They fly down small of groups of people from Cape Town, South Africa on a flight that takes five and a half hours, set them up in a camp, and help them experience Antarctica in any way they want, whether that means simply relaxing or going on adrenaline pumping adventures.

The camp consists of 6 sleeping pods that each sleep two people. Inside each one is a double bed, a desk, a toilet, and a wash area.

The camp also ships out all human waste to be properly disposed of in South Africa, runs on solar and wind power, and offsets their flight emissions through various carbon projects around the world.

Near the camp, guests can experience all sorts of things, including ice tunnels, ice waves, rock climbing, kite skiing, picnics, science base-camps and abseiling (a controlled descent down the side of a steep rock face). But that’s just the beginning.
