Antarctica • Nov 2023 & Jan 2024
Antarctica flights are very different from ship based expeditions to Antarctica given that they give you a chance to experience Antarctica in one day. One of the things that even seasoned ship based expeditioners mention is the sense of scale that the Antarctica overflights give you in comparison to ship based expeditions. The flights give you a much greater appreciation of the sheer size of Antarctica compared to anything that you experience on a ship.
There will also be a team of Antarctica experts onboard to help explain the landscapes and history of the continent as you fly, making this a fantastic inflight experience for you.
Generally it takes around three hours of flying time south of Australia before you start to see scattered icebergs and shortly after you will normally reach the continent itself, where, weather permitting, you’ll get to take in the dramatic mountains, glaciers and frozen landscapes of Antarctica.
For the regular Antarctica flights you will spend 3 – 4 hours flying over the Antarctic continent and weather permitting flying altitude will reduce to approximately 20,000 feet to give improved viewing of some areas. The South Pole Flight will spend significantly longer over Antarctica, mostly at cruising altitude aiming to reach the South Pole.
On each departure date a number of factors are carefully considered, including weather, cloud cover and ice conditions to help provide you the best viewing experience on the day. Working with Qantas, there are 20 different potential flight paths to choose from, all of which have a variety of interesting features to see.
