After a five-hour flight across the Southern Ocean aboard our Gulfstream G550, you land on the ancient blue ice of our dedicated runway at Wolf’s Fang, before transferring to Whichaway, located on the shores of a freshwater lake fringed by a 60m / 200ft icewall, or Wolf's Fang, set in the dramatic mountain ranges one of the last great wildernesses on Earth.
Our adventures range from 8-day safaris to visit the Emperor Penguins and the Geographic South Pole, to 6-day trips focussed on climbing virgin peaks or learning the skills of a polar explorer, to world’s most extraordinary day trip! Guests stay in luxurious heated polar pods with en-suite facilities and a shower block, while our food and wine draw on the best that Cape Town and the Winelands have to offer.
No matter which trip you choose, you’ll be able to dictate the pace, deciding whether you prefer abseiling, ice-climbing and skidoo-driving or hiking, a massage and a cocktail on the deck overlooking the lake. With genuine polar explorers as your guides, you will see, touch and experience a place that is unlike anything else on Earth.
Come with us on an unforgettable journey. Come explore…
