Antarctica, our planet’s southernmost continent, has a string of superlatives attached to it. It holds the largest freshwater reserve on earth, accounting for almost all of the earth’s land ice. It is the coldest region in the world – its wind system ruling the entire planet’s climate, particularly that of the Southern Hemisphere. It is also the highest of all the earth’s continents. By far the most exotic vacation destination around the world you would ever visit, stunning photo opportunities await you around each bend. Whether its spectacularly white landscape of snow, icebergs, and glaciers, or its iconic wildlife of whales, seals, and penguins, each frame is sure to be striking. Home to the South Pole and set almost entirely south of the Antarctic Circle, Antarctica offers expedition cruises to explore its vast icy wilderness. Hauntingly beautiful, towering peaks beckon ardent mountaineers, while kayaking amid the freezing seawaters offers yet another adventure of a lifetime! Like all other grand elemental regions of this earth, such as the open oceans, vast deserts, or high mountain ranges, Antarctica too invokes a humbling sense of our minuscule selves in the face of such spectacular grandeur.
