Holiday in the Antarctic
Antarctica is one of the last untouched destinations in the world where you can see remarkable wildlife, such as penguins, seals, whales and Orcas, up-close and in abundance midst pristine, awe-inspiring scenery with only a minimal human footprint. As the world’s 5th largest continent, Antarctica is constantly changing its shape and size according to the season and formation of ice. During the winter months, Antarctica doubles in size due to the ice that forms around the coasts.
The White Continent can be divided into 2 main areas that are separated by the Transantarctic Mountains, East Antarctica and West Antarctica – also known as Greater and Lesser Antarctica. Often dubbed as the ‘white’ or the ‘forgotten’ continent, Antarctica truly is the land of extremes and the perfect destination for true explorers wanting to visit the “end of the world”.
