If you are looking for the ultimate trip experience to the edge of the globe, then consider Kensington Tours to Antarctica.
Kensington Tours is proud to have been named one of the world’s best adventure travel companies by National Geographic Adventurer and when it comes to the ultimate luxury adventure travel, it doesn’t get any more exclusive than this trip!
Kensington Tours’ exclusive luxury eco-friendly camp offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences into the untouched heart of Antarctica’s interior.
Tour guests at Kensington Antarctica are given the rare opportunity to experience the beauty of this awe-inspiring landscape, without harming these gorgeous surroundings due to the camp’s ZERO impact policy, while being guided by accomplished polar explorers and enjoying the amenities of this refined camp.
Kensington Antarctica is the only camp of its kind. “When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime travel,” says Jeff Willner, founder of Kensington Tours, “this is the real McCoy.”
Kensington Antarctica is only accessible via a private jet from Cape Town, South Africa. The sustainable camp is perched on top of a 200 foot icefall and is the very first of its kind.
The camp has a ZERO IMPACT POLICY, meaning there is carbon offsetting for flights, it is solar & wind powered, serves locally sourced food (from South Africa), and all waste is removed and dismantled every season.
The camp is furnished in the old world opulence of African safaris, the tents are heated and spacious and include all modern conveniences. The main living area is comprised of two large, dome tents (fusing traditional materials with cutting-edge technology) which house a dining room, library, kitchen and communications area.
The camp has only six sleeping tents, each one shared by two clients, to ensure an intimate experience for every guest as well as personalized service from our five accomplished polar explorers/guides. Gourmet meals are served by an acclaimed chef.
Rarely offered experiences at the camp range from the astonishing to the adrenalin inducing, setting this trip apart from the ordinary.
Bespoke adventures include: kite skiing, rock and ice climbing, abseiling into crevasses, 4×4 adventures to the coastal ice barrier or to one of the science bases, a flight to the South Pole as well as access to a 12,000-strong colony of fearless Emperor Penguins and their hatchlings – one of the most rarely seen wildlife events on the planet.
The Antarctica season runs from late November through January when temperatures average a mild 23 degrees Fahrenheit.
