Expedition to Antarctica: Overnight at the South Pole

January 1 - 11, 2011

Join TravelQuest International on a rare travel experience as we journey to the geographic South Pole, January 1-12, 2011. Boarding our chartered transport jet from the southern tip of Chile, we will fly deep into the heart of Antarctica, the most remote and remarkable destination on Earth.

One of the greatest stories in Antarctic exploration is the race to reach the Geographic South Pole. The heroic journeys of Amundsen and Scott still fascinate us and inspire us to travel to the end of the Earth.

From Base Camp, we will fly to the South Pole, covering in several hours the distance that took those explorers years of planning and months of hardship to achieve. History comes alive as we stand at 90 South and contemplate how it must have felt to walk across the frozen continent nearly 100 years ago. At the South Pole, we will visit the ceremonial and geographic poles, tour Amundsen-Scott base and learn abut the scientific studies at this unique research station, and then settle into a cozy field camp to overnight at the bottom of the world!

Over the last 100 years, this harsh continent has attracted explorers, adventurers, and scientists, all sharing a dream to visit the “Last Frontier”, a land of incredible beauty and irresistible mystery. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by. Space on this expedition is limited. Be a part of history.
