Ever wonder what it would take to fly from the Tierra del Fuego to the North Pole?

The capital of Provincia de Tierra del Fuego, Ushuaia is widely regarded as the southernmost city in the world. Conversely, Longyearbyen is the world’s northernmost city.

Curiosity got the best of us so we decided the test our interactive content map by exploring one of the most extreme air routes we could think up – a fictional mega journey from Ushuaia, Argentina to Longyearbyen, Norway.

So, what did it take to complete this epic journey?

First, we caught a flight to Buenos Aires – a paltry 3h 28min journey – covering 2,380km.

From Buenos Aires we flew to Sao Paulo (2h 45min – 1,694km) and caught our long haul flight from Sao Paulo to London Heathrow – 11h 5m, 9,470km.

Once in London, we took a short 2h 5m flight to Oslo (1,207km), and then on to Tromso (1h 50min – 1,116km).

Finally, a short 1h 35m, 954km jaunt brought us to our dream holiday destination – Longyearbyen – where we thoroughly enjoyed the midnight sun .

Grand total – nearly 23 hours in the air and 16,821km travelled – that should earn us some frequent flyer miles (if only we were really taking this trip!).
