Antarctic Group Tours for Solo Travellers
Travel solo as part of a group tour to Antarctica
Why Travel Solo To Antarctica?
New friendships and epic adventures in a frozen world where no permanent human inhabitants reside? Welcome to Antarctica – our most far-flung destination yet.
Very few travellers ever make it to Antarctica: the coldest, driest and most remote continent on earth. For those hardy enough to make the long journey south, the rewards are out of this world.
A solid landmass larger than the US, 98% of the continent is covered with thick ice, up to 4.5 kilometres deep (that’s half the height of Everest). Underneath, lies a vast hidden landscape of mountains, valleys and volcanoes carved by ancient rivers and frozen in time for millions of years. A mystery still being explored.
With temperatures plunging to −90°C, it’s an inhospitable environment for humans. Yet this pristine white wilderness is a haven for some of the planet’s most recognisable wildlife, including penguins, leopard seals, orcas, albatross and blue, minke and humpback whales.
When you travel with Flash Pack, you’ll share the experience with a group of like-minded solo explorers, making an already incredible adventure that little bit extra special.
What's the national language?
With no native population, there is no national language but English, Spanish and Russian are most widely spoken on research stations.
