours.
