Whichaway Camp

Whichaway is a luxurious camp on the edge of the Schirmacher Oasis in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica.

Whichaway Camp has an easy and friendly feel to it and is run along strict environmental guidelines. There are six state-of-the-art sleeping pods, designed for two people in each, which are heated and warm. They are quiet on windy days and at just over 6m (20ft) in diameter, they are also spacious, with a double bed (for couples), a writing desk, wash area and toilet. For guests travelling separately, the room can be partitioned. The rest of the camp comprises of a shower pod, kitchen pod and two custom-made tents. These are unique – fusing cutting edge material with an old-world feel and house the lounge and dining room. Here you can relax, enjoy the fantastic food from our award winning chef and take things easy.

The philosophy at Whichaway Camp is simple – do as much or as little as you like. It’s your adventure.

Each day, field guides will suggest a number of excursions and activities for you to choose from. They can be easy and relaxing, or adrenalin-charged…it’s entirely up to you. A gentle trek to a series of ice tunnels or venture further towards the coast, to where giant ice waves rise up from the ground in surreal formations. From relaxed picnics, to visiting one of the local science bases – it’s all about doing what you want to do. For those after more excitement, expert guides will teach you the skills of a polar explorer. There is technical rock climbing, mighty abseils and even kite-skiing. Allow yourself to be pushed you as far as you want to go. Whether you are Bear Grylls wanting to summit unclimbed peaks or you are there just to experience Antarctica’s majestic scenery, the guides ensure you are warm, safe and doing whatever it is you want to do.
