Experience 24 hours in Antarctica

Despite the fact that more superyachts are visiting Antarctica every year, spending ten days exploring this part of the world on a luxury yacht isn't for everyone.

Busy explorers can now easily tick off Antarctica from their bucket list with a 24-hour round-trip to the remote polar region with bespoke adventure company Natural World Safaris.

Departing from Cape Town, guests will take a private jet 4,000 kilometres to an ice runway, where they will spend 8-12 hours discovering Antarctica using Whichaway Camp as a base. There are two flight options, either the Ilyushin IL-76 TD aircraft predominantly used for scientific expeditions or a Gulfstream private jet, which can cater for 14 people to travel in the utmost luxury.

During the day guests can opt for a number of different activities, including treks into the tundra and excursions to see the Adelie penguins and nearby ice caves. In December 2017, 1.55 million square kilometres of the Ross Sea will become a new marine reserve, so it's well worth the visit to see this natural oasis.

Additionally, make time to head to the astonishing Schirmacher Oasis in 4x4s and explore the lakes, ice peaks and scientific bases with an expert guide on hand. Head back to the camp, which has catered to the needs of Buzz Aldrin, Prince Harry and Bear Grylls in the past, to unwind after the day's activities, enjoy a gourmet Champagne dinner and warm up in the sauna.

With the iconic Wolf's Fang peak, part of the Drygalski mountain range, as a backdrop, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for world travellers keen to experience one of the most remote spots on Earth without sacrificing on luxury.

The one-day trip to Antarctica departing from Cape Town costs from £11,795 per person and is available during the months of December and January.
