Whichaway Camp

Pioneering spirit and comfort meet at White Desert’s flagship Whichaway Camp which sits at the shores of a freshwater lake. There are 6 cozy sleeping pods with snuggly sitting areas. Each unit has a wash area and bathroom, and there are 3 hot water showers available 24/7 in the camp. There are also separate pods for communal space at Whichaway Camp, places to sit back and recharge. The well-appointed lounge, with adjacent cocktail deck, is the perfect setting for guests to relax and share experiences after a day on the ice. Enjoy a craft cocktail with pure ice over a 1000 years old. There are hearty breakfasts to get you on your way for a day full of adventures, picnic lunches with outstanding views and 6-course sumptuous dinners paired with the best the Cape has to offer.

The library is complete with timeless classics recounting tales of Antarctic exploration, the stories perhaps all the more real now that you are experiencing this incredible environment at first hand.

The 6 warm and cozy sleeping pods are guaranteed to give you a good night's sleep after a day of exploring, safe and secure from whatever is going on outside. There are soft, comfortable beds in toasty and pleasant surroundings with sitting areas to sip a cup of coffee to start your day. There are hot towel racks, wash areas and bathroom in each pod with 3 shower areas available to you 24/7 for a well-deserved hot shower.
