Antarctica, "The White Continent," surrounds the South Pole and its nearest landmass is South America. There are no indigenous people on Antarctica. The population varies from fewer than 1,000 in winter to nearly 35,000 in summer. Antarctic visits are mainly concentrated at ice-free coastal zones over the Antarctic summer, the five-month period from November to March.
A frosted wilderness of glistening white as far as the eye can see. Experience natural ice sculptures like enormous works of avant-garde art. See whales, seals, and sea birds worthy of seafaring poems. Sail near monolithic glaciers and among scatterings of icebergs on your Antarctica cruise. Astounding animal encounters – opportunities found nowhere else on earth. This is the modern explorer’s final frontier.
