Overview

Combine the ultimate comfort of our Three Glaciers Retreat with a night spent at 90° S. Fly to the Geographic South Pole, the holy grail of polar explorers, and camp overnight at the World’s Southernmost Resort. Below your feet, all 360 lines of longitude meet and in just a few steps you can walk around the world!

History and modern science converge outside Amundsen-Scott Station as you take photographs at the Ceremonial Pole surrounded by the flags of the original Antarctic Treaty signatory nations. Your overnight stay at our private camp allows you ample time to reflect on your surroundings and experience this special place on Earth.

Return to the comfort of our exclusive Three Glaciers Retreat, tucked away deep in the interior of Antarctica. Designed with a thoughtful attention to detail, Three Glaciers provides a sanctuary for relaxation and comfort. Immerse yourself in the ultimate wilderness, surrounded by pristine views, untouched spaces, and profound silence. Here in the Heritage Range of the Ellsworth Mountains, majestic peaks rise in all directions offering unlimited opportunities for snowmobiling, hiking, climbing, and skiing.


Weather

The interior of Antarctica has a cold, dry, windy climate. Average mid-season temperatures at our retreat range from -12°F to 30°F (-24°C to -1°C ). Three Glaciers Retreat is typically less windy than other areas. On a sunny windless day it can feel quite warm but, when the wind blows, you will be glad of warm layers and a wind jacket. Temperatures can drop as low as -22°F (-30°C) in early November.

At the South Pole, be prepared for extreme conditions. Temperatures rarely climb above -13°F (-25°C) with light winds and windchill down to -40°F (-40°C). The physiological altitude (how high it feels) is roughly 11,000ft (3,300m).


Activity Level

Moderate

Moderate trips offer adventure with a bit more challenge. They may include walking up to several miles/kilometres on uneven snow and ice; staying in remote field camps; extreme temperatures (–40°F / –40°C); activity at high altitudes (11,000ft / 3350m); or skydiving from 13,000 ft AGL (15,300 ft AMSL) .

Strenuous

Strenuous trips include skiing, climbing, and trekking trips where you spend several days or more in remote field camps and you are active for 6-8 hours a day over steeper, more rugged terrain. They can involve climbing and camping at altitude and in extreme weather conditions. These trips can be tailored to your skills and abilities, however a good level of fitness is essential and some technical skills may be required.
