All This Included

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 or half degree of latitude. These polar expeditions also fit busier schedules and do not require the rigorous physical preparation of other polar ski expeditions.

This polar adventure begins in Punta Arenas, Chile, the largest city south of the 46th southern parallel, and a perfect launching pad for pre or post expedition Patagonian adventures. From Punta Arenas we fly over the Drake Passage to Antarctica, touching down in the Union Glacier Base Camp, the bustling logistical center for South Pole. Just a 1,000 kilometer flight separates Union Glacier from the South Pole, where you can literally stand in every time zone simultaneously and circumnavigate the globe in a matter of steps!

Notes
  • The itinerary above is subject to change. When traveling to remote regions, your expedition staff must allow the ice, weather and other factors to determine the itinerary.
  • North and South Pole Flights are for people who want to experience the North & South Poles, but don't have the time, energy or funding to do a full expedition. People on these Polar Flights have ranged in age from 1 to 81 years! All of these trips require that you can climb several stairs into and out of the plane and walk across the uneven terrain of the ice. We can assist you as necessary. The South Pole Flight requires you to sleep in a tent (with a very warm sleeping bag). To best enjoy this Polar exploration and flight adventure you should be in moderate shape.
  • Travel in the Polar regions requires flexibility. Delays are often the rule rather than the exception.
  • Please ask your Vacations To Go travel counselor for more information.
