Landing at the specially prepared ice runway, you will then be transferred by 4x4s to the magnificent Schirmacher Oasis. A land of cliffs, lakes and science bases – all of which will be explored throughout the day.

With an aim to spend 8hrs on the ground, you can partake in a host of activities ranging from completely gentle to as adrenaline-fueled as you wish. Expert guides are on hand to escort you every step of the way.

The day culminates with a gourmet Champagne dinner, in celebration of the spectacular setting that is the Antarctic.

Landing back in Cape Town 24hrs later, nestle yourself into the crisp white sheets of your Ellerman House bed. Pinch yourself – it’s not a dream, you just experienced the greatest day.
