Overview

Fly to the Geographic South Pole, the holy grail of polar explorers, and spend the night at the World’s Southernmost Resort. Embrace this exclusive opportunity to camp overnight and wake up at 90° S. 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 as you tour Amundsen-Scott Station and take photographs at the Ceremonial Pole surrounded by the flags of the 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.


Weather

The interior of Antarctica has a cold, dry, windy climate. Average mid-season temperatures at our base camp range from 10F to 25F (-12C to -4C ). 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 -22F (-30C) in early November.

At the South Pole temperatures rarely climb above -13F (-25C) with light winds and wind chill down to -40F (-40C).


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); or light activity at altitude (11,000ft / 3350m).
