This gives a whole new meaning to the expression destination wedding.
Travel is now back with a vengeance, and destination weddings are no exception.
For the couples who really want to raise the bar, custom luxury travel company Red Savannah just announced a new $250,000 wedding package in Antarctica that is easily the coolest RSVP of the year.
The details of the invitation and event are as follows:
Wedding parties of up to 12 guests are invited to fly out of Cape Town, South Africa and take an 8.5 hour flight over the Southern Ocean landing at Wolf’s Fang Airstrip in Antarctica where they are cordially invited to celebrate with a “White Wedding in a White Desert” party on arrival.
The icy celebration begins with a celebratory wedding breakfast on ice and continues with a cake-cutting ceremony and champagne in the snow lounge.
Guests who choose to spend more than one day in the Arctic are invited to stay at Echo, a brand new polar camp made up of six state-of-the-art pods with a futuristic floor-to-ceiling window design overlooking a vast expanse of snow and ice fields.
Each pod contains a central communal area and dining area where South African cuisine is paired with award-winning wines. For couples looking to relax after saying their “I-Dos”, the option to renew at Whichaway Camp, which includes a wellness area and sauna pod on the shores of the freshwater lake of the Schirmacher Oasis, is certainly the perfect spot for a mini -Moon.
While all activities are customizable throughout the experience, optional activities range from visiting a colony of 28,000 emperor penguins to ice and mountain climbing, arctic safaris, skidoo tours, and a trip to the South Pole for a special champagne picnic.
Prices start at $250,000 and include round-trip flights and transfers from Cape Town to Antarctica, accommodation, food, drinks and activities. Guests don’t have to worry about buying a gift for the couple as $1,000 per person will be pledged towards conservation and sustainability initiatives heading to Antarctica.
