Antarctica

Getting to Antarctica first requires getting to the southernmost tip of South America, either Punta Arenas in Chile or Ushuaia in Argentina. From there, explorers take another flight to a nearby island where they board the ship.

Yet the trip has only just begun – the infamous Drake Passage between South America’s Cape Horn and Antarctica throws many travelers for a loop. Rough seas often result in seasickness, but the expert crew and staff of the ships are well-equipped to make the passage as easy as possible.

In addition to viewing the glaciers, icebergs, and stunning landscapes from the deck of the ship, travelers will have the chance to sea kayak, get professional photography lessons, and even set foot on the continent!

Two of the most visited destinations in conjunction with an Antarctic cruise are the Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. Travelers will be able to explore quaint little towns set into breathtaking cliff sides, amidst gorgeous scenery.

If you are adventurous, scientific-minded, or just a lover of nature and all beauty on Earth, Antarctica is the ultimate destination for you!
