I love to travel but I also love to dream about amazing trips that I might be able to save up for some day when I’m retired or win the lottery! This weekly post will feature one amazing bucket list worthy trip and let you know how to book it (if you’re ready to splurge!)
Tell me…how do you feel about a luxury vacation to Antartica? I have a feeling about half of you will immediately discount this one because it’s somewhere VERY cold, however, the sun actually shines there 25 hours a day! That’s good news! The most expensive package that White Desert Antartica offers is an 8 day tour of Antartica including a visit to see Emperor Penguins and the South Pole.
This incredible vacation included round trip flights from Cape Town, Africa and takes you to the ends of the earth by private jet! The cost of the Emperors and South Pole trip is $92,500 per person. This price includes transportation from Cape Town, all meals, drinks, guides, and payment of a ‘Carbon Tax’ for offsetting emissions created by all logistics associated with Antarctic travel. The camp operates on a “zero-impact” policy.
You’ll sleep in a state of the art sleeping pod which even has a writing desk and be served food prepared by a world class chef. As for activities, you have many options from a gentle trek and picnic to more adventurous rock climbing and ziplining.
Check out the White Desert Website for more information, to book (many packages are already sold out for 2019!) or to take a peek at some of the more affordable options such as a one day trip to Antartica!
