Stride Review

They offer three incredible journeys in Antarctica where you can travel in luxury while experiencing the adventure of a lifetime.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

They occupy a space that few have captured: luxury travel in Antarctica. 3 main adventures are offered to experience the vast beautiful icy lands, all of which have you traveling in comfort and luxury. The three intricate trips they offer all showcase the incredibly unique nature of Antarctica. Two of them focus on penguins, and the third actually travels to the interior of the continent.

Who Travels With Them?

Their trips are geared toward older luxury travelers who have an adventurous streak. Families may also enjoy the opportunity to have some creature comforts while experiencing the beautiful but rough outdoors. Some of their activities will be more enjoyed by younger adventure minded travelers, but they offer a multitude of activities on each journey so there is something for everyone.

Accommodations are definitely on the nicer side, though a bit more casual on their “Greatest Day” adventure which visits the interior of Antarctica. These trips are not cheap however, so many may find the price prohibitive.  

Where Do They Operate?

Antarctica is their sole focus. Their trips visit Antarctica’s coasts and the South Pole where you’ll see Emperor Penguins and learn about the history of exploration here. They also offer a “Greatest Day” adventure which explores the interior of the continent.

Why Travel With Them?

Antarctica is a bucket list item for many and they create incredible journeys. Multiple types of excursion and activity are offered throughout your trip - they try to make sure every traveler has something to enjoy. If you have an adventurous spirit, and are looking for an unforgettable experience in one of the world’s last frontiers, don’t miss a tour with White Desert.

From White Desert

White Desert flies you into the interior of Antarctica for an experience that is as luxurious as it is adventurous. After a five-hour flight across the Southern Ocean, you are transported to our newly built, ecological camp set in one of the last great wildernesses on earth.

We offer a range of adventures from 9-day safaris to visit the Emperor penguins and the Geographic South Pole, to shorter trips designed to cater for those with tighter schedules. There is now even a 2-day trip to Antarctica! With genuine polar explorers as your guides, you will see, touch and experience a place that is unlike anything on earth.
