Celebrate Antarctica’s greatest explorer, Ernest Shackleton, on the 100th anniversary of his Imperial Trans-Atlantic Expedition! Learn how exploring the stunning white desert of the arid South Pole for a once-in-a-lifetime is a chance to re-live history.
White Desert Expeditions
Antarctica sets a dramatic scene for an adventure unlike anything else in the world. Stunningly expansive, its vast, open spaces feature sprawling snow drifts, iceberg-flanked passageways, and glass-like ocean waters. Explorers from all over the globe come to this Southernmost continent to marvel at its other-worldly beauty. While virtually uninhabitable, climate-ready shelters designed to withstand the temperatures of this remote destination offer full immersion into the Antarctic landscape without sacrificing a single luxury comfort.
Sleep Like an Astronaut, Live Like an Explorer
Inspired by the unintrusive minimalism of astronaut dwellings in space, White Desert’s Echo Sky Pods offer an out-of-this-world adventure without ever leaving Earth. The intimate grouping of six state-of-the-art glamping pods features composite fiberglass walls with floor-to-ceiling windows for panoramic views of the icy plains and snow-capped mountains. Designed with the climate in mind, these eco-friendly pods can be easily dismantled and carried away without a trace.
Ski, Hike, Climb, Traverse
If you’re going to explore like Shackleton on expedition, you should adventure like him too! Mountains, ice, and top-of-the-line gear for every snow sport available create the most opportune setting for once-in-a-lifetime outdoor experiences. Take your pick of fat-tire bikes for cycling through the snow, cross-country skies, abseiling, ice climbing, Skidoo tours, Arctic safari expeditions by truck, camping, mountaineering, and the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of every Arctic explorer.
