It’s one of the coolest day trips on Earth – a flight to the Antarctic from Australia to see the frozen continent in the cosy comfort of a jumbo jet!
Lizzy Lovette is on board the final flight for the Antarctic Summer, leaving from Sydney for a 13-hour return trip over the Trans Antarctic Mountains, stunning glaciers, ice floes, icebergs and two International Research stations.
Pitched as the “World’s Most Unique Day Tour”, Antarctica Flights is the only company in the world to offer these sightseeing tours! This year, it’s celebrating 25 years flying over Earth’s coldest, driest and windiest continent.
Not that you have to deal with any of that from 10,000 feet in the air!
Also on board are specialists who’ve worked in Antarctica: scientists, filmmakers, tradespeople, who roam the cabin to chat, tell stories and answer your questions.
Antarctic sightseeing flights resume in November 2019 with departures from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.
You’re at the bottom of the planet – but will feel on top of the world!
