An unspoiled natural wilderness, the continent of Antarctica is one of the most uniquely beautiful places on earth.
Home to a wealth of dramatic wintry landscapes, from soaring mountains and active volcanoes to giant glaciers and cobalt-hued fjords.
Though due to its remote location and hostile climate, it is hardly a major tourist destination, those who journey to its icey shores will find a surprisingly diverse array of wildlife - including numerous species of whale, penguin, and seal - along with a fascinating array of sights to explore and unique activities to try!
From vast colonies of penguins and majestic whales to soaring icebergs and sculpture-like glaciers: follow in the footsteps of history’s greatest explorers and discover the endless natural beauty and unique and fascinating wildlife, of the world’s most remote continent!
Antarctica is only reachable by ship, either from Ushuaia at Argentina’s southernmost tip, or via King George Island which is a 2-hour flight from Punta Arenas in Chile.
May through to September is the best time to visit, as the pack ice has melted sufficiently to allow ships to pass through.
The average winter temperature at the South Pole is about -49°C. Your home freezer is only about -15°C. The wind chill factor means that it can feel much colder.
Rob was a fantastic guide. The trip was very enjoyable and Robs knowledge and expertise were great. Would defo recommend
Excellent service from start to finish. I booked the National 3 Peasks challenge in 24 hours. i had regular communication from Rob and the team prioe to the event checking in on my progress, which really spurred me on as well as a helpful fitness plan i has to folow. For the challenge itself Rob and Tim really helped put the group at ease, and was very encouraging.
