Antarctica has become an adventure destination for just about any kind of traveler — depending on when you go (November to March during summer) and what you want to do. Once known as a continent where few dared to venture and live to talk about it, today’s Antarctica still holds mystery. Its seasons and offerings as an adventure destination take into account all the research and science we now have about this polar climate, allowing for a safe holiday created for every type of journey, experience and activity level. Let’s just touch on a few.
Scenic flights over the continent: total of 14 hours (only 4 of which are over the land mass)
Cruise ships: usually depart from Ushuaia, crossing the Drake Passage
Wildlife watching: penguins, seals, and whales
Intense level adventure
