By Lauren Jade Hill

By Lauren Jade Hill

The bespoke travel outfitter Natural World Safaris is known for its adventurous itineraries that give you access to some of the world’s most wild and remote places, but this is taking that idea even further. By flying down from Cape Town, you can now experience Antarctica on a one-day trip, making this extraordinary land of ice and sea accessible for flying visits.

A specialist Antarctic pilot flies guests by Illuyshin 76 jet to the land of 24-hour light where you’ll land on an ice runway. Here, you have 12 hours on the ground, with a comfortable lodge as your base, with spacious living areas and a sauna to unwind in.

During the course of the day, you have a selection of activities to choose between to experience the surroundings to the fullest; set out on treks through the surreal landscape, seek out the nearby ice grottos and go in search of Adelie penguins, and have a once-in-a-lifetime champagne lunch cooked for you by one of Cape Town’s premium chefs and served out on the ice. Ideal for tagging onto a trip to Cape Town or a South African safari, this is a dream trip for people with an adventurous spirit and beyond compare for anyone with a passion for photography.

A day trip from to Antarctica from Cape Town costs from $10,076 per person, traveling in December and January.
