ANTARCTICA: What to expect?

Colder, drier, and windier than anywhere else on the planet, Antarctica is so extreme and remote that it barely feels like its part of Earth at all. But it’s that very otherworldliness that appeals to the adventurous souls who come here. Painted in shades of white and blue, the landscape is as beautiful as it is forbidding: monstrous glaciers, saw-toothed mountains, colossal icebergs, and fields of ice that stretch on forever. But as barren as it looks, life – specifically penguins, whales, and seabirds – finds a way to thrive here. The journey here is long, and the memories earned, eternal.

Highlights

  • Meet hardy locals and spot unique wildlife in the Falkland Islands
  • Explore abandoned whaling stations and visit Shackleton’s grave
  • Walk quietly amongst king penguins and watching them surf onto the beach
  • Learn about the environment and ecology from industry experts
  • Spot whales and seals while cruising past icebergs aboard Zodiacs
