Antarctica is undoubtedly one of the world's most adventurous destinations. It is a vast, frozen continent which was only first
visited by humans less than 200 years ago. Even now there is no permanent human settlement. A few dozen scientific research stations comprise the only human inhabitants, though intrepid travelers can still find their way down.
Antarctica is far from empty. Its shores team with marine mammals, from playful seals to massive whales. Even more plentiful
are Antarctica's birds. Walking amongst a penguin breeding colony is undoubtedly one of the great highlights of any Antarctic adventure.
Most visitors will arrive on a cruise ship departing from Ushuaia in Argentina. More adventurous travelers might consider crewing on a private sailboat that is heading to the peninsula. (Ask around at the sailboat dock in Ushuaia.) Currently there are
more than 40 ships carrying between 6 and 500 passengers that can get your feet onto Antarctic soil. Extended itineraries may include visits to South Georgia or the Falklands where the wildlife watching is also stupendous.
Antarctica has no government but its policies are established by an international Antarctic Treaty joined by nearly 50 nations. It is truly one of the last frontiers on the planet and is high on the list of dream destinations for many a world-traveler.
Here are a few of the incredible adventures that Antarctic explorers can look forward to:
