White Desert Creates The Happiest Day in Antarctica

Pioneers of luxury travel in Antarctica, White Desert has launched ‘The Happiest Day’, an itinerary created for guests wanting to celebrate a special occasion with a truly rare backdrop.

For centuries, the Last Continent has held a special place in our imaginations, and even now, long after the first explorers reached the South Pole, access to the interior of Antarctica is still only for the very few. It sets the perfect scene for an exclusive group of up to 12 friends or family looking to turn a ‘Happiest Day’ into the journey of a lifetime. Regardless of the length of the trip, all guests will commence their trips from Cape Town, enjoying the hospitality of a boutique hotel partner before boarding one of White Desert’s private jets to Antarctica.

There is no better time for this experience to be added to White Desert’s itineraries. This year White Desert has reported a rise in enquiries for weddings, as well as those looking for intimate, unique adventures alongside their closest friends and family. The Happiest Day itinerary can be tailored to each group to tie into their celebrations, with the option for a one-day trip, five-day trip or seven-day trip.

For the ultimate destination celebration, White Desert can fly guests in for one spectacular day under 24 hours of Antarctic summer daylight. Those celebrating recent nuptials can arrive for a wedding breakfast on ice, with a wedding cake-cutting ceremony and champagne served from White Desert’s Snow Lounge. For those wishing to celebrate other occasions, White Desert can arrange bespoke meals with 10,000-year-old ice cocktails alongside a host of exciting activities including zip lining, exploring iridescent ice tunnels and fat-biking amongst spires of rock jutting from the ice floor.

Guests looking to stay a little longer can opt to experience White Desert’s Emperor Penguin itinerary for five days or White Desert’s South Pole and Emperor Penguin itinerary for seven days. For those extending their trip, guests will be looked after in style; new for 2022 is Echo, White Desert’s modern eco-camp. Offering six heated, cutting-edge bedroom ‘sky pods’ complete with expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, with interiors featuring retro space-age detailing and luxurious furnishings. Guests could also opt to stay at Whichaway, White Desert’s original camp, which sits on the shores of one of the freshwater lakes of the Schirmacher Oasis, complete with a wellness space and sauna pod. Both camps have been designed to be dismantled without a trace, leaving no more than a transitory impact on Antarctica
