Ultimate Antarctica by Mantis

Mantis offers you luxury and comfort in the heart of Antarctica. After a five-hour flight across the Southern Ocean, you are transported to our beautifully designed, ecological camp that is set in one of the last great wildernesses on earth.

The team at White Desert offer a range of adventures, tailored to suit the time guests would like to spend on this icy continent.

The guides are genuine polar explorers and our management team have skied over 16,000kms in the Polar Regions. Together we understand how to travel and experience such a pristine environment in both safety and style, and will ensure that you too will thoroughly enjoy experiencing a place that is unlike anything else on this earth.

Summer temperatures are mild and you need only to be in a normal physical condition to join us. What happens once you arrive in Antarctica is entirely up to you. The place is as big as your imagination!

Join us on an unforgettable journey.
