Tour Description

Welcome in the New Year at the end of the earth in the midnight sun. Departing in the evening, this unique flight will have you celebrating at dizzying heights over the most unique landscape on our earth. On-board you will be entertained with live music and lavished with champagne while you wonder over the enigmatic landscapes of Antarctica as she sparkles below you.

Our Antarctica flights are very different from our ship based expeditions to Antarctica given that they give you a chance to experience Antarctica in one day. One of the things that even seasoned ship based expeditioners mention is the sense of scale that the Antarctica overflights give you in comparison to ship based expeditions. The flights give you a much greater appreciation of the sheer size of Antarctica compared to anything that you experience on a ship.

You will travel from Melbourne in the late afternoon and return the following year (13 hours later). We will also have a team of Antarctica experts onboard to help explain the landscapes and history of the continent as we fly. 

Generally it takes around three hours of flying time south of Australia before we start to see scattered icebergs and shortly after we normally reach the continent itself, where, weather permitting, we’ll get to take in the dramatic mountains, glaciers and frozen landscapes of Antarctica.

Tour Itinerary

Departing Melbourne on New Years eve you will travel between 9,500km round trip. A team of Antarctica Experts will be on board to explain the continent’s landscapes and history as you fly over Antarctica.

Generally it takes around three hours of flying time south of Australia before we start to see scattered icebergs and shortly after we normally reach the continent itself, where, weather permitting, we’ll get to take in the dramatic mountains, glaciers and frozen landscapes of Antarctica.

For the regular Antarctica flights we will spend 3 - 4 hours flying over the Antarctic continent and weather permitting we’ll hope to reduce the flying altitude to approximately 20,000 feet to give improved viewing of some areas.
