Are you ready for your next great adventure? Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or new to exploring, be ready to experience something truly unique. A once in a lifetime trip to the world’s driest and coldest continent is the perfect expedition for both the travelling aficionado who has seen it all as well as for the novice traveler who wants something rare and extraordinary to remember. From icebergs to penguins, whales and seals, a trip to Antarctica will be an experience that will never leave you.
The sheer exceptionalism of Antarctica makes it an unforgettable place to travel. Of all the cities and countries you have visited, you have never been to one that officially has no actual residents- unless you count the magical wildlife that call Antarctica home as residents! It is precisely because of this lack of human presence that the scenery and wildlife is some of the most pristine and most irreplaceable on Earth. The ideal time to visit Antarctica spans 5 months- and that time is upcoming- from November to March visitors can experience icebergs that range from brilliant white to deep aquamarine. These ancient giants are best witnessed in November. Touring through Iceberg Alley, depending on the size of the ship, guests can get up close and personal with these spectacular wonders of nature. Naturally, ships that cater to smaller crowds (50-100) are able to get closer to the wildlife and scenery than some of the larger ships. Since the turn of the century whalers have recognized the beauty that is this ideal viewing spot, aptly named Paradise Harbor.
While the scenery is exceptionally breathtaking, one of the undeniable allures of this continent- which seems to be otherworldly- is the wildlife. While penguins almost exclusively live in the Southern Hemisphere, the majestic Emperor Penguin is one of the few species of penguins that only lives in Antarctica. Visiting during December and January will allow guests to be awed as they witness the hatching of the penguin chicks. A site so rarely witnessed is bound to be something that leaves a lasting impression on visitors lucky enough to be touring this beautiful continent during the window in which this miracle takes place. Look no further for a once in a lifetime spectacle.
Indisputably, one of the most revered animals that tourists from all over desire to see is the more-often-than-not elusive and humbling mammoth of the sea: the whale. The breaching humpback whales can be spotted in February and March guaranteed to captivate guests as well as those living vicariously through your experience via your Instagram account! You will reflect on your place in this world as you watch the natural wonder of wildlife and environment come together in harmony- existing together in a place that has not been affected by industrial development. This is a vacation that is sure to touch you to your very core.
