No place on Earth compares to this vast white wilderness of elemental forces: snow, ice, water, rock. Antarctica is simply stunning.
Preserved for peace and science, this ice-crowned continent rewards the traveler with inspiration, adventure and perspective. There's nothing quite like seeing ice shimmering in all directions, reflecting sunlight through each season, or the blazing twinkle of a velvet blanket of stars in winter. Wildlife roams freely, with penguins, seals and seabirds unafraid of human visitors. Sea ice groans and crackles, and icebergs crash off vast blue glaciers into the ocean, while whales breach beside your ship. This is the ends of the earth (as we know it). It's the trip of a lifetime.
