Antarctic road trip (Elegant Resorts)

Larger image

The 'Antarctica - Top Gear Special' trip is about as exclusive as it gets, running for just a few weeks a year, for only a handful of people. A drive to the south pole in off-road vehicles gets the adrenaline pumping, especially if you include a spot of skiing or ice-walking en route.

The damage: The 22-day trip costs from £187,000 per person.
