If you want to get inspired by one of the most spectacular places on earth, or visit the remotest and coldest continent in the world, travel to Antarctica; and enjoy the beauty of its wilderness.
Most of the trips to Antarctica depart either from Punta Arenas (Chile) or Ushuaia (Argentina), both at the southernmost tip of the American continent, and around 1000 km away from the Antarctic Peninsula.
There are some of the most remarkable expeditions:
Every one that wants to travel to Antarctica will notice that most of the itineraries are around the Peninsula, since the weather conditions are not as harsh as in the rest of the continent (the waterfront helps to regulate the climate). On the other hand, the variety of its fauna, the humongous ice blocks, and the reminiscences of the human heritage through the different past expeditions, make this place unique. Regarding the ocean wildlife, Antarctica, the Drake Passage, and the South Atlantic are home to a rich variety of incredible species, such as lots of Penguin types (Emperor, Chinstrap, King, Adelie, Macaroni, Gentoo); Killer, Humpback and Minke Whales; Leopard Seals, Antarctic Fur Seals, and Elephant Seals; Antarctic Petrel, Blue-eyed Shags, and many other ones. Besides those made by nature, there are other sites of interests as well, but connected to the human interactiointeraction: settlements and research bases. The abandoned British base at Port Lockroy, or the old base at Deception Island (with warm coastal waters that can get close to 65° C), are some of them. Travel to Antarctica, and discover its hidden treasures!
