Antartica Highlights

Be amazed in this vast land, from the ends of the planet

There is still a place on Planet Earth that remains untouched, a continent of shocking beauty where Nature sets the rules: Antarctica.
Its name means opposite to the Arctic. Often described as a continent of superlatives, Antarctica is the world’s southernmost continent. It is also the world’s highest, driest, windiest, coldest, and iciest continent. Antarctica is about 5.5 million square miles (14.2 million square km) in size, and thick ice covers about 98 percent of the land.It would be essentially circular except for the Antarctic Peninsula, which reaches toward the southern tip of South America. To travel there is to encounter our planet in its purest, naked form.

When you start planning a trip to these latitudes, you understand the magnitude of this region.

90% of the boats leave the city of Ushuaia, after sailing in the famous Beagle Channel, you have to cross one of the bravest seas in the world, the Drake Passage, to reach the different attractions.

The Antarctic peninsula is the warmest area and for this reason it concentrates the greatest diversity of species; In addition, due to the geographical characteristics it presents, it is the most accessible area for boats that visit the different sites of the Peninsula.

Once in the region and according to the climatic conditions, landings are made, generally in rubber boats and with a time spent on land of a few hours.
Some cruises offer unconventional activities like kayaking, diving, camping, and trekking.
