A trip to the White Continent is without doubt one of the most unique experiences of a lifetime! No place on earth compares to this vast white wilderness distilled to an elemental haiku: snow, ice, water, rock. Antarctica is simply stunning. The enormity of its ice shelves and mountain ranges invariably heightens feelings of humanity’s insignificance and nature’s grandeur. Antarctica’s peculiar beauty may haunt you for the rest of your days.
Once known by explorers as “Terra Incognito”, Antarctica boasts the most rugged and perhaps spiritual missions known to man. Antarctica holds the record for the coldest, windiest, driest, and highest elevation on Earth. The journey there is an adventure in itself, as crossing the turbulent Drake Passage south of Argentina will not soon be forgotten.
Discover impossibly blue icebergs drifting at sea, lazy seals, curious whales, and millions of migratory seabirds. Go ashore by Zodiac for a closer look at a living landscape teeming with vast penguin colonies. Onboard historians and naturalists will quench your thirst for the continent’s rich history and wildlife. Thrill seekers can add scuba diving, ice climbing, camping, or kayaking to their itineraries. Photographers will delight in the myriad opportunities for capturing the spectacular scenery.
