ANTARCTICA PERSONALISED TRAVEL

The destination

Antarctica is the Earth’s southernmost continent situated in the Antarctic region of the Southern Hemisphere. It is a stunning and surreal place in every way: ice shelves, snow, wind, cold water, desert landscape, big rocks – a vast wilderness of elemental forces located in one single far-flung region. It is enormous, it is fascinating, and it is extreme. It is so remote, that getting there is already an adventure in itself!

Antarctica is absolutely impressive and has undeniable natural assets. Its thickest ice layer at Dome A is over 4km deep – about as deep as the Alps are high. The biggest icebergs in the world break off from Antarctica’s ice shelves; one of them had the same size as Jamaica. Antarctica is the driest continent, almost entirely a desert with very little snow or rain falls, however since it is so cold, the small amount of precipitation that does fall doesn’t melt creating the biggest ice shelves. Push your limits and your imagination and venture out of your comfort zone in this region: paddle along under ice arches and towering icebergs, go on a cruise, trek your way up to the peaks either by hiking or snowshoeing, go mountaineering, and explore the underwater world of Antarctica by snorkelling and diving. With so many water sports and activities to enjoy, Antarctica truly is a playground for the adventurous spirits. 

A further highlight of this region is the incredible wildlife and its diversity. The territory contains more than 90% of the earth’s land ice, which constitutes the largest fresh water reserve on earth. Preserved by the Antarctic Treaty, visitors can find extraordinary species including whales, Emperor penguins, killer whales, krill, and millions of seabirds. Your adventure to the seventh continent will allow you to observe all these animals, whether cruising or hiking, at close range while enjoying the background scenery of mountainous glaciers and roaming icebergs.

Today, Antarctica is still one of the very few places left on this planet that is nearly free of humankind’s imprint, far away from everything and anyone; its nature is still untouched and raw. It is an ecological wonder that has bewitched explorers, scientists, and travellers alike for over two centuries. It truly is an unforgettable journey to take, and a privilege to be among the few to explore this continent. Be ready to get out of your comfort zone.
