White Desert Sky Pods at Echo Camp in Antarctica
Escape to the future...I mean outer space...I mean Antarctica with the stay of a lifetime in one of these Sky Pods at White Desert's Echo Camp.
White Desert indeed modeled their futuristic sleeping pods after space station interiors. And if the domed walls and ceiling, and out-of-this-world views from the panoramic front windows don't take you far enough away, decor that includes original photos taken from the International Space Station (ISS) by former Commander Colonel Terry Virts should fill in the blanks. And, for what it's worth, Virts has said the mountains populating the Echo landscape "are the most beautiful I have seen across Earth, Venus and Mars."
In addition to the mountains, Echo Camp features include:
- A circling of pitted rock formations visitors can hike, climb, and rappel down
- A nearby Emperor Penguin colony with over 28,000 citizens
- Fine dining courtesy of a personal chef
- A host of daily excursion options through snow, snow, and more snow. Your choice whether you're on skis, foot, or a fat bike.
Staying in a Sky Pod at Echo Camp is a private luxury experience White Desert provides for up to 12 people. All components of the camp - the 6 composite fiberglass bedroom pods, plus the central propellor-shaped eating, meeting, and staff areas - are designed to be broken down and hauled away after use, "leaving no trace on the Antarctic landscape."
