The World's Most Unique Day Tour

You’re en route to the icy expanse of Antarctica – without a jacket! But then aboard the privately chartered Qantas 747, the standard rules of travel go out the window. The atmosphere on board is electric. You’re all present for the same reason – to fulfill that bucket list dream of exploring an uncharted continent, without even getting your feet wet. And with up to four hours over the ice and the remaining hours to enjoy the bespoke service – including premium drinks, delicious meals and talks from Antarctic expeditioners – it’s an experience like no other.

Australia is the only country from which you can take a sightseeing flight over the frozen south. Antarctica Flights operate a handful of one-day sightseeing flights over Antarctica departing from Sydney and Melbourne every summer. Taking around 12 hours the flights are the easiest way to view this great white Continent. The 19 planned routes to match the day’s weather conditions, ensure optimal viewing for everyone on board. Expert Antarctic expeditioners are onboard to talk about the polar environment and its history while video screenings depict life on the ground.

Approximately three hours south of Australia, you will usually see the first scattered ice followed by dozens of icebergs and ice floes. We then cross the South Magnetic Pole where you will start to view the rugged mountainous topography of the Antarctic mainland.

No passports are needed, and you are kept warm and safe with a glass of bubbly in hand while the privately chartered Qantas 747 glides effortlessly over amazing scenery. Every departure is different – no two flights are the same...

This will be unlike any other flight you have ever taken, and nothing can prepare you for the amazing sights you will see. Ensure that your camera batteries are charged and your memory cards are empty as it is not unusual for guests to take over 1,000 photos and lots of video during our flights.

itravel The Junction and Warners Bay have put together an exclusive package for the new departure date of Sunday 26th November 2017. The package includes luxury coach travel to and from Newcastle, so you can just sit back and enjoy this unique journey.

Seats will sell out so don’t delay! Become one of the privileged few to witness the desolate beauty of this untamed polar desert. Contact itravel The Junction PH 4962 1116 or itravel Warners Bay PH 4947 1116 for full details.
