South Pole Flight logo
Travel until 27 Nov 2021

Embark on the journey of a lifetime aboard a scenic Qantas flight over the sparkling landscapes of the South Pole. See the desolate, icy mountains of Antarctica from the air on a rare voyage not embarked upon by the average traveller. Onboard your chartered flight, the anticipation is palpable – and the first glimpse of an ice float is enough to send a ripple of excitement through the cabin. Giant glaciers, sweeping mountain ranges and powder-white plateaus are sure to fill you with the same wonder felt by the polar explorers of the early 1900s.

Departing from Melbourne aboard a privately chartered flight, soar towards Antarctica via the same route undertaken by explorer Robert Falcon Scott via Ross Island, the Transantarctic Mountains, and Beardmore Glacier, finally reaching the South Pole Station. All the while, experienced Antarctica experts will regale you with the expedition history of the continent, revealing fascinating insights into this captivating region.
