Overview

Highlights

  • Visit the South Pole
  • Explore the area surrounding Union Glacier basecamp

Short Description

Adventure awaits at the bottom of the globe. Fly with PolarExplorers to 90 degrees south latitude, and marvel at the mountain ranges and austere beauty of the wildest continent en route. Flight Expeditions are perfect for those who wish to visit the South Pole but are not interested in skiing a full degree of latitude. These polar expeditions also fit busier schedules and do not require the rigorous physical preparation of other polar ski expeditions. 

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
