It’s been described as the world’s most unique tour, including some of the world’s rarest and most exhilarating sights: a private jet tour from the Arctic Circle to middle of Antarctica, via London and Cape Town, in 11 days.
The adventure begins with an sumptuous dinner and overnight stay at Luton Hoo Spa & Golf Resort and then moves onto the Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Lapland. Guests can take part in husky sledding or take reindeer rides, take a cruise on an icebreaker followed a night tour of the magical Northern Lights. Accommodation includes glass igloos and wooden lodges.

From Lapland travellers travel down to the earth’s ‘mid-point’ to enjoy a three-day stay at the Cape Grace hotel in Cape Town, voted as the best hotel in Africa. After some rest and relaxation in the South African sunshine, travellers and are whisked southwards on a private charter to Antarctica, where they will experience 24-hour daylight and get to walk the land of the 7th continent, something few have ever experienced.

The three days spent here sees guests visit ice caves, learn how to kite ski and take an unforgettable flight to Atka Bay to visit an emperor penguin colony. Another highlight is the ‘rope walk’, technically an easy walk with some light scrambling, which takes guests over a huge rock cliff looking out towards the ice waves. Accommodation in Antarctica is in specially designed pods, which are dreamily cosy for the icy surroundings.
