Wonders of the White Continent
Far away from congested cities and the frenetic grind, Antarctica is an untamed desert that takes your breath away at every vista. Tap the actual South Pole; waddle with penguins; kayak in turquoise waters amidst humpback whales; and, camp out under a sea of stars! There is plenty to do on The White Continent at the bottom of the Earth. Going on your own is tricky; you’ll need to prepare for tough conditions with supplies and physical skills. Book a special land expedition through an agency under the International Association of Antarctica Tour Operators (or IAATO). Head out around November to March (summer season) when the sun is always shining and the ice has melted just enough to let ships in.
