Designed with thoughtful attention to detail, Three Glaciers provides a sanctuary for relaxation and comfort. Located a scenic 15-minute flight from our main camp at Union Glacier, this picturesque setting in the Heritage Range of the Ellsworth Mountains offers an alternative base for your Antarctic experience.
With only 8 sleeping suites, occupancy is limited to 16 guests, affording ultimate privacy and superior service. Three suites feature king beds and five suites are outfitted with two extra-long twin beds. White oak and walnut bed frames support dreamy mattresses, sateen sheets, and down duvets covered in vintage linen. Each suite is heated by a high-efficiency Toyostove and furnished with a cozy sitting area. You’ll find plenty of space to store your polar gear, as well as a charging station for your personal electronics. When you’re ready to enjoy the luxury of a hot shower in the middle of Antarctica, toiletries and towels are on hand. We gather and melt snow straight from the glacier to keep a piping hot supply ready for you in our custom-built shower facility.
The dining room and lounge are the heart of Three Glaciers. Here your private chef creates original dishes with fresh ingredients flown in from Chile. In between meals, relax on the sofa with a book from our polar library or enjoy a coffee from the comfort of a leather lounge chair.
Majestic peaks rise in all directions offering unlimited opportunities for snowmobiling, hiking, climbing, and skiing. Our experienced guides will design daily adventures to match your personal pursuits. Scale rocky ridges for your first Antarctic summit, carve tracks down powder slopes, or snowmobile into secret valleys few have ever seen.
