Whichaway Camp, Queen Maud Land, Antarctica
Whichaway Camp. Located on a 200ft ice fall on the edge of the Shirmacher Oasis in Queen Maud Land, this is Antarctica’s first and only luxury camp. White Desert tours flies you into the interior of Antarctica for an experience that is as luxurious as it is adventurous. One of the highlights of the eight-day tour that includes kite skiing, ice climbing, and a close encounter with a colony of Emperor penguins, six fibreglass domes, originally designed by Ryan Ashworth, recently emerged from an extensive refurbishment. Given the extraordinary wildness of the setting, surprisingly luxurious – fabric headboards and Saarinen chairs are accented with fur throws. The entire camp is fixed in place with metal rods, though, given the location, it’s entirely temporary and can be completely removed without leaving any trace.
