Top 10 Reasons to Visit Antarctica
The coolest destination on earth, literally, Antarctica is the last great wilderness. A place free of anything man-made, this natural beauty must be discovered before its precious polar ecosystem and wildlife are endangered and lost forever. The 5th largest continent, only about one percent of the total landmass is visible and by far the most unexplored area by mankind. Antarctic encompasses the whole area south of 60° and is comprised of islands, sea and ice shelves. A journey to the South Pole promises a land of extremes only the most adaptive travelers can handle.
Whether you want to admire the ice formations from afar or scale them, grab your crampons and an ice pick and get mountaineering. Ice in the Arctic and Antarctic is thicker, taller, heavier and older than anywhere else on Earth and the billowing statues change so much you will never encounter the same design twice. But don’t be fooled, even with all the ice and frozen tundra, Antarctica is still classified as a desert climate.
