The fifth largest, the coldest, windiest and driest continent on the planet - if these aren't tempting enough, voyage to Antarctica for the penguins, the whales and the seals.
Antartica is home to some of the world's most extraordinary species including enormous whales, the Weddell seal and the emperor penguin. Antartica can be described as a vast white wilderness of surreal remoteness, extreme and perpetual cold and heart-stopping views. Experiences in Antartica may include whale-watching, climbing and conquering Antartic peaks, kayaking in the icy waters and experiencing the wonders of Antartica's groundbreaking glaciers and polar ice caps. The sheer size and grandeur of Antartica is powerful and overwhelming, a glistening and untouched land of floating ice towers and distinct wildlife. It is simply incomparable to any other place on earth.
This individuality and harshness makes Antartica a must see destination and what better way to do so than on a cruise through the tranquil waters of the Antartic ocean. It is a land of inspiration, bound to provoke appreciation of the parts of the world that never cease to amaze. An Antartic cruise will give you the opportunity to meet the penguins on Snow Hill Island, encounter the water's fascinating whales and cruise the Lemaire Channel and Paradise Harbor.
