This month, travel company White Desert opens Antarctica's first luxury camp—your only access to the world's final frontier. Near the unexplored mountains of Dronning Maud Land, the zero-impact camp, set atop a 150-foot ice cliff, features solar-powered heating (well-suited to the 24-hour summer sunlight), private domed tents and cuisine from an award-winning chef (no matter how far you go, your culinary standards follow).
After your custom-built IL-76 jet lands on the blue-ice runway, White Desert's aim is to help you do "as much or as little" as you like—and they take each part seriously. Each ten-day expedition is led by guides like world-record Pole trekker Paul Landry, so you'll be in expert hands as you're kite-skiing, ice-caving and scaling the "Wolf's Fang" peak. The less adrenaline-inclined can take scenic flights in the private DC-3 turbo-prop, spend the night in an igloo or stop by the penguin colonies.
Just so you can get to know the natives.
