Destination

Antarctica is an ecological wonder that enthralls explorers, scientists and voyagers alike.

Its unrivaled beauty contrasts with extreme climate conditions, all of which make it an exotic destination -- truly hypnotizing for those few that reach this far away corner of the planet.

Getting to know and contemplate this yet unexplored continent, has been the goal and dream of many adventurers that are not satisfied with simply imagining the farthest corner of the earth, but have made up their minds to enter this wildlife paradise. The Antarctic Continent exposes many hidden secrets for those who visit it.

Antarctica was finally considered a continent in 1840 making it Earth's southernmost continent. Consisting of 98% solid ice, which averages at least 1.6 km in thickness, it is truly unique. This fascinating territory contains more than 90% of the earth’s land ice, which transforms it into the largest fresh water reserve on earth.

On average, Antarctica is the coldest, driest and windiest continent, and has the highest average elevation of all the continents. Since there is little precipitation, except at the coasts, the interior of the continent is technically the largest desert in the world. There are no permanent human residents and Antarctica has never had an indigenous population. Only cold-adapted plants and animals survive there, including penguins, fur seals, mosses, lichens, and many types of algae.

Among the main species that make up marine Antarctic fauna are whales, seals, penguins, and a variety of birds.
