Antarctica is the great white continent and is one of the last wilderness areas on the planet Earth. The continent is largely unchanged since the times of the early explorers.
It is home to the world’s finest concentration of wildlife, where animals like penguins, seals and whales and many others are the only permanent residents.
Explore the magnificent icebergs for yourself, visit the islands guided by various species of penguin including the beautiful chinstrap and Adélie. Experience the magnificient king penguin rookeries of South Georgia, nicknamed the “Galapagos of the Poles,” as well as the purly magical wealth of untamed wildlife in the distinct and diverse archipelagos of the great Southern Ocean.
Revel in the joy of crossing the famed Drake Passage after embarking on the journey from Ushuaia, with the convenient north bound flight at the end of your adventurous expedition.
