“The Antarctic exerts the powerful attraction of the inaccessible which leads Man to become passionately engaged. One is never the same after returning from a long stay on the white continent.” – Jean-Louis Etienne
Explored by man since only 1820, this vast icy continent offers spectacular mountain scenery, the world’s biggest icebergs and an extraordinary array of wildlife: fur seals, penguins, albatrosses, sea elephants, orcas and whales live side by side in large numbers. No wonder then, that the number of vessels heading to the region is on the rise.
But that in itself presents a problem; choosing can be confusing! That’s unless you’ve got a travel professional on your side.
