Airbnb Is Looking For UAE Volunteers To Go On An All-Paid Trip To Antartica

Looking for an all-paid, all-expense-covered holiday? Well, if you’re up to step out of your comfort zone, there’s something adventurous coming your way. Airbnb is looking for UAE volunteers to go on an exciting trip to Antartica. So, ditch the cliche and try something out of the box this winter. This one’s sure to be thrilling and memorable!

What’s In It?

Airbnb has an exciting job offer for all you travel junkies, who also love a bit of adventure. This November/December, Airbnb offers you an all-expense covered trip to the land of ice- Antartica. The company is seeking five volunteers from the UAE for a month-long trip. The trip to the world’s most remote continent is being conducted in a bid to understand the environmental impact on humans. And, UAE residents are eligible for the post!

If you’re wondering about the terms and conditions, here’s another surprise! Airbnb has absolutely no terms and conditions involved. A passion for travel, and a spirit for adventure, is all that this job demands. The only condition- ensure you’re available through November/December and can converse in English.

The Airbnb sponsored trip will be lead by scientist Kirstie Jones-Williams, who warns that the trip will be a hard one. “We are looking for passionate individuals, with a sense of global citizenship, who are excited to be a part of the team and to return home and share our findings with the world.”

The trip will kick off at Punta Arenas in Chile, where participants will undergo training on glaciology and field sampling, along with learning lab work and handling equipments. The team will then proceed to Antartica where their work will include collecting snow samples to assess the pollution levels.

What Else?

That’s not it! Airbnb will also give the ‘famous five’ an opportunity to explore the South Pole and various cities in Antartica including Drake Icefall, Charles Peak Windscoop, and Elephant’s Head.

Upon their return to Chile, participants can continue their research with Ocean Conservancy to become ambassadors for protecting the ocean.
